I'm new to the forum but have been getting Jeff's emails for a couple years now. I have a Brinkman vertical with offset firebox. I like Charcoal with huge chunks of Hickory or Mesquite for most of my pork experiments. I've tried Apple wood chunks on some chickens and a turkey. Love to smoke just about anything that was once alive. I think all of Gods creatures have a place ................ on my plate next to the mashed potatoes and gravy I'm looking for tips on smoking a whole hog. I have a thread called "Smoking the Whole Hog" on the Pork forum. Any help, links, tips, tricks would be greatly appreciated. I need to smoke some flavor into those piggies.
