Whole Hog in a FAT 50?
« on: July 12, 2010, 03:19:05 pm »
Anyone done one, and if so what size hog and did you use as a rack to put the hog in and take it out?  Is there a Hog kit for the FAT 50 and if not where can I get a hog rack?  I am worried about the separating support between the two doors that might cause trouble with getting a hog in and out.

we cook pigs all the time in ours. you can do 2- 100 pounders side by side on the bottom rack of the large side or one one top and one on bottom butterflied open on the large side.
attached is a 100 lb pig we did a couple weeks ago.
i present them right on the rack, just pull it out and decorate with some fruit and vegies and your ready to go.

here is one we did in a traditional running position. you have to remove the upper rack and place it so it is looking at you when you open the lid.
i am sure you can go bigger than 100lbs if you put it in at an angle but i do 100lbs or less because they fit so well.

You guys who do whole hogs really have presentation down.  This looks so good.
