    1. re: JoanN

      i had a half pig delivered to my rooftop for a birthday party.

      it was fantastic.

      absolutely incredible.

      my only regret was that people had too much to drink and were feeling lazy about packing up leftovers. i wish i had been able to gnaw on the bones the next day.

    2. I'm on for the half pig on September 23rd. Have about 8, should be the right number of people. I'm bringing a big bag for bones/head to make soup stock, and eventually congee. Wanted to go for the whole pig, but a lot of my friends are picky about the pork on Rosh Hashanah thing. I'll post with pictures soon afterwards.

      1. Can't wait for the "field review " of D M . The chef is all over food magazines. He is classically trained. ..have done 300 mile detours for BBQ .. Like Interstate in Memphis..
