Suckling Pig for a birthday barbeque
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...
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.
