Doin Up The Whole Hog - The Shindig !

All day hog cooking .... I started off by sleeping in and Wally had to get the pig going without me for 08:00! When I arrived on the scene at 09:30 the temperature in the cooker was already steady at 275f. So.... I made a couple of smoke chip bags with hickory and got those going....

After that it was pretty much waiting for the hours to go by switched to a new propane tank about 13:00..... drank some beers and had fun!
Here's a few of the folks at about 18:00 .....

Wally got a great gift from the kids! A digital remote cooking thermometer...
The thermo-couple goes in the meat - the transmitter sits by the cooker - the receivers goes in your pocket and beeps when the right temperature is reached! We were shooting for 180f ( fallin' off da bones!) worked out to about 10 hr's cooking time!!

The BeanBag game kept lot's of folks busy until supper! ....

Here's the beast just before serving!

Here's a few folks relaxing after the pig out.... there's about 50 more still at the tables!

Back to partying! First rockin' out to Johnny Rivers then!
Polka time ........

Spoon Playin' Fools ...... To the Proclaimers of all things!!

Damned near Full Moon!

This went on to the early morning!

Sounds like a good time. Best wishes and time to recoup.

Oh man, now I'm hungry. I'm going to start driving north just in case there's leftovers.

Hey hey.... 6hrs sleep in 48!
I was gone all day Sunday Fergy!

100+ guests and about 50lbs of cooked meat off the carcass...... there was a bit of rump left over and some of the shoulder but that went into a roaster as pulled pork in BBQ sauce.
