    In my book, that's smoked pig. Sure, you could have sped things up and/or infussed more smoke into the product by inclosing or covering it, but IMHO you cooked a pig over smoke and that's smoking.

    Looks great.

    Check out the section called "Catering and Large Group Gatherings". You will find a lot of info about cooking a whole hog. Especially look at posts by Cowgirl. She's a pro at it! I did one, thanks to her, and it turned out great!

    Hey Beer_man,

    Nice looking pig! I'm sure the neighborhood appreciates it more than hamburgers and hotdogs too!
