I know what you mean, have them round here. I haven't been impressed with them since the whole thing ends up shredded pork with BBQ sauce. I was disappointed the first go round, just sandwich's, big whoop.

It is more for the show. You can do it a lot cheaper and quicker if you just cook butts.

I disagree. Whole Hog produces complex flavors that you cannot achieve doing butts or ribs. This is because it cooks in its own fat. Plus, you get the full range of cuts from cheek meat to knuckles to tails to tenderloins to pure cubes of fat. When we have done whole hogs in the past, we just pass out knives and everyones stands around the table cutting chunks of their favorite body parts and drop them straight into their mouths. Its medieval. Its fun. Bread just takes up space in your stomach on such occasions.

Butts are definitely easier and cheaper, but nowhere near as festive, challenging and flavorful.
It doesn't have to be fun to be fun.

Wild & crazy, can't be stopped. Only the strong will survive.

Keep your knife sharp and your skillet greasy.

I would be pissed off if the whole hog ended up being shredded. However, plan on getting only about 30% yield from it.

I dont know if it tastes any better but it definitely sets the mood for the party.
Any time you can get out to hunt, is a good day to hunt.

Nothing wrong with butts but whole hog is more flavorful.We always kept a pan under it to catch some of the drippings to baste it with. You figure whole hog you got the Hide that's sealing in a lot of the juices. You can also use some hide to make Cracklin's.You also have the head for hogshead cheese. When we pull them apart some would be shredded and sauced for sandwiches. The Tenderloins and a shoulder were always put on a pan by themselves .The Jowls usually never made it to the table .
Another good part of hanging them to cook is tying on chickens,rabbits,squirrels,and corn on the cob for the cooks to eat while it's cooking.

My brother-in-law rented a cooker from College Grove a week ago and had a whole pig roast. The pulled pork was great. I found this listing on the internet so it is probably the place: C&F Meat Company in College Grove, TN, 615-395-4819. He said it is expensive but worth it. All the cooking is done by the time the guests arrive so have a buddy or two over during the 18 hour cooking. Have lots of beer available too. My neighbor did this 5 years ago and his turned out great too. It must be almost fool-proof so anyone can do it.
