Whole Hog Roast,Philippine style-Pron heavy!
This cookout was a week ago at our house in the Phillipines. Enjoy!!
Lechon (BBQ) Baboy (pig)
We sent over $350 for a quadruple birthday party. They bought a $110 piggy, a $115 camera and the rest of the money went into Tuba (homemade wine, described later), San Miguel (beer) and sides.
This is my brother-in-law, Marlon. He's the Pit Master for this cookout!
I told them to name the pig and I was informed that they "don't name their food!"
They boiled a pot of water to de-hair the piggy
Bamboo enema. They are surounded by jungle so coconuts and bamboo are everywhere.
Coconut shells for fuel
Now thats food pron!
Poncit. (rice noodles, cabbage, carrots, yard long green beans, Soy sauce, veggie oil)
Menudo. (potatoes, carrots, red pepper, garlic, pork)
Chicken Curry (chicken, potatoes, carrots, red pepper, curry powder)
Dinuguan (intestines, blood, peppers)
the two gallon jugs are Tuba. They climb coconut trees and spike into the coconuts and add the ingredients. they then plug the hole and let it ferment in the tree. they then pick the coconut and drain the tuba. you have to have your own container and you go and get it filled. Because of that, there was no way to take any home on my visits. It tastes like apple wine and has a pretty good kick. Poor mans moonshine.
I just noticed the fly trying out the birthday cake! I tried to flick it off my screen!
Whoever got the cake left off Bulakak's name. there were 4 birthdays this month. Mary has has 4 brothers and 6 sisters and a bunch of nieces and nephews.
Plated up! (family pics)
The picture taker, Melody. My sister-in-law. (in college for "Hotel, Restaurant Management")
The Kitchen. they have mud/dirt boxes on the wood counter and they make a fire using all those sticks, then place 3 rocks to hold pots and pans. They sell food out in front on the street and cook everything here.
WoW! What a cool post! Lots of information to think about, especially the tuba. :becky: That is one beautiful family and celebration. Thanks so much for posting.
Now that's a feast and a party! Great pix - thanks for putting those up! :clap2:
Man you weren't kidding, that is some serious pron! Interesting how it doesn't look like there's much in the way of coals from the coconut shells, but they obviously generate some heat if they're able to cook through that whole pig. I feel like I gained culinary and cultural knowledge at the same time :-D
Thanks for posting. That was really interesting.
What sort of seasoning is used for the roast pig?
I told Allen the people on this site were awesome and would appreciate his cook! He PM'd me a link so I already got to see it, very nice job indeed!
