    I love outdoor cooking. If we have the Pig brought in, it would just give me more time to cook up a fancier dessert. So I am good either way.

    We are leaning toward having a whole pig brought in already roasted...served right off the bone. We are still working out the details to know for sure. ZQ

The pig would arrive intact and meat taken off bone as served. The butts would be delivered ready to eat. I need to do some PMing about the cost. I will post findings later.

    I do like the idea of less work for us....having someone do the work and we enjoy, is definitely a plus. Cost will be the deciding factor.

    Agree..disagree..anyone??

    I have been to some of these events they roast the pig off site and bring it on-site in the roaster. They usually take care of prepping, serving and such...if the cost is reasonable my vote is to go for it.
    see you on the trail,

    I'm making a large smoker so I can do a whole hog if I want, but I don't think it will be done in time. Best bet is to have someone bring it it.

    For a whole hog, planning to eat around 6ish Saturday night, you would have to get it on and started early morning. See charts below for cooking times/resources needed.

    ...ZQ here...We have decided to have a roasted pig brought to the pavilion for Saturday's supper, ready to serve off the bone. Having it roasted off site reduces the cost.

    We will not be cooking the beef hamburgers. We will be cooking the veggie burgers. We will be cooking beef Kosher hotdogs for the children and anyone that doesn't want the pork.

    As soon as I get a chance, I am going to start a new Official planning thread with the MAHHA details. When I do, this thread will be closed.

    Sounds awesome! Can we also start a thread for planning a pre or post hang hike? I know a couple folks did this last year and I wanted to be a part of it this year.

    Can't wait for the hang and some yummy BBQ!!!

    Someone can start a pre/post hike thread....but not me...I don't do overnight hikes! Tim will be doing a pre hike. In full discloser...I don't sleep in a hammock...Tim does...For 20+ years, I have been in a tent on an air mattress...this past July, we finally were able to purchase a pop-up camper...that is where I sleep now. My perspective has been elevated...just not in a hammock! ZQ

    One thing to add-

    Find out how they prepare the meat, in an oven or over a charcoal pit. I've had both and charcoal rules!
