OK, so my neighbor and I have decided to get a little CRAZY!! We want to cook a hole hog ... in a pit. Anyone ever done that? Any points, tips, advises ... thoughts ... warnings ... etc.

Butterflied on expanded metal?
wrapped in burlap or banana leaves and buried with coals and hot rocks?

Had a guy come to the restaurant a few years back and wanted me to check out his pig along with 13 others. When he uncovered it from the pit the smelled gagged some, and others instantly heaved. Not to discourage you but do your home work.I will never forget that smell! Good luck! Needless to say, his little party was ruined. P.S. If I remember correctly Omar and a friend did one. He is up your way check with him.
