    @Charlesmaneri-most eggcellent cook and documentation.  When the enjoyment settles, could you share the directions/recipe that led you to this "promised land"?  If nothing else I want to use the "face factor" for an extended trip to the couch...and beyond!  I just never learn!

    Great results, makes the journey worth it. Actually in this case the journey was probably worth it by itself.

  • Well Done!!!!  ^:)^

    Was it difficult to carve?  Our old church hired a guy to cook a hole hog in his stick burner in the parking lot.  It was a pulled pork party!

  • @GlennM the funny thing is the Ladies eat pork when I make Butt they eat it like it's going out of style ,I guess it has something to do with it being so cute or the fact that it was a baby really not sure anyway it was their loss

    People don't seem to like knowing where their food comes from and what it looks like in it's original form. I think everyone should slaughter, cook and eat an animal at least once in their lifetime.
