  1. There was a thread on this topic not long ago - about a Cuban place in Elizabeth I believe .

    1. re: arpad

      Yes, I did see that. I'm looking for one that can be done onsite in a backyard.

    2. google "pig roast nj"and several will come up. there is also a big operation out of staten island ---name has something to do with chuck wagon but is escaping my mind right now.

      1. I don't know if they go that far, but I have heard the pig roast is excellent from Rode's. You can always give them a call to see if they travel. I have had their pulled pork and it was excellent.

        1. Green Village Packing in Green Village does this (next town over from Madison).

          1. Depends on what you mean by pig roast. Lutz's Pork Store will rent out a smoker, and send guys over to run it, to do a German-style pig roast for you. If you want crispy Portuguese-style pig, check with the local Portuguese restaurants.

            1. You might be able to use them:


              A couple of locations throughout NJ, one of their locations is Leo's BBQ in South Plainfield which I've heard relatively good things about. They specialize in catering and I know they serve whole roasted big but I'm not sure if they do it on site.

              Or you can try:

              1. Check out Grub Hut in Manville.


                They'll do an onsite whole pig roast - see pg4 of their menu:


                Grub Hut
                307 N Main St, Manville, NJ 08835

                1. Not sure if you're interested in BBQ, but if so, contact Fink: http://www.finksfunky.net/

                  1. I saw a posting for Chuck's Wagon earlier today, which I no longer see in the thread; perhaps because it was posted by Chuck himself and it appeared self serving. However, I'll vouch for Chuck's, and I'm a regular (though sporadic) Chowhound contributor. I've been to bbq's where Chuck's did the cooking and they do a great job with both the food and service. http://www.chuckswagonbbq.com/

                      Fabulous Feast in Stockton, smokes a whole pig, he sells smoked brisket, smoked chicken, smoked ribs, smoked pork at the Stockton Market on Sat and Sun

                    2. Thanks for all the replies! This is great!
