Pig Roast

I'm looking for someone (restaurant, caterer or independent) to do a pig roast for a party at my home in Northern, VA. I don't need anything but the cooked pig. Any suggestions? I saw an earlier thread but it's a few years old.

  1. I happened to see this on the Green Pig Bistro website, but I have not eaten there so hopefully someone has some experience:

    and here is a CH thread on the Bistro

      Thanks! I've actually been there for dinner and the food was great. I never thought of checking to see if they did pig roasts.

    2. I cook for a frat at UMD, every fall they order a whole grilled pig from a farmer near Annapolis. He delivers it cooked on a grill, and either leaves the grill to be picked up later, or I break it down and bring it into the kitchen. Convenience is the over riding factor. I'm certain you'll find the same opportunity in NoVa.

      1. Id check out Big Mooks in nova. They might be able to help you out.

        1. I was reading the menu at Rocklands while waiting for my sandwich and I noticed that they do whole pig roasts. The price varies by weight of the pig, smaller ones being more expensive per pound.

          From their on-line catering menu:
          ROCKLANDS is famous for its wonder-ful whole smoked pigs that are guaranteed to make any event a success. Your pig is displayed whole (head to tail!) on a decorated
          board. Pigs are available up to 120 pounds.
          Carving available upon request.
          Allow approximately one pound per person

          1. We ended up using Green Pig Bistro for our event. The pig was amazing and the staff was so professional and friendly. I highly recommended them to anyone looking to do a pig roast!!
