    With the fire ring out could you get enough charcoal in there for the full cook?

    We did a pig back in the old hood ON New Year's Eve. Stole a 55 gallon drum, drilled holes for a grate for the coals, built a temporary "pit", cooked all night. Best New Years Day ever.  The cultesac ate well for two days!

    Epic cook right there-can't wait for the end-game.  And thanks for the play-by-play.

  • After a nap I went and took a peek. Man that sucker got dark! Maybe too much smoke on it or something, but the internal temp is at 145. I assume this is getting close to a stall? Who knows. Probe is in the shoulder. 
    If anyone is wondering, the eyes popped rather soon. Within the first hour.
    Cost? 27 pounds cost me $130 with tax

  • I guess I never thought about what smoke would do on skin...I know some of the butts I have done look like a freaking meteorite! 

  • Like I said. Too much smoke turned her black. Big whoop, she wont be pretty when people dig in. Temp is now at 156. Was in the stall for the better part of an hour or so. Plan on foiling it and putting it in the cooler for a while before people come over.

    Nice job my friend. Not many people pull a whole hog off of the BGE. I salute you sir. Just a tip. To prevent over darkening once your color is set to your liking you can do 3 things to stop farther darkening. One, stop the smoke. Two, tent the meat. Three, drop temp 25-50 degrees for the finish depending on actual cooking temp. Just thought I would share. Again nice job.

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.
