Roast Pig in Asheville NC

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?

  1. 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.

      2. 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

              If you want to borrow my LCC let me know. You can google me for Greenville SC

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