There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads!

Whole Piglet cook on Christmas day

As mentioned earlier, I did cook a 21 pound piglet on my XL. I cook it indirect at 250. The pig went on the Egg at 0800. I sprayed it down with a mixture of apple cider vinegar, apple juice, and kosher salt. I sprayed it down every hour until I took it off at 4 PM. After an hour sitting on the counter inside, I then pulled the meat and piled it on a big cookie sheet. I think it was 9 to 10 pounds of mixed pulled pork. (I forgot to mention that I had hickory chunks throughout the lump so it was in hickory smoke the whole time.

This was the best, bar none, barbecue I have produced to date. Much better than the butts I do, which are plenty good in their own right. I think the mixture of meats, (butt, ham, rib, belly) is the key to this style of barbecue. I'll do this cook again and maybe before next Xmas.
Hats off to Buckeyegger who got me going on a supplier of piglets!
