Pig Roast

Some celebrations, you just don’t miss….

good food

The annual pig roast at my best friend’s house is one of them. It’s a weekend of camping, bonfires, sitting in lawn chairs, visiting with friends, watching the children wear themselves out, and eating great food.

This year, we went early enough to see the roasting of the pig.

They are serious about roasting the pig. They built this rather perfect pit by dry-stacking some concrete blocks.

Just add charcoal….

Boy, that looks like a hot job, turning the pork on those racks. The metal grill on each side is wired together, so no worries about dropping the meat.

Does this make your mouth water?

And the pulling of the pork begins.

And you know… If you stand by long enough taking pictures, they will probably offer to let you do a taste test. And it will taste wonderful.

With the pork out of the way, on goes the chicken. I wish you could have smelled that chicken cooking.

  1. Oh Yum! Looks like a wonderful time!!!

    Occasionally Hubby's uncle rents a rotisserie and buys a pig.. The sucker turns (with a motor!) in it all night, and by lunch or dinner or whenever, it's done. It's not a HUGE pig, by any means, but it is nearly WHOLE. :P Tasty though. :)


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. Comments make me so happy that I dance around the room! ;)
