Cooking A Suckling Pit

Suckling pigs are usually 10-25 pounds. Allow at least one pound of pork per person. So a 25 lb pig would be the absolute minimum needed for 25 people. A 24-inch barbecue unit will hold a 15 lb pig; a 30-inch unit will hold up to 25 lb. A larger animal will require cooking gear with greater capacity.
