2nd Annual Pig Roast
Dave’s family from New Jersey joined us this week for our 2nd pig roast.
Last week we barely made it through the mud, but we loaded up the chosen pig and hauled her off to the butcher.
She came back hairless and gutted. We did the rest.
Dave and Andrew broke open the pig along its spine.
For the marinade, we used lots of salt, garlic, lemon, lime and orange juice. Mom and Leah were the garlic peelers.
Dave welded a rack and built a roaster.
Dad and Amos helped Dave secure the pig and wrap the ears.
Dad kept his eye on the fire and rotated the pig when needed.
Charred on the outside and deliciously tender on the inside. What a satisfying feast.
Of course the company was lovely too. Dave’s family camped out (well, most of them).
And we had a few fun activities…upstate style.
Looking forward to next year’s roast already.
