Pig Spit Rental in NYC

I am hosting a pig roast in Brooklyn at the end of July. I have the pig and the pig roasting extraordinaire but I can't find a pig spit or grill for rent ANYWHERE. Can anyone point me in the right direction? The pig is 200 lbs.

  1. Did you ever find one? I'm planning a pig roast, too, and I'm also having trouble locating a spit (or La caja china) for rent.

          My stepfather is Cuban..lived in cuba 18 years. It's as normal to him as sunday gravy is to me ! :)
          I dont ask questions :)...I can get back to you on that but they do use wood. All i know is that pig marinated on my kitchen table overnight split right down from its neck to its groin.

    2. hey stllmitzy , did you ever find a place that rents out spits? Can anyone help?
