Rather than roast a pig splayed out on a rack, we opted for a rotisserie for a better display. The pig went on at 8:00pm for the following day, it was a 104# pig and took 20 hours and 175# of hardwood to cook. The rotisserie was a rental and not in good shape, it took an hour to get it working so that the chain would not jump off the gears, then 5 minutes after it was working, the chain broke, so every 20 minutes I went out to turn the pig and check the coals. It was a peaceful evening here at the Cedars, I got to watch the sun rise and discovered that we have some huge mosquitoes here in Dexter.
