    Pig Roast and Pool Party!

    A few pictures from this year's pool party for the church youth group...we grilled an entire pig, which turned out much better than expected.

    The guest of honor:


    Me with the pig


    Finally on the grill; youth pastor Micah and me.


    Getting cooked...girls are excited! I had to saw off the feet so it would fit in the grill


    Turned out pretty well, surprisingly.


    All the kids!

    The pig was about 50 pounds gutted. Since we weren't able to get a big enough grill for indirect cooking, we just put it right over the coals , which I knew was not really the best idea, but we didn't have a choice. We cooked it for about 6 hours over charcoal, with some soaked palo verde thrown in as well. The whole underside of the pig was burnt to a sooty crisp, but there was plenty of meat that was still moist. When it was done we just ripped it apart and made sandwiches out of it.

    We probably had about 15 pounds of meat left over. Micah was going to try and boil all the flesh off the skull so it could be a souvenir. One of the kids ate one of the eyeballs, and about puked.

    MITS, check out the "caja china" (Chinese box), a contraption which does it almost the old-fashion Cuban way (dig a pit, fill with coal, hang the pig from the spit and turn turn turn). Comes with easy-to-follow instructions. The other secret: soak the entire pig in a (clean) 50 gallon garbage can or bathtub full of mojo.

    X2 on the "caja china" if you plan on doing this with any regularity - those things are awesome.

    Re: Pig Roast and Pool Party!

    In Brazil, we used one of these. It's called a forno caseiro (homemade oven) and it is basically made out of mud like an igloo with two holes at 90° to each other. Build a huge wood (usually eucalyptus) fire and after it has mostly burnt out push the embers out of the second hole. Insert pig on metal tray with taters and other goodies and return in a few hours. The residual heat in the mud walls cooks the pig. Spectacular. I'd love to have one here.
