Large rotisserie rental for 150 pound whole pig?

Can anyone recommend a source to rent one of these, preferably in the Arlington/Lexington/Waltham/Woburn area? I have had bad luck in the past using an under-sized rotisserie (the motor couldn't handle the weight of the pig), so I am looking for a large one this time. I don't care if the grill portion underneath in charcoal or gas. I have tried Taylor Rental in Arlington, and their units don't seem quite large enough. Thanks for any help.

      Unless OP edited their post... I think you missed something - " I have tried Taylor Rental in Arlington, and their units don't seem quite large enough"

        Didn't see that part earlier.

        My sister's husband rented one from them this past weekend for a 40 lb. dressed lamb and it was large enough to almost have two lambs on it

    2. Wouldn't the pig guy have a source to recommend? Or are you hunting wild boar?

      1. The Greek church in Arlington does whole pigs and lambs on rotisseries for their Greek festival. It might be worth calling to see where they rent them, or if they own them whether they'd rent one to you.

        1. Have you tried the BBQ barn in Arlington?

          Very good people in my experience.

          If they don't rent they might suggest a source.

          1. I recommend you phone Andy Husbands at Tremont 647 in the late afternoon of a weekday. Also the nice guys who own Blue Ribbon BBQ in Arlington.
