oh man so sorry my bad .. my sis had the pics in her camera and i had to wait for her to send them from me .. alot of pics as you can imagine .. then i went through and was concetrating on the setup ... i got one of it done..and one i posted while i was cooking that night too of it about half way done

 

as you can see i tend to put them farther to one side of the skewer when i can .. just to keep the heat a bit off the motor .. but i've had them close to the motor before too in the past never seemed to bother it a bit

 

half way cooked (actually it could of been taken off and eaten at this point but as i said i wanted to go for a long cook time and it was still the middle of the night

ok here is the finished product .. i know it looks dark and it is but it's in no way burnt and part of that dark is just the picture itself .. by the way under the pig and the aluminumfoil trays we cut up to put under it ( 3 of them) is covered in foil my pig board .. a big slab of 3/4 inch plywood i use only to carry my cooked pigs on .. sturdy and a great way to transport it from outside to inside

I see that the pig was minus a lot of fairly important parts. (Important to the pig, I mean).

Can you get it with all its full entitlement of "bits and pieces" included?

 

The reason I ask is that one can make superb brawn out of the brains etc, sausages from the intestines, and sweetbreads sliced and fried are lovely.

 

(For those who dont know what sweetbreads are, there are two of them, but only on male pigs.)

i could get live pigs around here and raise one myself .. but with the kid the job and 3 going on 4 dogs just not gonna go that route .. that would be the only way..

 

besides if i tried to raise just 1 pig i know my kid would name it and that would be that .. pet pig :lol:

 

the ones i get from the restaurant supply butcher are gutted the head (brains tongue eyes) are completely intact but the body cavity is totally hollow with the occasional exception (about 50% of the time) of the kidneys ... never have asked why they leave those in sometime .. but sometime they do

 

 

years back i did have someone give me a fresh killed pig once a little one and we did indeed use it all from tail to snout .. hairy little sucker .. i'll never forget watching my wife actually using one of my old razors to shave it down :lol: funny but true and it worked well .. wouldn't advise it though ... but it was a small pig .. 30 or 35 pounds

sooner or later i'm gonna try a turkey on this set up .. thinking of doing one on my next vacation in july .. i'll say it's for my mother in laws birthday .. she loves turkey

 

my brother usually has a big turkey fry leading in to thanksgiving so we've done our thanksgiving birds that way for years .. but i figure i can easily fit 5 big birds on this setup easy so i may go that route if the single one i hope to make comes out good.. and i bet it will

Well done Broden ! My last memory of Cebu is seeing the lechon being roasted on the side of the road as we drove to the Airport at dawn. We have also lived in The Gilarmi, Makati for several months at a time and delighted in buying from Rustan's lechon cut off the whole pig roasted in store - also hot roasted chestnuts, live fish and crabs, buko etc etc. Expensive of course from Rustan's, Makati, but washed down with the 20p San Miguel I convinced myself that the values balanced out.

I thought sweetbreads were the glands from the neck??
