Piglit Cook Time ?

Need some help guy's n gal's. I have to cook a 37 lb. piglet in the morning. How long should I figure on this taking to get done. Will be my first whole pig. Need advice. Thanks in advance. Cooking all night tonight and then the pigie in the morning. Going to be Wooped by tomorrow night for sure.

I would plan on 4 hours at 275.  Stick a temp guage in his ham and pull him off at 190-195ish.  With one that small, you may want to stuff the ribs so they dont dry out too much.

Temp probe!!

I would have to say put in a temp probe and see! as said 4 to 6 hours depending on cooking temps...  How did it turn out and how long did it actually take? Have only ever did 1 whole hog (at 95lbs) it took 9.5 hours.
Thanks

Cook Time Update

Red,

I smoked it at 250 for about 5 hours. Was at 140 in the ham when I took it off. The Frat boys didn't want it cooked all the way cause they were going to heat it up in an oven the next day. I saw pictures of it the next day on their Facebook page, wasn't much left. They said it was great. 4 more parties this year so I guess I'll have 4 more to do in the future.

I would be very careful about pulling a pig at 140 and trusting fratboys to bring the meat back up to a proper disease killing temp.  If it was cooked to 140 and then chilled, that sucker still had a considerable amout of cooking to be done the next day.  Much more so than a simple warm up.
