The latest way I have seen to roast the pig and perhaps the easiest is to buy a box like this
Of course, first you must buy a pig that has already been slaughtered. The people doing this pig roast went to Wilcox, AZ to get this pig. The roast was done for our pastor, Fr. Ariel Lustan, on his recent 46th birthday.
The birthday pig was put in at 7:30am and it was done by 12:50pm.Before 7:30am it was filled with spices, banana leaves,onions and other items I wasn't quite sure what they were.
Here is a picture of the pig fully roasted.
|Carefully lifting the roasted pig out.|
|What a pretty face. It looks shocked!|
|Eager to cut into Mr. Pig!|
|It was flipped over to show the charred side, which are the banana leaves holding in the spices, onions and other things I couldn't identify. Notice the tail is still intact. It is a tasty part of the pig that is chewed on and enjoyed.|
|The main chef gets the tail!|
|All help to carve it up and sample it as the process goes along.|
The meal followed with all kinds of Filipino dishes to go with Mr. Pig. A great feast for a birthday!
