Default Wild Hog

My son brought over two hind quarters from a wild pig he shot last fall. I smoked them on the Akorn. I put rub on one and nothing but apple juice on the other. They turned out great. I did two fatties for some friends as well.

Paymaster how do you like the Akorn Smoker? And what's the deal with the smoke stone? My smoker is on it's last legs I did a batch of trout the other night and realized I can't patch any more holes! Us it durable and how is it on rust ? Looks pretty solid is the metal thick? Just want to pick your brain a little!

Looks a nice feed you have cooked I've already eaten however it makes me feel Hungry again as I also like Wild Pork when The Wheat Harvest is on especially the Legs & The Back Straps done in The Camp Oven.
Sometimes if there's a few of we might Roast The whole Pig on a Spit.
We also usually have a couple of weeks away each year chasing Wild Pork to fill our Freezers.
We were always going to build a Smoker as we have no shortage of Australian Hardwoods which are really good for smoking nearly any type of meat.

I love mine. Once you get one and figure out how to set the vents to cook the way you want, you will too, I bet. As to the stone. Inside thye Akorn is a bracket that a heat deffuser would fit on. Heat defussers protect the meat in a low and slow cook from burning from the heat of sitting directly over the coals. I use a weber grill grate, and a 15" aluminum pie pan from Hobby Lobby. I put an inch or so of sand in the pan and cover the pan with foil and set it upon the weber rack. This accomplished a few things. I catches drippings from the meat, and the sand helps maintain a constant temp( heat sink ) and the whole thing deffuses the heat. The Akorn is very well built and is made of insulated steel.
