Backwoods Smoker - The Piglet

The Backwoods Piglet is basically two party units that have been joined side by side.   It features a unique door system which flips up on two pneumatic pumps.   The Piglet was born out of the need for customers who are cooking whole pork shoulders or even small whole hogs. 

The Piglet comes with 3 racks, which are made of expanded metal.   Double the capacity of the party unit, and you have the Piglet.
