Is it nice at a garden party?

Or is it over rated/messy/boring/smelly?

Top Tip. A whole pig is too much for one person to eat. Just incase like.

You can't beat a good spit roast. Don't know about pig though....
And yes it can get very messy, so I've heard :wink

1 Whole Hog Roast (approx. 60kg Hog) £369.00 feeds 120-150 though that depends on who is eating.

You're on good form today. You know when you left for good, how did you re-emerge, I missed it ?

Yes! - It's fantastic!

Make sure you have loads of really nice soft rolls, loads of apple sauce and stuffing to go with it.

maybe even loads of little roast spuds.

.....and ignore all the stupids answers!!

I just wandered back. Everywhere else had too high standards.

He left for good because it was getting boring, although it did seem to get less boring when he left. I'll let you drawn your own conclusions

Ah cheers Bear. I'm really tempted to get it ordered - it'd be loads better than soggy sausage rolls and all that rubbish.

I've found a very cool website that does the whole shabbang - the roast, crackling, stuffing, apple sauce, baps, salads etc. It sounds so tastey!!

Maybe if he learned how to use his quotes properly, the confusion would go :rolleyes:

You'll need big baps for something that size.

Huh, that can satisfy Threaded for a couple of meals.

Went to a friends garden party in the summer where hogroast.com (or something similar) were doing the catering... must admit it was yummy nosh with apple sauce on soft baps.

No idea how much it cost but it didn't seem to go very far - i.e. no seconds ! so may need two pigs dependant upon the number of guests

yeah, check with em how many guests you'll serve with each hog.. last party with a hogroast i attended had piles left over.. there were at least 40 guests, including kids..

was nice though, looks quite flash and gives a sort of "feast" atmosphere to the catering! (whole pig roasting on the spit like at a kings banquet)

I had a look at their site and I see that they do spit roast chickens too. You should probably get some of those for the vegetarians.

Lamb would be my choice but probably doesn't feed as many people.

I like the thinking, but chicken is generally not regarded as a vegetable. For the record, nor is a fish.

Nice, but you need to book well in advance if you're going to do this at a busy time. I tried to get one a couple of years back for my parents anniversary party, but couldn't get anything sorted a month in advance.

Back in the 80s I used to occasionally have lunch at a pub whose menu listed:

Vegetarian Special
Lettuce (when available) £15
