Barbecue is becoming more and more popular for entertaining. This article in the Akron Beacon Journal discusses the trend and has some interesting recipes for bbq rub, bbq sauce and an interesting mixed beans side dish.
Here is another article and web site that provides interesting tidbits about using a Chinese Cooking Box , or a Cajun Microwave to cook a whole hog. And...here's another box alternative from the "La Caja China" web site.
One of the most popular destinations on the Internet regarding whole hog cooking is the Three Men web site.
I also came across another idea for making a portable hog cooker designed by Hubert Scallan from Louisiana.
So you see....there really is more than one way to skin a pig, ooops...I mean "skin a cat".
