In honor of national pig day, we cooked a pig in the ground this weekend...ok so maybe we were going to cook it whether it was national pig day or not. this is starting the fire to burn the wood down to get a bed of coals This is seasoning and wrapping the pig in chicken wire and foil. This is the pig in the pit. It is sitting on a sheet of tin on top of the coals. Another sheet of tin goes over the hole and then is buried with dirt. Supper The hog cooked overnight and was ready to eat in about 14 hours. Sure wish you all would have been here!
