"We are planning a Pig Roast for about 120 people. Can anyone give me any pointers, things I should know, etc? We are renting a rotisserie pig roaster and we have someone who will do the roasting, but we are wondering if anyone knows how much pig will we need to buy to serve 120 people. Are suckling pigs better than mature pigs for this sort of thing? What would a pig (or piglets) this size cost cleaned and ready to cook? Any help would be appreciated."

1.5 to 2 lbs per person, Internal temp should be 165F. Wrap pig in chicken wire to keep it together. Allow no flare-ups–Enjoy

Hi BarbieQue,
For the size 1 lb per person is great as there are potatoes, salads, and whatever else you may decide to go with it. Also to keep the pig from burning spray it down with 7up. (the 2 lt. bottle with a hole poked in the lid) This sweetens the meat and the spray keeps the flames away. Even the skin will become like candy.
On a 125 lb pig, it only took 6, 2 lt. bottles to finish. I bought one pig at a dollar a pound, ready to be put on the spit.
Good luck and have fun : )
