My friend Jeff invited me to a whole roast pig BBQ a few weeks ago and I gladly accepted as I have never seen a whole pig barbecued before outside of a commercial establishment. Jeff, having hosted a roast pig BBQ for 18 years, was clearly an expert in the method of whole pig BBQ. He even built the huge custom BBQ used for the occasion.

The pig is brought at a local market and slow roasted for 18 hours. the pig is wrapped in chicken wire so it doesn’t fall apart as it cooks. In the early morning hours before the party, I got an email from Jeff expressing some consternation that it was raining on his BBQ. But not to worry as the end product was excellent! The pig was roasted to perfection; the meat was moist and extremely tasty. The pork was carefully hand pulled by Jeff’s able assistants. One of the best BBQ pork meals I’ve ever had.
