Video Easy Smoked Piglet

Video Easy Smoked Piglet, we did a 35-pound piglet on the Green Mountain Grill this week. I have to say I was surprised at just how easy it was to do. In fact, the hardest part of the whole process was getting the pig here in Southern California. Like trying to find Tri-Tip in South Carolina, you can do it, but it’s an adventure!!!

I did find a few HIGH-END meats shops that wanted $7.99 and a 2-hour drive. That would be $279 for a 35-pound pig! It would’ve been cheaper to buy all the parts and do a “Franken Pig”.

So, I went right to the processor, I found Durazo Pork, $125 for a 35-pound pig. That’s $3.57 a pound!!! To top that off I could get it frozen or fresh and it was clean and ready to go on to the grill!!!

I didn’t have to do anything with it but season it.

Our thanks to David of Butchers BBQ. I talked with him about doing a pig and he sent me his championship winning pork injection and his signature blend Longhorn Dust with a mixing bottle and injector.

We did an 8-hour smoke at 245* (118c) for an internal temperature of 190* (88c) for a tender and juicy little pig.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What you Love,
Ken & Patti
