10lb suckling pig

Cooked a suckling pig, 10lbs, in my large egg. Incredible! Apple wood smoke, 6 hours at 250.

    Very nice. Hope it tasted as good as it looked.

    It was amazing! Once everyone got over the shock of the baby pig, they were polishing their plates

    Awesome cook, I assume the 10 lb. weight was dressed?  Any idea what the live weight was?  Who did the scalding and scraping?  I would love to give that a try, please post details.

    10-11lb suckling pig...

    Temp 250 degrees for 6 hours.  Didn't do anything to it but salt, pepper and garlic salt on the inner cavity.  After, wrapped him up with foil and towels and put him in the Yeti for a bit.  It was unbelievable.

    10-11 lbs was dressed.  No prep for me at all, bought it from a farmer.  that size was perfect for a Large BGE.  Find a local farmer who does whole pigs for people for roasting, call them and ask for a suckling and tell them the weight you are looking for.  This pig fed about 10 easily, with some other choices of bbq

    For those of us that can not get a suckling pig, get a larger one and try making porchetta. See post #97 here:
  • I wonder how many of those you could fit in an xl?

    Spectacular! Where did you measure the IT to decide when it was done?
