Large Pig Cookers


     Our Large cooker comes with dual gas burners inside, that gives you a cooking temperature range of 275 degrees to 550 degrees.  For lower temperatures you can use one burner.  Due to how tight our cookers are built you can cook at higher temperatures without drying out your foods.  The Large cooker is also equipped with safety shut-off devises on the inside burners, with easy to read lighting instructions.  The most common optional features added to the large cooker are the dual rear pot burners and the turning grates.  The turning grates are designed to hold between a 65lb. to 180lb. pig. Using a outside handle you can flip a pig with just one hand. This option is only available on the Large Model.
