Our friends John and Elly had an equinox pig roast on Monday. That morning I pitched in and hauled the whole hog from Pastaworks to John’s house nearby. Later that night Holly and I stopped by and enjoyed some delicious roast pork along with several chutneys, baked beans, and a table full of snacks, bread and cheeses. John and Elly even made some sorbets for the occasion, which were delicious.
The crowning touch was that the rotisserie itself was constructed from bike parts! John had secured two road frames into the ground with re-bar, and adapted the bottom brackets to rotate a long section of pipe. The pig was threaded onto the pipe, and there it roasted, turned slowly by hand, for about 8 hours.
