Pig on the coals!
« on: May 06, 2013, 03:49:07 PM »
Well I had 2 Boston butts and an empty fire pit Saturday morning. Forgot to photo the hog...I cleaned out the pit. Had my usual war bag and daypack



Had intended to use flint/steel but we had a real steady breeze and I struggled to catch a good ember. Had a fire going with the ferro rod in a jiffy






Not a great pic but I changed my user (woodlore clones) from a 1/8th scandi to a 5/32 convex. Both are Redneck kits that I assembled myself. I'm enjoying the fashion change thus far. I appreciate Steve's handy work too, A little Ron thrown in as well.



Put a nice spicy rub on the pig and wrapped them up real good. Used some nice slates to get me a good little cooking surface. Kept it snuggled to the coals for about 7 hours.
 


Worked really good and was fun to tender the fire for a day.



Got to use the axe a lot. It's a husky I got from Outdoorsenvy in a trade and I like it. ODE's a cool dude.



Got to use my cleaver too. Don't get to very often it seems. It was a pleasure. :)



Should have taken some more entertaining pics along the way. It was really fun way to while the day. I was rewarded with this fine platter of bbq for my efforts.



Not all that bushcrafty but thought I'd try to whet you alls appetite a little

Looks great.  Pigs were made tasty for a reason.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

Looking tasty, now did you sauce it sweet tomato, mustard or vinegar?
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.
