Each summer since 2012, we have invited Dave’s family up for a pig roast. All but the the aged, pregnant, infant or wimpy camp out. The eight cousins all 9 and younger enjoy getting filthy, shooting arrows and guns and eating all the desserts Grandmom brings. The adults get hungrier and hungrier as the pig roasts. Dave did a great job bringing the pig to a perfect golden brown with crispy skin.
We dropped our pig off to be slaughtered and returned with skin on and picked him up on Thursday.
We roasted skin side down first. See all the marinade in the cavity?
