Place Porky on the Egg in the "Lotus Position".

    That was pretty cool when he pulled it.
  • What does that sit on so his rear end doesn't get burned. Doesn't look like a plate setter used as low as it is.

    I only got to see the "12:00 viewing". They lifted the dome so everyone could check it out and take pics. Earlier they lifted too frequently and lost too much heat, so they limited how often the dome got raised. Wasn't there when they put it on, so I don't know what setup they used.

    Someone had said it was in a pan on at platesetter legs up. Didn't get a close look myself. I bet it would work with the pan on the Egg feet to lift it off the setter a tad.

    Holy crap! I can't believe it.But a picture is worth a thousand words.Very curious as to how it turned out and I am sure further posts will be made on this event.
  • That is freaking awesome! Wondering if the cook was from Arkansas...been a lot of Hogs in that position on Saturdays lately.. :laugh:
  • Maybe that's the Arkansas version of Beer Butt Chicken

    If there was a beer can in that thing's butt, it had better be one of those 5 liter draft kegs!
  • We were there right after they pulled him out. That was a sight on the v rack.
