Default Third Annual Pig Roast 2011! PART 1 EXTREMELY PRON HEAVY!!!!

Im going to break this post into 2 parts. Ill post one today and one tomorrow for the conclusion...

2 Years ago I decided to have a pig roast. It was a blast. We butterflied the pig and basically grilled him. Last year we rented a spit and rotisseried the pig. This year we went hawaiin style and buried the pig in the ground.

This was Kevin (my soon to be best man) digging out the hole in which we will be using to roast the pig. We dug the hole a week before the roast.

and again... (these 2 pics were probably the only 2 scoops of dirt he actually dug... go figure)

Then comes trouble... With all the flooding and rain in NY just days before the roast, we went to take the tarp off the hole the day before, and boom... it was half filled with water. We bucketed out the water, but it just came back in as the water table in the ground had risen so much. It was time for plan B...

ROCKS!!! Buckets of rocks!!! 10 buckets to be exact. Fill the hole with rocks until we are above the water level.

The water also rose when we put rocks in, so we put buckets and buckets of rocks in and gave the water level a good hour to settle back down.

Then we did the same thing with dirt. Filled in some dirt over the rocks until we were above the water. We waited for the water to be gone and then we sprinkled a little coating of dry soil over the wet soil.


START TEH FIRE!!! and it just got bigger and bigger....

Put in more and more wood.

Drunk Kevin decided to take off his shirt and use it as a fan to give the fire some more oxygen! We were one drunken stumble away from canceling the pig roast and having the first annual kevin roast!

We ended up burning a little more than 1/4 of a cord of wood.

We started to prepare our pig while the fire was burning.

We injected the pig with pineapple juice mixed with some soy sauce and a little pork rub. We then covered him in some oil and rubbed him down with a good mixture of rub inside and out.

We then covered him in cabbage leaves and wrapped him up in foil. Then wrapped him up in burlap after that. Followed by chicken wire, and closed it up with some bailing wire and made some handles.
(sorry no pics, my hands were gunky, i was rushing and i was drunk )

The coals (which looked more like molten lava) were ready to go!!! We put a nice layer of cabbage leaves in there and lowered the pig down. We then put some wet burlap over him and then covered it all with a tarp.

Then we covered him up in dirt! This is becker doin some shoveling (who showed up while we were dressing hte pig. he came straight from a bar drunk as a skunk and looked like he was about to blow chunks from the minute he arrived)

Pig was buried. Time to get some sleep! Got a lot to do in the morning before people arrive!

I woke up and right off the bat started running into problems. I was late getting the cookers going.

It wasnt so early anymore, so my father decided to come and help me out. So he made a fire in Cindy. (my new name for my cinder block smoker)

I let both smokers burn for about an hour while i did other prep work.

Took off all the membranes and rubbed down 10 racks of st louies. (bought a frozen box from restaurant depot. ended up coming with 16 racks of st louis racks for 100 bucks)

Made 2 chickens. Ran low on time so i did a fast modified version of Chris Lilly's loaf pan chicken. Coated it with applesauce and worcheshire, and gave it some salt pepper, paprika, and some raw sugar.

Some foccaccia bread for an appetizer. Threw some mozzerella on the top and put it in the oven. sliced it up into little slices for people to grab.

My fiance made some home made cole slaw for the party.... kevin made his moms famous macaroni salad, but i dont have any pics of it. both were absolutely delicious. and both are all gone.

My fiance also wanted to make some pigs in a blanket. I couldnt say no.

Heres one fatty i made. Provolone, roasted peppers, spinach. I bought 2 bags of frozen pork meat from restaurant depot to make the fattys. 10 lbs total. i was gonna make 3 fattys, but the sausage was no good for them. too soft and wouldnt stay together. made it impossible to roll em. so i did the best i could, patched em, mushed em into form and threw em on tin foil to cook, so the cheese and everything wouldnt just be all over the place.

Fatty #2 red pepper, american cheese, green apples. i also couldnt do a bacon weave bc the box of bacon i got was the cheap box and was basically all fat and the pieces werent uniform enough to make a weave. next time ill spend the extra money for good bacon.

I was also going to make 80-100 ABT's for the party as well. But those i would wait to start making later on. A few friends also helped me prep those.

Smokers were up to temp! Time to get the meat on and wait for guests to arrive!!!....... (as me and Kevin were praying to god that our friend (the pig) was cooking below the ground....)

Whew, I'm exhausted just from looking. That's an incredible amount of work and I'm sure it was fun as well. Can't wait to see part 2. Hope you took a day or 2 off after this to recover, I know I would. With all the rain you guys had I'm amazed you were able to pull this off, Great Job!
