Suckling Pig for a birthday barbeque

Grifforama Jun 10, 2009 12:50 PM

I'm thinking of roasting a whole suckling pig for my birthday about a month away.
Does anyone know where I can buy a whole suckling pig ?
I have been given this website as a start - http://dartagnan.com and they appear to deliver, but I wanted to know if there was anywhere locally in Brooklyn that I could buy one ?
I would also need either to hire a proper pig roaster or somehow get an oil drum cut in two.
Has anyone else done this before ?http://www.chow.com/images/add_new_to...

    Check with Los Paisanos on smith street in cobble hill. I think that they have them.

      These previous topics are a bit Queens-centric, but might help you out:

      I cooked a 20lb suckling pig from Muncan in my normal-sized home oven last Thanksgiving.

        I supply some of NYC's finest, Per Se, Bouley, Payard and such. I have suckling pigs, Tamworth Boar and Berkshire Sows, pasture raised nor hormones, steroise or antibiotics. Born and bred on the farm so immunizations are not even required to keep them very healthy. As far as roasting, my kids recently bought me, for my birthday, a fire pit (Home Depot) to be used on the patio. I plan to buy a commercial, not too expensive, rotisserie which can stand over the pit and voila, a convenient pig, turkey, chicken, prime rib, goat, lamb and anything else roaster.

            dm - I think you'll need to put a way to contact you in your profile. Suggestion: Use "at" instead of @, and leave off the dot com. Both help with spam.
