How much pork can one eat, even with food bank give-aways?
For larger sows, and even an occasional boar, we found the old pit seemed to work the best, providing a palatable hunk a hawg.
Dig large pit. Fill the pit around two feet above the top with wood. Lots and lots of wood. Fire 'er up. When it's burnt down, considerably, take the hawgs, quartered, and placed into gunny sacks (burlap bags), soaked to the gills with water. Toss in the quartered hog(s). Cover with dirt, left over from digging the hole. Dig up the hogs when done.
This was the methodology that we used for high school keg parties/pig roasts. Start the fire around 4-5 a.m. It should be burned down by 6, or earlier. Dig them up between 6 and 7 p.m. the same day.
That was done with stolen domestic pigs. It seems to work quite well for larger feral hogs. It seems to taste GREAT.
Or, that could be due to the drinking that starts when the fire is started, and the naps (passing out) in between beverages.
Never tried it sober, so I cannot given an honest answer.
