49 lb shoat. I named her Babe. Cause my little girl asked me if it was Babe.
Babe in the brine. Brine= 2 cans of salt, 1 lb sugar, 1 lb of brown sugar, oranges, lemon juice, lime juice, and a bunch of rosemary and garlic.
Here Babe will chill until 5am Sunday.
At 5am Sunday, the morning after the Hornfrogs get squished, I will get Baby out the brine, stuff the inside with mushrooms, boudin, sausage, garlic and onions and sew her up. Then I will place her in this pit
Right here actually
and light this fire which consist of Kingsford charcoal, Red oak and cherry.
Then I will drink beer for 11 hrs as her internal temp rises to 160-165. When deemed perfect I will pull it, serve with a plethora of sides, then probably pass out in the 3rd round of our fantasy draft. I'll update with future pics of Babe.
