Pigs are among my favorite animals…

…they are very tasty 😉

We had neighborhood party this afternoon…my house, our next door neighbors, and one other neighbor. A pig, a keg, some wine, and a potluck. A beautiful fall afternoon.

Every good southern boy needs to know how to cook a pig, and I was very pleased with how this one came out. Very moist, juicy, and not at all overdone. About 7 hours at 275 degrees for a 77 pound pig. My barbecue sauce is a simple mix of vinegar, brown sugar and red pepper. Rub the pig in salt, lather in sauce, and cook.

The keg was Octoberfest from Carolina Brewery. Very nice.
