Who does it? Me and my buddies decided to do our first pig right before we left for Afghanistan. Had no clue how to but we pulled it off and learned alot. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363992178.888178.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363992214.158181.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363992248.447247.jpg

Then we got back from deployment and did another one for my platoon. It came out a lot better. <br />ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363992319.354091.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363992359.535081.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363992397.264004.jpg

So now my company commander tasked me to do one for the company after a 20 day field problem. I'm getting two 130lb hogs to cook for a company family/fun day on Monday. I can't wait!! How do you all do it? Buy pigs dressed already? Wood or charcoal??

I drive about 600 miles every year just to buy some whole hog BBQ.  They guy I buy from mostly cooks with pecan wood.  But he burns his wood outside in a huge tank like cylinder thing with an open bottom to it.  Then he shovels the burning embers that fallout the bottom to his pits that are inside.  I think his family has been doing this since about 1970.  I think its about the best in the country.   Checkem out !  :love:

I've been thinking about doing one with nothing but wood embers. Only problem I have is finding enough wood to do it. I think the next one I do is going to be with wood. I'm an addict of BBQ pit masters. Watched all the seasons and really got into BBQ. That's what made me want to try to cook one. We got a new lieutenant when we got back that had never shot anything, so of course we made him shoot the last one. It's just a great time doing the whole thing. From picking it up to cleaning it and cooking it. It's a nice time to get all the families in the platoon get together and relax and eat.

Thank you for your service.

 

I was involved with 2 different pig roasts. Both used wood heat. The meat was sandwiched between to metal wire racks, and were rotated every 1/2 hour. It took about 12 hours, and man were we drunk by the time the meat was done!

Thank you for your service, enjoy all the BBQ you can, I know it is good eatin. I have heard and read that apple wood is suppose to be real good to use, along with other fruit tree woods, oak is on the harsh side. Good luck with all you cooking and don't be afraid to experiment.

Art, if your anywhere around IN I have plenty of walnut and cherry your welcome to have. I started winter with 20+ cords so I think I could spare some for our troops.

We picked em up today and killed/dressed them today. We got my new platoon leader lieutenant to kill one. He was way too motivated. We almost got him to wrestle one down but he got scared. Hahahaha. We're gonna start cooking tomorrow night. <br />ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364069183.031227.jpg <br />ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364069219.680533.jpg

After 10.5 hours the pigs were done. We cut up the meat and just had enough for everyone. <br />ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364237297.497516.jpg

My first memory of a Whole Hog Barbecue was as a teenager. Dad cut a limb out of a Tree for a spit and me and two brothers had to trade off turning it all day long. We Earned our feed that day let me tell you!! It sure was good though.
