I second the ease of the box. I think you can rent them, too. Here's what mine looked like
that a friend lent me that he built. There's a tray lid that you put the coals on and you can chuck aromatics inside with the swine.
I have to say, I must've done something wrong because my pig was kinda just blah. I preferred how pork comes out on the smoker or sauced. I'm sure it's just my fault, but a whole pig just seemed like so much pulled pork that hasn't had anything put in it.
Be sure you have plenty of people on hand to help you eat it.
