    Hi all! I'm Steve, and just became a member. I appreciate all I've learned here. I bought Meathead's book and read it often. I grill burgers, dogs, chicken, and pork on my Weber grill, but I also cook whole pigs on a big grill Eastern NC style - I've done a dozen or more, and it seems there's something with every pig that doesn't go right. I'm looking for tips for whole pig cooking from those more experienced than I.
