    Oh man, a pig roast!!!  Now you guys are talking.  I wouldn't even bring my smoker, I'd just make the beans and bring them, a couple of sauces, and money to chip in on everything.

    Not looking burst any bubbles as pig roasts are spectacular to see and attend...But how many folks planning to come have had a pig roast??? I did 110 pound Hog for my oldest girls 1st Bday. 50 people stuffed themselves and there was A LOT of leftover pork. We are up to maybe 14-16 people and currently looking at multiple meats at each meal. We would have to do just a pig on Saturday, or try to get a tiny 20lb Suckling Pig, can be a challenge in the fall, and make only a few other meats, or skip the pig to get hands and mouths on more of a variety. Whole hog is a once or twice in a lifetime cook for most. But sausage, bacon, brisket, fatties and the like are made monthly. If between now and September, this turns into a much larger group, a pig roast becomes a great option to feed a crowd. Just something to consider this early on...JJ

    For sure a pig would be a lot of meat for the small group we have at this time even including Adams neighbors ( that's how you have a successful party you invite the neighbors)  [​IMG]

    It would be fun to see how different ones prepare what the do and for sure if CB comes we are going to have to make some kind of sausage.

    Having done many pigs. IMO its is better to cook individual cuts of meat seperatley. When you cook whole hog your just getting pork cooked the same way...... Ribs will be mush and everything will taste the same.

    Dont get me wrong, its fun to do and people like it, but its not the best way to go

    My 2 cents

    Yup have to agree it just basically taste like pork not the flavor you get when you rub and smoke single pieces.
