Can't help you with your problem, but I can tell you that you chose the best piece to cook, suckling pig is the bees knees.

Yup. I got half a pig here on mine, about the 30 lb range (just missing the hind leg) Had I kept it whole, you can see there's plenty space. Have fun with it!

Yuppers. Half from north to south, down the spine. It shrunk up a bit, it initially took up about half the cook chamber. Pig weight whole was 30-35 lbs.
