Take-out / delivery of whole roast pig in Manhattan?
As some of you may know, out in the burbs you can get a bbq specialist to tow his mobile smoker/grill to your home and cater a full BBQ feast (with assorted fixin's). Its a great party.
Doesn't seem logistically possible to do this for our apartment downtown (high likelihood of a smoker/grill getting towed!) As an alternative, does anyone have ideas on how to procure a whole or half roast pig? I can drive to pick it up.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Daisy May's has the Big Pig Gig menu which has a whole pig option. Its usually eaten there but maybe they'll deliver it. I know they have a truck to make regular deliveries so they may be able to deliver the whole pig. Can't imagine they'd set up a rig and a smoker though.
Not quite the barbecue style you're looking for, but I think a few of the chinatown places will sell you a whole roast pig. I seem to remember a price of $175 for some reason, but search the board. Big Wong King roasts as good pork as I've ever had.
