    Hello all-  this is my first post and am in desperate need of advice.  I will be barbecuing a half of a pig on Saturday that will weigh about 20-25 lbs.  I plan on low and slow- 225-235 degrees using a home made steel drum smoker.  I know I want indirect heat but what kind of time frame am I looking at?  Will it be longer because the pig was older/bigger when it started and I am only doing half?  The meat being older etc and not a very small 20lb suckling pig?  I am thinking in the ball park of 9-10 hours but really am not sure. Any suggestions/experiences would be welcome!
