Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time:  45 minutes
Plate time: 2-3 minutes
1lb ground breakfast sausage
2 smoked sausages
1 thick slice of ham
1 can vienna sausages
1 package pork cracklins
1/2 lb bacon
Prepare grill for indirect cooking at 300-325 degrees.  Form ground sausage into an oval.  Slice smoked sausages in half and inset into the bottom of the ground sausage oval to create four legs.  Cut one Vienna sausage into an approximately 1.5 inch slice.  Insert the Vienna sausage in the center of one end of the oval, leaving 1/2 inch exposed to create a nose.  Wrap the “pig” in bacon leaving the legs and nose exposed.  Cut two small triangles from the ham and make two small incisions in the top front portion of the pig in which the ham can be inserted with the top point facing up and 1/2 of the triangle exposed to create ears.  Place the pig on the cool part of the grill, cover, and allow the pig to cook for approximately 45 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.  Remove and make a small incision in the back portion of the pig.  Insert one small curly pork cracklin in the incision to create a tail.  Serve immediately.
