How to Carve a Whole Roast Pig

http://i0.wp.com/burninlovebbq.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/p6050137b1.jpg?resize=220%2C165Fellow La Caja China fan, Byron, asked:

Perry, I have a HUGE pig roast coming up. Well the pig is going to be average size, but we are tailgating on the river and I ‘ve invited my biggest customer and his family to join me. I have done a lot of pigs in the LCC and I am good with that part.

Do you have or does any of the cook books have some hits or ideas on the process after the pig is done? In the past it was always family and friends so we just cut it up the best we could and ate it. I need to do this more like a catering event with side and things. Thanks…

Okay, so I did some looking around, and couldn’t really find any illustrated carving instructions that I really liked…so I made my own!

These directions would work nicely with any of the “Pig Roasting Party Themes” included in my free eBook, the La Caja China Guidebook.  And, of course, there are tons of side dish recipes in La Caja China Cooking, and La Caja China World.

Hope this helps!

  1. Perry, on Guam we set the roasted pig up on the table and allow the individual diners to cut and take whatever they want. It is fun this way and nothing goes to waste…believe me.

  2. Yup, we call that a “Pig Pickin'” back home, lol. lots of fun!

  3. I love the picture. The only thing missing is me eating as you peel it off. HeHe!

  4. I think you are over the top with this pig carving instructions. Could not have done it better myself. My husband does the carving and he is the expert. My favorite part are the ribs. and the skin. Can’t wait until Christmas Eve, thats the next event when we roast the pig. LOL

  5. This looks absolutely fabulous! I’ve never experienced carving a pig, but we do roast whole hogs in this part of the world, and they are fantastic. I can only assume that the meat of a carving a pig would be a bit more interesting!
