A Few of the 55 steps we take to create your Competition Grade Pig Roast.......

Our pigs are raised on small Amish farms in Lancaster County Pennsylvania.

We are very proud of our Pasture Raised Pigs! Our pigs are naturally raised without the use of antibiotics or steroids. Pasture raised pork costs more because it puts the pigs welfare first. Low stressed pigs just make more sense. We order only fully dressed FRESH pigs, not less costly frozen ones. The pigs arrive to us, fully dressed , chilled, &  USDA government inspected.

It takes 3-4 hours just to prepare one of our pigs for smoking. We inject gallons of our "Secret Cider Brine" into the meat, a time consuming step skipped by most caterers.  We score and season the skin along the flanks to produce a crispy Peppered Pork Belly Bacon (see our pig pics). We rub the inside with our homemade Love Rub seasoning. We rub the outside with extra virgin Olive Oil. Kosher Salt & Fresh Ground Black Pepper. We use only locally sourced, hand harvested Apple wood for smoking. We start smoking your pig 24-36 hours before your event. Our unique custom indirect heat smokers are designed to slowly smoke and cook your pig at 185 to 225 degrees.  Smoking at this low temp prevents the pig from drying out and getting tough.

Only when your pig is fully cooked, determined by a high tech digital thermometer is it ready to serve. But not before decorating, this is where we have a little creative fun, so please try to challenge us with a theme!

For most weddings and indoor events we usually bring your Pig Roast to a prepared buffet table (this is great for your guests). After 25 plus years of catering Pig Roast events we are still amazed on how excited people get the first time they see a Whole Roast Pig! Your guests will ask the Chef questions, take pictures & pose (this step saves time during serving) Next come a Flying Pig Roast exclusive, the "Ceremonial First Cut".  For a wedding it mimics a cake cutting ceremony, that is if the cake was made of bacon! The couple will hold the knife together and make a simple cut, each take out a small piece of tender pork and feed each other, a very fun and often funny photo and video opt! Kissing the pig is another popular request done on birthdays.

Now we are ready to serve your Pig Roast. Your guests will quickly work their way through your buffet. When they get to the pig one of our expert Chef Carvers will give your guest a variety of the 4 main food groups... shoulder BUTT, LOIN, HAM and everyone favorite the Belly BACON! After serving the pig can be left for self serve seconds (and thirds) Or we can break down the pig for you. Call today to see if your date is open! PigFirstCut/juicypigbank.jpg 315-703-3030
