We're Roasting a Pig

melly Aug 20, 2008 01:39 PM

My husband got a La Caja China roaster and we are going to roast a 64 lb pig in it. It will be a party for sure. I think we'll do it Cuban style. We will be doing this the 3rd weekend of September.

Anyone ever use one of these before? Ideas for side dishes?

    We have one did a pig in it a few weeks ago it was outstanding. I sort of made it a southern theme. We live in Dallas I did tomato mozz and fresh basil salad. I did a salad called overnight salad because I could make it the night befor. I did cheese grits and blak-eyed peas. I did homemade Biscuits with apple butter sliced water melon and apricot fried pies for desert. We had 50 guest our pig weight 60 lbs and it was devoured. I also had some barbequed chicken thighs.
