Every year I think about doing this. My only experience is when a group of us inherited a full hog after the planner/idea-guy had an emergency gallbaldder operation and a pig and uber-rotisserie contraption was delivered to the door. We way undercooked the beast and one person got sick (but it was pretty and smelled good).
Can you recommed online resouces for this? I live in South OC, CA and would love to cook a pig for Labor Day. If I could find a rental rotiserrie place and a suckling pig source I'd be a happy camper.
