HOW TO COOK A SUCKLING PIG
You can use your grill, oven or smoker. Either way it will be delicious. Here is how:
Suckling pig doesn't need to be marinated. Just soak it in water and salt for 24 hours... but even that is not required. Coarse salt is enough.
Place your suckling pig on a tray with a couple fingers of water on the tray and some potatoes (the potatoes will be your side... an they will be outstanding)
Pre-head your oven/grill/smoker to 220-240°F.
Cook the pork slow and low for 2-4 hours, it will be ready when the meat is intense white... we recommend using a thermometer, 160°F. is the ideal temp.
Pierce the skin with a fork (you want tiny holes).
When the center hits 160°F crank up the head to 400°F for another 20 minutes but keep an eye on it, we do not want it burned.
You want that skin crispy!
***(Optional: Before cranking it up to 400°F use a brush to put some butter.. it will make the skin shiny.)
***If you do not want the ears/tail to burn, you can wrap them in aluminum foil.
