I have never roasted one but always say I am going to but if you google "3men with nothing better to do" there is a lot of good info on what you will want to do thru out the whole cooking and serving process. Very time consuming but well worth the wait laugh

We slit the skin in several spots all over the hog and insert a clove of garlic under the skin. We inject butter garlic marinade all over the hog and slather the inner cavity with the rest of the jar of marinande after injecting the pig and sprinkle in some seasonings. Couple of big cans of Bavarian saurekraut in the cavity along with 3 lbs. of brats and on the smoker she goes. The smoker we rent is not a rotisserie style, but rather a big smoker with a grate to lay the hog on and they do not recommend turning the hog (though we do once a clouple hours into the cooking process). You just have to turn it before it is cooked to far... lesson learned! the feet pulled off upon turning once, so now we do it 2 hours in to the process. 2 whole turkeys that are injected and rubbed with seasonings go on the side of the smoker for 4-5 hours and you have a meal for anyone who shows up. We learned on our first try that not everyone will eat roast pig. Sp now we have Pulled pork, brats and kraut, and turkey! A cold keg of 1919 root beer and a few adult beverages for those old enough, side dishes and deserts... MMM MMm. I oughtta think about doing another next summer, been a couple years now. My brother and I have done 4 now and each one we do a little better. The above was the last way we did it.

Good Luck!

Let me know when you decide to roast a pig labs. I will come on down. Even if I have to pay a cover, that sounds like a meal someone shouldn't pass up. grin

I shot and butcherd a pig for a guy on wed for a hog roast. He wanted it skinned out. It was about 250 lbs live weight. I believe it was for a wedding reception this weekend.

I have roasted alot of hogs over the years and what we have done is used a rub of spices and rubbed the whole inside of the hog with it then depending on the size of the hog we stuff the cavity with whole roasting chickens also with a thick coating of spices 6-8 birds usually fills them up nicely. An easy way to get this done is go to the supermarket and you can buy whole roasting chicken from golden plump I believe that have a hickory rub and lemon pepper, unbag them take the giblets out and put them right into the cavity. I have also used a syringe and injected marinade right into the hog itself just like Labs4me. There are alot of premade marinades out there you can buy off the shelf or you can concoct your own. One other thing you could do, is sprinkle natures season over the meat once it is cut and pulled and mix that around as that is a nice combo for pork as well. We set out one pan of pulled pork with BBQ sauce, one plain with the natures season on it and the chicken all gets put into one pan. Good luck, my mouth is watering just thinking about it! Ken Davis and Famous Daves are usually what we use for BBQ sauce and you can get them in gallon jugs.

Cook times really depend on the type of roaster you have andthe size of the hog. We used to start a charcoal roaster at 5 a.m. get the hog, stuff it with the chickens and put it on the roaster at 6 and cook it at 350 for 8-9 hours. 200lbers fully cooked by 3:30 taken off at 4 and cut up for dinner. The propane roasters I have used have been a lower temp cook and a 24 hour deal, start them at 10 and take them off at 10 clean them up and be ready to serve folks at 11. If you rent a roaster the folks who rent it will have suggested cook times for you and temps to cook at. Have a few people lined up for cutting and cleanup. We typically will have four to 6 guys for cutting.

I have a little experience- I do 800+ a year...its my job.

We use all propane roasters. 16-26 hour cooking time. Slow and Low! Back in the old days when we used charcoal, it was still a 15 hour cook time. If you use coal, use just enough, but not too much. Speed cooking takes flavor away.

Ask me any questions you may have.

    • Looks like the rust belt should of went with a better rustproofing package.........     Donald Trump may have positioned himself as the champion of American workers but Republicans on the Hill are already embracing his “do as I say, not as I do” modus operandi. Under the backing of Paul Ryan, the GOP leadership stripped a provision from a water bill Monday that would have required American-made iron and steel products to be used in infrastructure projects in Flint and elsewhere funded by the Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF). Democratic Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown blasted Republicans, who removed the “Buy America” provision (which passed the Senate with strong bipartisan support) while the House and Senate were reconciling the bills. In other words, GOP leadership scrapped it behind closed doors. “By stripping meaningful Buy America rules from the water infrastructure bill, Washington leadership is choosing China and Russia over Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin,” said Brown. “This was the first major test of whether Washington establishment Republicans would live up to President-elect Trump’s promises to put American products and American workers first – they failed, and American iron and steel workers will pay the price.” Now, Brown is teaming up with Democratic Sens. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania to insert the provision back in the bill. They want to reattach the provision to a nearly $12 billion Water Resource Development Act (WRDA), which authorizes dozens of infrastructure projects around the country and is on track to pass the House this week. “I’m not giving up on this fight,” Baldwin said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “Why would we pass a bill that only benefits Russian and Chinese steel corporations when we could be providing certainty to American manufacturers of steel and iron?” That sentiment was shared by some steel worker groups earlier this week: “From our end it’s a little baffling,” said Roy Houseman, a legislative representative for the United Steelworkers. “It’s been a program that’s been really successful, and it has bipartisan support. We’re just very confused by the Speaker, who’s not listening to the rest of his caucus.” In essence, “Buy America” sounds as nice to Republicans as it did to Trump, but in practice they would rather preserve the "Buy Chinese" option that Trump uses to build his skyscrapers.
    • If there are any twins fans left, I wonder if these new young bucks running the club have asked mauer if he would lift his no trade clause?  I think we know the answer.  I find it interesting to watch these winter meetings trades etc but we are never involved.  It seems like we are missing something as fans.
    • Sorry BD2 --I think the trout is the most dependent on everything Now the king of conservatism is a-----------------------carp   This could get interesting!
    • Sorry but the Walleye is the most Liberal fish in Minnesota. In most lakes it depends solely on the government and taxpayers of the state for it's very survival and proliferation. Lot's of other fish breeds are able to take care of themselves without help from the Government, those are the conservative fish. 
    • They make a variety of suits to suit your fishing style really. If you are a run and gun style fisherman, or if you're a guy that sits in the fish house all day they, and most brands nowadays have one that will suit your needs. I'm more hot blooded so when they first came out I ordered the Lite suit, a little less insulation but just as durable. It has been discontinued but it I think it was replaced with the Predator suit. 
    • Nah....walleyes would be hard-line Republicans;  conservative with little or no imagination, terrified of doing something new or different or pushing ahead with anything not tried before. Show me a 6-pound walleye and I'll show you Barry Goldwater with scales  or Ronald Reagan when he was not napping. PF is right, catching a walleye,  even a nice big fat one, is about as exciting as a naked tussle with Rosie O'Donnell or dragging a bag of seaweed into your boat. We used to catch some really big ones in MT and after a bit we learned that the big perch fought better and were way more tasty!  No kidding, those perch....12-15" were way better eating.  But then we were catching them from cold clear water. But if you are really new to fishing and don't possess a lot of skill by all means become a walleye fisherman-anybody can do it.
    • Well it's "Throw Down" time! For years I have kept a bag of sunflower seeds in the cup holder of my SUV to nibble on as I ride along. In the last few weeks since about the last weekend up north Deer hunting I would come in and think, man I really down some seeds, that was a pretty new bag? Then checking my oil one day noticed some empties under the hood!  Um, someone's having a party? Went to pick up my Deer at the butcher today and again found the new bag almost empty! Checked back seat floor and found a few sprinkles on the floor! That's it, don't mind the little guy along for a ride but don't touch my seeds! Thought about setting up the trail cam to plan some strategy, but just went with the blind two trap set front and back seat floor. Report when I get some results!
    • Read it again grasshopper, I never said any such thing.     Pence LOST jobs, Johnson gained jobs and the money didn't come out of revenue that was already being produced. Johnson's money came out of NEW tax revenue that would have never been earned if they didn't do the deal.   I don't know what that quote is you posted but I never said any of that.
    • Catching a walleye is about as exciting as reeling in a bath towel. Not sure how that justifies being an elitist. Bullheads put up a better fight.    I always considered walleyes to be the liberals of the fish world. 
    • When was the last time? 1835? That was the last time the national debt was paid off.     How would you know that? We've never taken a trillion dollars off the debt EVER.
