We are doing a su30# suckling pig this weekend and was wondering how long it will take and what temp to cook at. I was thinking 250 degrees for 10 hours.

I did a 35# one last year for a friend's B-Day, and it only took about 8 hours.

What temp did you do it at? Do you cook them indirect and do you butterfly them?

I did a 43 pound pig a couple of months ago, racer style 250 degrees and was done in 6 hrs. This was on an offset smoker, I was really surprised that it got done that soon but it turned out great!

wraydp, I cooked a wild pig on Labor Day that took 8hrs. cooking at 225 to 250. It did not have the skin on, I butterflied it, layed foil under it to protect the meat on the grate side. I cooked it for three hrs. open then kinda wrapped it up for 5hrs more.
Here is the link to it.

Also here is another link to some pig pig pics cooked by reptileink, bigdawgsal, and Big Ron.
