one thing that will really help is use enough blocks so that the hog will be at least 20 inches above the coals. i am asuming that you are going to use coals under the hog. i have cooked a lot of hoggs on a block pit. i find that having the hog at least 20 inches above the coals it will help from getting the hog to hot. and help keep the flames down.also dont put to much coals under it. you will think that the heat is not coming up fast enough, but it will come up just find by adding a few shovel of coal under the head and shoulders, and the hams. if you cover the hog with tin or sheet metal it will hold the heat really good.when you get the hog cooking and the grease boiling out you will be glad that you have the 20 inches of space between the hog and coals.i hope this heips.
