    Cookin' some pork!




    Advertisements
    This pretty much hits into the era. But young son has gotta cook some wild hogs weekend after next for a wedding. So we are doing a dry run today and have throwed together this quick pit to prepare the porcine creatures into culinary delights. Usually our swine turn out pretty good. But we can always use a little practice so we don't loose our edge! Least I'm dressed for the occasion!

    Our hastily prepared box


    Fire a goin'!

    Hoooo Dawgie! Nothing better under the sun than pit-cooked pork! Use dry hickory and white oak and let the pig slow cook six or eight hours over a bed of low coals...dang good!

    I'm hungry already! Great pics but post some of the finished porkers

    Hope you've got a few good beers to wash them down with.

    Well I dunno if we have "good" beer but we got beer! This is a test run so we only have a butt, side of ribs, and a couple of links of elk sausage goin' for this test run.

    Atticus, I'm out of my fav wood, post oak (which is a white oak) but I have bunch of mesquite cut so we're using it. Don't like to go too heavy on the mesquite too much. But I will get some pics when the meat is presentable!!!

    Nice and slow! Yeah. I know the pit is overkill, but next weekend there will be 3 wild hogs on this pit! The Bride shot them last evening!!! Yes, the Bride did. She's a nice girl!

    Looks really good. I like the pit you made.
    I remember my grandfather telling of digging a pit to cook the hogs in.
    They always made a big to do when they did it.
