FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What kind of pig roaster do you use?
We have custom made, one-of-a-kind rotisserie pits called the “Oinkmaster". This is an open air rotisserie style
roaster which allows you to see the pig cooking while it's spinning.
2. How many people can you serve and what size should I order?
We have accommodated parties of 1,000 ppl +!!! Size is based upon the number of people. A pig will yield 1/3 pound
of meat per person. Therefore, a 100# pig for 100 ppl, 60 # pig for 60 ppl. etc..... Please note that we have a 60 person minimum.
3.What cooking method do you use?
We use a direct heat cooking style with only all natural charcoal that burns more steadily and evenly than
commercial brands. It also produces less soot that can affect the flavor of the pig. NO PROPANE IS USED FOR
THE PIG EVER!!! This style of cooking also makes the skin nice and crispy. The chef's favorite part!
4. How long does it take to cook the pig?
We slow roast the pig for maximum flavor and tenderness. With the Oinkmaster, a 100lb pig takes about 8 hours
to cook. For bigger pigs, an additional 30 minutes should be added for each 10lbs of pig.
5. What kind of time commitment is there to put on a pig roast?
Day of the event: Between 12-24 hours are put in by our staff. This includes the following:
a. 1 hour hook up and loading of vehicles
b. Travel to the pig roast site
c. 1 hour of charcoal preparation and site set up
d. Pig roasting time
e. 1/2 hour carving time
f. 1 hour site clean up
g. Travel back to the home base
6. Will you still do the pig roast when the weather is bad?
Absolutely! We are prepared to cook the pig no matter if it is raining or the temperature is below zero.
We have tents that are put up if needed to protect the pig roaster and pig crew.
We also have heaters to do winter events.
7. What is the smallest pig roast that you will do?
The smallest number of people that it is feasible for us to prepare for is 60 people. We will do parties
for fewer people, however, we must charge for 60 people for the pig to make it financially viable for us. This is
because regardless of the number of people served, our time spent in prep, event staffing, and cleanup is
essentially the same.
8. What equipment do you provide and what is the host responsible for?
The Pig Kahuna will provide all the equipment needed to roast the pig as well as the serving dishes and implements.
The host is responsible for providing all other equipment needed to accommodate their guests:
tables, chairs, plates, cutlery, tents, etc. This allows the host to customize the presentation of the
event to match their own style and price range. Client must also provide tables for the buffet. An electrical outlet within 75' and a water hose that reaches the cooking site. The cooking site must be relatively flat and be accesible by vehicle as we tow the roasters behind our vehicles.
