    I just put on a ham from a 80 pound sow we trapped the other day. I have grilled with this recipe and baked with this recipe before with success so I'm guessing smoking should be no different. Here is my recipe.

    I injected the ham with
    3/4 cup simply apple juice (don't buy off brand or it ruins the marinade)
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/8 cup salt
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire

    Then I sprinkle
    Season salt
    Ground black pepper
    Brown sugar
    Splash of apple cider vinegar

    I drape a few pieces of bacon over the meat to kind of baste it while it cooks then I sprinkle a little brown sugar on top of bacon.

    On the 18.5 WSM at around 225-250 with applewood chunks

    Here are a few pics

    We ate the big ones and have the little ones in an enclosure getting them fattened up right now.
     
  8. pretty darn cool. Looks mighty tasty and have quite a few meals on the hoof so-to-speak. i have to find a place that wouldn't mind me traveling south to help them with their feral pig issues. none really to be had in MI (though there are some localized areas that have some, but not many, hopefully it stays that way).
