Sent by JulieEditor: I've never roasted a whole pig myself, but I've been to a few pig roasts! My best advice would be to find someone who's done it before to be there with you and help you through it. From what I hear, roasting a whole pig is unlike any other cooking that we're used to doing, and it helps to have an expert on hand.
Readers, have you ever thrown a pig roast? What advice do you have?
