More Than One Way To Skin a Pig

Presenting a skinned pig

A reader here mentioned she and her husband were looking forward to their first pig roast. Then she said that the butcher was going to skin a pig for them. Now that got my attention. I’ve never had, or been to a pig roast where the pig was skinned. I asked her for a report including photos to share when it was done. She did so and here are some photos and her notes. Click any photo to enlarge it.

We got a whole pig, skin off and then my husband and a friend of my father-in-law butchered it. They then wrapped each section in heavy duty aluminum foil and put them in the smoker. 

They put the meat on around 7:00 am and it was finished cooking around 4:00 pm, turning all the meat once every hour. 

We only used salt & pepper this time and the meat was so tender and juicy!  

Was it a success? You bet! She suggested that they are even going to try to make it a twice a year event!
