We all love to spend time with family and friends. The common way of doing this is to have a Sunday barbecue in the backyard of your home.
If you enjoy spending time this way you can from time to time get rid of the standard hot dogs and burgers and try something new for your barbecue. Even though it will take some work and some planning and a bit of effort on your side, trying a whole pig spit roasts would change the whole meaning of a barbecue. You and all those who come over to your house will have a wonderful time with this change.
A Spitroast or a hog roast are other terms that it is called. However, if you do not have the required equipment, you can rent them out at a local barbecue supply shop. If you have a special event coming up, be it a birthday party, an anniversary or any other festival that you celebrate you can go the extra mile and prepare a spit roast.
There are a few benefits of doing a pig roast for an occasion.
Firstly, a pig roast can feed many people. It will depend on the size of the pig you buy but in general terms a small pig can feed 15 people at least. So you do not need to prepare too many dishes and slog over the grill all the time.
Secondly, the pig needs to be put to roast quite some hours before the party or celebration. This is because the pig will roast and cook slowly in its juices. It brings out great tastes and will have your guests mouths watering. Also, by starting the process early, you do not have to be occupied with cooking when your guests arrive. You can enjoy their company and mingle.
Thirdly, Your guests can go up and serve themselves by carving away the size and pieces they wish. There is no need to serve everyone. Enjoy a great pig roast the way people did in the past and you will see its great appeal.
