Having my first pig roast this week, just needed a bit of guidance and advice.
I have a 50lb pig that has been injected and brined for 1.5 weeks. I have this BBQ:
I've heard I'll need about 1 hour of indirect heat from lump charcoal for every 10lbs of pork. I want to season it with just S&P on the skin and in the ribcage.
50lb pig + 36kg (80lb) lump charcoal = 5-6 hours cooking time?
I've got a burn bucket to get my initial amount of charcoal started and to start top-up batches. I want to keep and use the trotters and head to get some gelatin. Any suggestions for leftover variety cuts would also be appreciated!
