Roast Pig

This was just a great opportunity for a culinary "kodak" moment. We had a beachside luau for some VIP clients recently and they purchased whole roasted pigs. These potbellied guys weighed only 50lbs and took about 5 hours to cook at 275 degrees. I always get a kick out of people's reaction when they walk by the oven and see two oinkers staring at them. I should get a video camera and record it for one of those funniest video shows. The meat fell off the bone and tasted amazing once we broke open the crispy golden skin. I enjoyed tasting the pork cheek with one of my culinary students, but I don't think he enjoyed carving them for 200 ppl. Where would the world be without pork????
