Smoked Pig Tips

Yes, I broke down and got my hands on a little squealer to give as the gift to the family member getting the smoker. I also got him a good probe thermometer, some chips, and some other little stocking stuffers. (Thanks @imwalkin for the idea of the pig). It's about 17.2 lbs, frozen, and whole. Any tips I can give him for smoking it? I'm not a smoker expert...rubs? temps? basting? Anything you can give me would be appreciated.
