You may have to cull through it, separating cooking wood from fireplace wood, but what other option do you have? I would think learning to cook wi ...

I've never cooked a whole hog, but have cut up a bunch.

The thing that bothers me here is the dripping situation. From a 200 lb hog, I remember seeing at least a 5 gallon bucket of grease.

Yeah, it's way too early to give up.

If it's below 20 F I don't bother. If it's raining, I have longer cook times. I use wood and charcoal.

The thin smoke is just what the doctor ordered. You will get a nice smoke flavor, and a nice ring in your product.

You can use only water, or 1/2 water and 1/2 BBQ sauce. You do need moisture of some kind, and with a 12# or bigger packer this isn't too much water. I also leave an air space in the foil, the foil ...
