Jim that looks like fun. I have cooked several hogs in the ground, always a good time. I love the skin. num num. Takes a good six hours in the ground how long in your "Microwave"?
6hrs?? that doesn't seem like very long...

understand i've never cooked in the ground. when you say "in the ground" how do you mean exactly? I've always wanted to try that out..

i chose both. charcoal has a nice flavor, but i am fat an impatient. we have a gas grill at home b/c it is quicker and more convenient.

I wish they'd have a population control hunt for the humans, we're the ones that are overrun!

Even the raccoons don't have a chance around here. Mama 'coon was out in the day along the marsh for food (normal behavior to forage for food animals out in the daytime and while with babies) and I guarantee someone called it in as a "rabid danger" I wish these idiots would open up their eyes and learn something once in a while.
If you see a coon in the daytime be very cautious. They are a nocturnal animal and only venture during the day when they are sick or very old.


I do understand what you are saying most people move into an area and think that everything around them needs to go just so they can sleep better at night.

Deer run rampant here and every year the PD gets out their 308 with night scope and takes them out. You can get on a list for one if you know the right people, but beware, as soon as they get one, it's on your porch to deal with.

I prefer to do the hunting myself, that's more than half the fun...

We should start a thread on what's the weirdest thing that someone has ever cooked on a grill.

Seriously, I've done extensive research and talked with wildlife rehabbers about coon behavior - a 'coon out minding its own business for a mid-day food search is normal behavior. People are diurnal creatures yet are notorious for getting up in the middle of the night to scavenge their kitchen for food. Does that mean don't approach your spouse when they have roused for a midnight snack? Beware, they may attack!

Most folks just know bits and pieces of an animal's behaviors. I totally understand and respect the necessity of being cautious if an animal is ill/diseased/injured but there is more to these creatures than most folks will acknowledge.

What if I see a raccoon/opossum/skunk out during the day?
Animal Makesafe Frequently Asked Questions | Environmental Health and Safety | The University of Texas at Austin

Although nocturnal animals are most active throughout the night, it is not an indication that something is necessarily wrong if seen out during the day. Nocturnal animals often DO come out during the day.

Pet food, bird seed, and garbage can be powerful attractants. Weather changes also affect wildlife. A mother skunk or raccoon will often venture out in the daytime to take a well deserved break from her babies. At certain times of the year, particularly in the Fall, animals must be efficient in preparing for the winter and maximize their foraging time to find food, therefore starting out during daylight is not uncommon. Another possibility to consider is if an animal has been displaced from its home due to construction, then it is forced to move on sometimes during the day in search of a new shelter. The winter and early spring months signifies mating season for most species, meaning a peak in activity throughout the day for that time frame. Often, nocturnal animals seen in the early morning/afternoon hours are just taking their time getting home.

If a nocturnal animal is out during the day and is sick you will know it. The symptoms when an animal is sick or injured can vary, but regardless it’s fairly obvious that something is wrong. If you are concerned, please call us or Animal Control immediately about ill animals. Don’t attempt to take action yourself.

Dig a big hole.

start a big fire in hole.

Season piggy. I like Famous Dave's Rib Rub.

Squeeze piggy in between two large grates.

Wrap piggy and grates in foil.

Lay piggy, grates and foil on hot coals.

Shovel coals all around and on top of piggy.

Back fill hole.

Tap Keg and drink beer for six hours.

Have sober friend shovel out piggy.

Send sober friend to get more beer.

Remove piggy from foil and grates.

Eat skin.

Eat piggy all night.

Im personally a fan of wood. Its a pain in the butt, and it need way too much attention but the smokey flavor is the most delicious IMHO. we only grill about twice a week so it becomes a family affair.

I really enjoy grilling and smoking so I thought I would show you my little smoker.







I can smoke close to 80lb on each rack and has six. The most I have ever done was 400lbs of Iowa chops for a BBQ Bash near my home.

^^^Nick your my Hero^^^

You have to bring this on the first annual moab trip!!!!



But everyone's got it allllll wrooonnnngg!!!

HARDWOOD is the best grilling fire you'll ever try.

I've been doing it for years and refuse to go back to charcoal or gas.

GAS is for Jeep
Charcoal is for Power Plant

Hardwood is for savory, delictable, smoked fired meat!!!!!

Charcoal (or, even better, wood) for the flavour and the ritual (this gives me the opportunity to drink something while the fire is setting up).

Alligator and rattlesnake.

And Aso (dog) in the Philippines. And no, I didn't know it was that until after I had cooked and ate it. My housekeeper's husband had a weird sense of humor. It looked like pork, but had a gamey taste.

And I always use charcoal/wood. I have a nice gas grill, but I haven't used it in over 6 years. Can't get away from my Weber and cast iron smoker.
