Doing one this weekend for our wedding tommorow. Sounded really fun, so I'm going to give it a try. Rubbing it down,stuffing with Gala apples,rosemary and cinnamon sticks, using a mop sauce and rootbeer bbq sauce. A keg of Three Floyds X(10%), small keg of Brugge Witte, case of Champagne, 6L of Cambria P.N.(for the masses) and multiple mags of good wine....even if the pork doesn't turn out, it sounds like a good time!

I have a friend that is helping with the mopping, but the rest is all me. Also have about 10lbs of chicken wings(3 different rubs) that are going on as well for the reception. One of the great things about having the wedding at our house...close to my food and wine! Big Grin
