Roast Pig in Asheville NC

catsailor May 5, 2011 12:03 PM

I'm looking for a whole roast pig for a party. In the past I've done them myself, but I'm getting to old and lazy to dig a pit, get up early and watch the fire all day long. So does anybody know someone or some company that can help me out?

    Hello I saw your post and thought I would reach out. I am planning a Whole Pig Roasting Party for my sister's wedding reception in November down there in Asheville. I have never done this before and am staring from scratch in figuring out how best to do this. I was curious if you had luck with your Pig Roast and if you would be so kind as to offer me any advice and/or direction. Many many thanks

          That's me. But "Earl" was only about 15 bs. LCC is great for 30-70lbs.

        Buy a "la caja china" it will cook it in 4 hours. I love them and have done 20+ in my cooker. Best deal out there for $300.

          Where would I find this? You talking about a suckling pig?

            Here's more about La Caja China or Chinese Box on the Cookware board.

              They are great. I also cook chickens (17 at a time) or turkeys (6 at a time) I also do Pork Butts (6 at a time) It is fast and easy with a very good product.
