WHAT ABOUT A HOG ROAST FOR YOUR WEDDING?
The tradition of the hog roast goes back centuries, and possibly longer. There are many ways to roast pork, including open fire rotisserie style roasting, and "caja china" style box grilling. Many families traditionally have a pig roast for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
In Miami and other areas with large Cuban, Puerto Rican, or other Caribbean populations pig roasts are often held on Christmas Eve by families and friends whereas families from Hawaii often hold a roast on memorial day.
In the UK, the tradition of pig roasting, which is more commonly known in the UK as a Hog Roast, is fundamental to many occasions, particularly parties and celebrations and is becoming more popular for weddings.
It is usually an outdoor event, and a staple meal on many show events. The tradition is either to roast on a spit, turning the pig under a flame, or in a large oven in a roasting pan, roasting pigs over 200 lbs in weight is common in the UK.
The pig is roasted usually in cider and bay leaves, with salt rubbed in to the scored skin to make the 'crackling'.
