Some pics from a Pig Roast I went to yesterday...

Friends/Local Restaurant Owners threw a pig roast yesterday at a farm in an old barn that was relocated from Canada to NJ.

Hey how did that pig turn out?  Was the skin crispy?

post #3 of 21

What a terrific party, I love the pictures of the refreshing drinks leading up to the food. The roasted pig looks like it came out just perrrfect. So you said in your blog that you ate the cheek ? I have never eaten that part.

My dad did a roast awhile back , I am hoping to do one this year to.

The barn has to be one of the nicest ones I have seen. An Irish band ? wow....love that fiddle.

Can you tell me what they call the metal brackets that encase or flatten the pig ?

 

Just great pictures, glad you had a great time.

Yep, cheek/jowl, whatever you want to call it.  The drinks were great, the owner of the restaurant/bar knows his stuff when it comes to cocktails, and his bar is one of the top in the country.

 

He is Irish, hence the Irish Band.  The bar, was pretty awesome, wine cellar underneath, balcony with walkways overhead, perfect.

 

No clue on the metal brackets, I'd assume it came with the roaster they used (La Caja China)

It was! Turned out well. They injected it with a few things, I'm not sure of, but I believe BBQ sauce.

Those are great pictures!  The barn is beautiful and I love the pictures of the drinks and food. 

 

I haven't been to a pig roast in a few years.  The last one we were at was for our nephew because he was leaving to go out west to do firefighter training. 

OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??

Wonderful photographs.

Great to see you posting again. Cocktails do look tasty as does the buffet spread.

 

A neighbor of mine roasted a piggy in a La Caja China and called me to do the butchering. Those braces help you pull the pig out in one piece.

 

What is to the left of the watermelon? Simply sliced peaches, or roasted stone fruit dusted with 10X?

Grilled peaches from the farm.

In short, or rather, in a nutshell, I took a new less boring, more involved day job, as well as I got suckered into doing this Triathlon thing...my meals have been repeats and nothing exciting to post about really.

 

Things are starting to settle down a bit now.

Hope to see your pics here more often then.

This looks like a great party!  The former owners of our local saloon did a pig roast/pot luck dinner every summer.  They roasted the pig in a pit, guests brought the side dishes & paid only for their beverages.  I never cared much for the meat...but the rest of the food was always wonderful...we have a lot of good cooks in this valley!  Everyone was welcome, even if they didn't bring a side dish.  It was the bar owner's way of saying thanks to all her loyal patrons. She also hosted similar Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. 

 

The new owners don't do any of this.  Too bad.  Events like this help to bring the community together.  I'm glad your friends did this.  Was it a one-time thing,  or will they make it a regular event?

I don't think I ever saw Chefs in action other than on the Food Channel.  Very impressive.

 

Seeing what Chef's cook at home would be an interesting topic for another thread

?!  Lots of places have open kitchens.  Enjoy the show!

It happens. 

 

When I cooked in a restaurant, I lived by myself and kept it pretty simple around the house unless there was a scheme and a woman. When I caterered, we ate leftovers, ate simply, ate out (a lot), or were throwing our own parties. 

 

After regaining my amateur status, home cooking became more interesting.

I think my home cooking has become more interesting because of you and the other professionals on this forum who share, so generously, their knowledge and skills.

Now look here RPM, you have got me drooling with those pics.  Great to see them - they look wonderful.

 

Congrats on the new job and good luck with the triathlon.  That's a heck of a commitment.  Go the carbs and proteins :)  and lots of water.
