Pig roast in RI?

Bivalve88 Aug 10, 2007 01:22 PM

A friend of mine is thinking about having a pig roast to celebrate her 40th. I heard about someone in Richmond, RI that specializes in just such a thing, but know nothing about it and can't seem to find anything online. Does a 'hound out there have any info?

    Here's a link that I found recently. Please report back if your friend has the pig roast... I'm considering a birthday pig as well. http://www.petethebutcher.com/?gclid=...

      I think you're referring to a guy that has a place on 138 by Meadowbrook. I can you get the name and number

            None. I don't have any reason to think they're bad, though. I haven't seen their name in the local paper or anything like that.

          Do it yourself. Go to Central Meat on Gano St in Providence order a whole pig cut up the middle. (butterfly) I did, it was easy and fun!

            Friends of mine did it for a casual wedding reception in June and it was great, They came and cooked (at least finished cooking) the whole pig on site! It was the Golden Pig - I still have the card.... the guy was Chris Lavallee & the numbers are 401-475-8700 \ 401-527-1468

              Thanks, Trufflebaby! My friend is hosting her own 40th birthday party (she's nuts) but at least is willing to cater the food. I'll pass on the Golden Pig info and also Al&Sam's. Thanks, guys!
