Default Need Serving / Display Ideas

We are cooking pulled pork for 1000 this weekend. Part of the deal is that I am displaying a whole hog to give the illusion of a hog roast (80# Hog slaid out in the condiment and sides table). He has to be cooked on Friday, then refrigerated. Ideas on how to display him Saturday? He will be on a board covered in foil when I get him done Friday.

Thanks, I'm drawing blank.

What if you used the smoked head, but used the pulled pork as a mocked up body. Could pull the pork form the display to serve, leaving the head only at the end. Scott

Maybe make a big "show" out of cutting the body up and chopping, etc, then throw it in the pit in a couple pans to heat back up? You sir, may be on to something.

I think you need about a 600 pound hog for that one. Good luck finding a smoker big enough for that beast.

Pack his thorax or body in ice, until serving time.

Dammit, this is insane. If your gonna display only his head, have a nice big apple in his mouth.

If your going to eat the meat, I would display for a very short time, then I would refrigerate whole hog. Otherwise............behead hog, and put a 50# bag of taters rearranged under wraps to look like a hog body.

Undertaker mod.

Going to my room now.

Keep the hog just for looks - Butterfly the body and splay back-up on your foil covered board, put apple in mouth, sourrond body with vegatbles, add baseball cap of home team. Use olive oil on skin when cooking to get nice bronze skin. put can in mouth when cooking. Watch snout and ears so they don't burn, use foil on them when they get to the color your want.


PS - If you really want the skin to look great and you are sure nobody is going to eat, you can always use shilac or food grade vanish

I would love to see what you end up doing. I just found out I am catering a Renaissance Feast in January and they want a hog for the centerpiece/main dish - I will be "carving" it for the guests in front of them.

I first displayed the pig, carved it for show then added pulled pork and sauce dishes to compliment the carved piggie with the head still attached to the skeleton.

OK, maybe I'm missing something.

Who really wants to sit there and looked at fully intact animal carcas while eating a sandwich? I mean I love meat...but come on. That seems taking it a bit far.

Neil - You have a valid point, but it's lost on most who attend an event that features a whole pig. If you think it's a little off to be around a pig being carved, avoid a picking at all costs. I'm not sure you could handle pretty girls in bikinis, with a beer in one hand fighting over who got the crispy skin or tearing chunks of meat off with their fingers. All very primal and makes for great after (and sometimes during) party, well use your imagination.
