    How long did it take to do that hog? I have always wanted to try my hand at that.

    I believe that one was about 140 pounds. We brine the entire hog in a bath tub overnight and inject it with the brine. We then generally start it cooking the evening before on a covered spit rotating about 4-5 revolutions per minute. We use charcoal for the heat source and keep large chunks of apple wood on it for smoke and try to keep the internal temp of the unit around 250-275 degrees and it is usually done about 2:00 pm the next day, so roughly 14-16 hours.

    Feet're OK as long as they have peace signs tatted on 'em.

    I was fortunate enough to get a cut of that homemade bacon and let me just say, wow! Cut it into cubes and fry it. Was like little tender bacon candy!

    Last year was the last year, but my Dad's friend bought the spit from John and plans on continuing the tradition, so it will still live on.

    They will never beat the days at Cicero though, those were the best and I really miss those days.
