    The cinder block method is the easiest for a pig that size. (if you do not have a cooker.)

    Takes 30 cinder blocks, a grate and some tin for a lid.

    Ooooo,
    In that case I'd treat each piece individually, your favorite rub for the ribs, bacon on the loins, etc.. Smoke as much of the meat as you can get into the GOSM.
    I'm not sure how much a GOSM will hold.
    Sorry!
