Advice for Hosting a Pig Roast?

Recipe Questions

Q: My husband and I are interested in hosting a pig roast at our house. We've thrown a lot of parties, but never one of this magnitude and certainly never one that entailed an entire pig. Do you have any recipes, tips or advice?

Editor: 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?
