    Step 1. persuade a "ricky chen" to catch a "cahill"
    step 2. Glaze the "cahill"
    step 3. insert apple
    step 4. roast on hot coals for a few hours
    step 5. enjoy.

    Sounds like it may leave a bad taste in the mouth

    Wood. Dry kanuka if you have it
    Huge fire and cook when its coals.
    Keep adding to the side and shovel in wjen smoke dies down
    Keep it simple
    Warratahs and chain so you can adjust
    Pipe amd crank type offset handle
    Manual only and a bloody long pipe because it does get hot standing there turning it a little bit every now and then
    Beer is the best fuel for the turning device
    Form an orderly queue to take turns at turning
    Wire the pig on well with a few holes through the pipe because it gets bloody slippery when the far starts to flow.

    Timing is tricky
    Do one as practice would be my advice

    Wish i was there !

    a small pig will cook much quicker than a big pig
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Made a spit with long galv pipe suspended on x2 ‘Y’shaped sticks and electric powered vis two washing machine gearboxes back to back. Did roughly one rpm. Easy method is long Manuka pole through pig, suspend on two ‘Y’ sticks and have a couple of other sticks (like a steering wheel without circumference) fitted through main shaft. You can then rotate pig with enough friction to hold animal in most positions. As suggested, it will need a huge amount of hot coals. It will also take almost all day. Get your cooking coals sorted (a good bath tub sized lot) but keep another fire going in a drum with coarse grate bottom so replacement coals fall through ready to replenish cooking lot. You will need more fuel than you think.

    Yeahhh.... soon as I saw the title I was transported back 33 years to memories of the Gilwell Gripper. Nuff said.

    You’re welcome to borrow my spit if someone can get it across to strait. I use Manuka and have a couple of bags of charcoal available just in case. I’ve not done a pig yet but have done a couple of sheep and heaps of chooks. I don’t bother with and basting because I like the Smokey flavour.Name:  0B2AAC31-547E-4C88-A16A-089CBAC3C0DF.jpeg

    Id prefer to eat that pig that indian family ate a while back, coma would be nice right now. I would be happily shooting my guns in a coma while you guys are still suffering in reality.
