You may find this recent experiment interesting if you need to roast a pig for a party a long trip away...

This pig was cooked largely by the heat of a rock. It is a 16 lb roaster pig that cooked for almost nine hours. A long slow cook over a low heat that produced a tender delicious meal for 34 people and a pack of wolves. The last five hours were heated just by the rock. You might ask, “why would Walter step back to the stone age to cook a pig? Is this some paleo diet thing?” Not at all!

Nice! Love the transportability.

Here in NZ it's traditional to use stones in the ground to cook food

Aye, I grew up pit cooking food but carrying a pit in our van was an interesting challenge...

MMMMMMMMMM, roast pig, Yum. Thanks for the "modern" method, I have always used a pit but I really like your method, we will have to give that a go.
