At the Spitting Pig head office we have been very busy taking in hundreds of quotes and enquires everyday by phone and email, so we are always busy every day, Monday – Friday 9 – 5. We are always here to help and answer any queries you may have so don’t be afraid to call up or email us.
As you have recently put up three hog roasting machines for hire and buy, we have been selling and hiring out loads of them ever since we put them up which is fantastic news. Catering Business, Restaurants, Home Chefs and Mobile Catering Business all have jumped on the band wagon and bought or hired out our different yet amazing (in their own way) hog roast machines.
The Mobile Catering Business have gone for the Titan and the Professional due to the Titan’s vast cooking ability, roasting up to eighty kilos of meat and the Professional’s small structure which can be moved around with ease yet it still packs a punch in the roasting section for those who want a hog roast but on a smaller scale. Pubs and Home Chef’s have opted for the Professional hog roast machine due to its small scale roasting. The Zeus hog roasting machine have been snapped up buy Restaurants and some Catering Business who want larger scale hog roasting or even just roasting even though these are hog roasting machines you can also use it for other food and meats such as; vegetables, potatoes, lamb, chicken, pork, beef, turkey and many more different meat you desire to roast.
We are extremely pleased at how well our hog roast machines are selling. Now back to what we do best our catering for the nation. We have catered for towns all over the UK and it is truly a pleasure to do so. Even though we have catered for towns all over the UK hundreds maybe thousands or even millions of people out there still do not know about hog roasting and about The Spitting Pig, it is astonishing how there are people out there missing out on a experience to die for (well not literally, but you get what I mean). You really must experience a hog roast and roast a hog yourself both are totally different experience yet both are very rewarding. We at the Spitting Pig would love to cater for you event and show you a five star hog roast experience.

Here at the Spitting Pig we have been hog roasting for many many years now and know full well what makes and what doesn’t make an amazing hog roast. We have catered for millions of events so we defiantly know how to cater for any event and adapt to your needs. We feel we are the leading hog roast catering business out their yet many people many not know us. We get millions of enquires every year yet some people have never heard of us, it is a shame since they are missing out a truly unforgettable experience and they may want it again and again.
So here at Spitting Pig we have been branching out from the head office for many years now having branches from all over the UK, to get the Spitting Pig name out across the British Isles and on everyone’s mind. Like we have mentioned before you must defiantly try a hog roast in your lifetime it is so amazingly delicious you will wonder why you haven’t tried it before, have a gander on our website and look at some of the menus they will defiantly get your mouth watering.
We have a Twitter page and recently we have created a Facebook page so we can regular update and spread our name out through the internet. Our name usually get spread from events, since we host such an amazing events the guests at the event request our number or business card so we can cater for them or someone has had an event and then has told a friend or friends who have upcoming events about us.
Hopefully over the next couple of months the online social networking sites help us spread the Spitting Pig name, if you think if one person tells two friends and that philosophy we will have over hundred people in no time at all.
We feel the only way to roast meat is with a hog roast machine, and we have some of the best out there you can even buy or hire a hog roast machine so you can become a Spitting Pig chef for the day or forever, doing it yourself is really good fun and it is an enjoyable experience, especially when you for example roast a hog and potatoes and some vegetables and serve it up for your family you can sit back and think I made that.

Here at Spitting Pig we have had a wonderful weekend full of glorious events, and one was such with a big company opening day in Preston. We has to set up to hog roasting machines since they wanted both Spit Roasted Pig served with Apple sauce and Stuffing as well as Spit Roasted Lamb served with Mint and Mustard & Dill sauce. Two very good choices since we feel all of the meat on our menus are truly amazing in their own way.
We have been catering for this company for many years now and are as loyal as they come, becoming friends over the years it is always nice to catch up it makes the event that little bit special.
We knew the drill so we quickly assembled our hog roasting machines in our usual roasting spot and then put up the gazebo and serving station up. We began roasting the hog 6 hours before and the lamb a little less. Guests started to arrive and then we began to engage in a discussion. They were asking how much does it cost for a hog roasting machine, how much does the pig cost, how can I get one, could you cater at an event for me. We were able to answer any question thrown at us.
We begun to carve up both of the meats and place them on a platter to be easily and quickly served into a Soft Buttered Roll and drizzled with Stuffing and Apple Sauce or with Mint and Mustard & Dill sauce. We feel both complement the required meat perfectly. As the guests waited in anticipation; mouths water and taste buds tingling waiting to be in front of serving station and being served their meat. We started to served out our wonderful dishes of amazingly cooked food so happy guests, who received their food quickly dashed out the queue and began eating, some didn’t even leave the queue to start having a munch.
More and more guests arrive and filtered over to our serving station and then disappeared somewhere eventually after hours of serving the event came to an end and so nearly did our supply of food, we always bring more than enough food, which can be carved up and left for people to pick at which customers love, since they can have it for later or for another time since they can make great butties.

What a wonderful weekend we had at the Spitting Pig, going from event to event, place to place, north to south and new to old customers. The sun has started to shine and it has shown in the number of sales going up and event enquires. We Brits love the sunshine and when it is out we can’t get enough of it, sunbathing in the garden or on the beach, having a good ole BBQ, going for a swim in the pool or ocean and now having a hog roast is becoming more popular in the summer and sunny spring days.
You cannot deny how delicious and popular a hog roast is becoming within the UK. People around the British Isles are discovering the mind blowing taste of a hog roast and wanting more and more, the guests at events taste the delightful dishes and want to have an event hosted for their party. After having events hosted for them, some customers decided to take on the role of hog roast chef themselves and have bought or hired one of our machines. We feel becoming your own hog roast chef is a totally different experience and as rewarding as having The Spitting Pig host for you. You can dazzle your family by roasting up a scrumptious feast for them all which will look visually amazing as well as taste superb, or impress your friends with a hog roasting machine and roasting a hog right in front of their eyes and make their taste buds tingle with the gorgeously roasted meat.
We had a special event this weekend hosting a Christening for a beautiful baby boy. We roasted a hog in our hog roasting machine outside the church while the Christening commenced, we had prepared 6 hours early so the hog would be cooked as soon as the ceremony had finished. We set up; soft floured rolls, fresh hot stuffing, tangy apple sauce, crispy crackling and pig meat were all ready to be put into a soft roll and handed out. Once the ceremony finished everyone filtered out the church towards the hog roasting machine for their feast. Respectably the family who’s baby was christened received theirs first. The baby boy preferred milk to our hog roast unfortunately, apart from that everyone else enjoy their pig in a bun very much and widely complemented our cooking skills and presentational skills, we gave out our business card to various guests who wanted one for their event.
It was lovely meeting new baby Joseph and hopefully see him soon.

You can defiantly tell its Spring now, with the wild weather changes. Raining, to Sunshine back to Rain, then Sun. I wish the weather would just make up its mind, the Spitting Pig doesn’t mind the wacky weather since we use gazebos in the rain or shine so nothing can ruin a good ole hog roast. We can cater for any event in any weather or condition; the scorching heat, finger numbing snow, bone chilling rain, blistering winds we will be there with a smile on our face and a hog on the roast. We would rather appreciate some shelter though, if there is some to cater in.
Even though you may think having a hog roast in the winter is crazy. We still get booking for the winter, since a hog roast is a great winter warmer plus people exchange the original Christmas dinner for a hog roast or spit roast, or they even celebrate New Year’s Day with one. We have also sold many hog roasting machines over the years to people wanting to host a Christmas dinner for family and friends and to celebrate going into the New Year with a hog roast surrounded by loved ones.
The Summer is when the Spitting Pig gets most enquires since; it’s Summer! People get the BBQs out in the garden, lay out the sun loungers, fill up the paddling pools, the fun in the sun begins. Some people decide to try a new summer experience and have a mighty delicious hog roast. Whether we cater for them or they do it themselves, either way it is an experience everyone should have in their life time. It is a truly remarkable and unique experience you will never forget and will be wanting again and again.
Whether you are wanting to hire us out or hire one of our hog roasting machines out or even buy one, we truly recommend you experience a hog roast and we would love it if you were to experience it with us, we will show you a 5 star experience you, your family, friends and guests will want many times, we can help you become a hog roasting chef with our professional help you will be roasting away in no time, you can try out try before you buy service where you rent it for a week or more and if you love it you can buy it straight away.

Here at Spitting pig we have been catering for a variety of people this Easter and another one of our event was a spectacular Easter wedding which was as dazzling as the food was. We set up bright an early as the sun shone on the ancient wedding chapel, it was like the wedding was getting blessed.
The lovely Yorkshire couple had picked both; Spit Roasted Pig with Apple Sauce, Stuffing, Crispy Crackling as well as Spit Roasted Sirloin of Roast Beef served with Horse Radish Sauce, Yorkshire Puddings and Homemade Red Wine Gravy, they both sound mighty fine plus they will be served Crusty Bread Rolls, Selection of Sauces, Fresh Locally produced Vegetables and Roasted New Potatoes in Rosemary and Garlic. Wonderfully crafted Canapés were served as the guests arrived and delicious produced Puddings were served after the main course.
We were all ready prepared with canapés at the ready, gazebos up, tables laid, cutlery out, meat slowly roasting away. As the guests started to arrive and canapés were handed out while most of the guests gathered round to see the hog being roasted. We were asked many questions but one that kept coming up was, when would hog be read? Their mouths watered that bit more when we opened up the hog roasting machine and lifted the beautiful golden hog up into the carving position. By that time nearly all were gathered around watching it be carved onto a plate drizzled it with apple sauce and put some stuffing on the side, then we added roasted new potatoes with Rosemary and Garlic, some of our fresh vegetables, golden and crispy crackling. The bride and groom received theirs first, then the other guests who were in line. Some people before they even reached the table took a sneaky bite of the meat just to stop their belly and mouth waiting.
After munching down on a spectacular main, a light and delightful dessert was in order, Chocolate Torte and Cheesecake were perfect choices. Both were enjoyed extremely , the bride and groom were was really something special and we were told we made it that extra bit special, since the food was “truly amazing in every way” we said our goodbyes and drove back to the office knowing we had done a extremely spectacular job, we cleaned the glorious machines which helped us along the way and rested up until the next job.

Here at the Spitting Pig we had an eggstra special Easter this year, just like we do every year. The Spitting Pig was very busy all over the UK from Friday the 6th to the Monday the 9th. We at Spitting Pig love to celebrate festival events; Christmas, New Years, Birthdays, and many more. A hog roast perfectly complements any day, weather, time, and place.
We had a massive corporate do to cater for which we would be hosting for over 500 people. We took up the challenge and embarked on a mission with our esteemed hog roasting machines to Liverpool. We got there bright an early on a chilly Easter Sunday, set up two roasting machines one with our hog roast kit and one with the chicken spit kit. We then began to roast the beautiful pieces of meat our speciality Roasted Pig which will be served with Apple Sauce, Stuffing & Crispy Crackling and accompanying that will be some Free Range Spit Roasted Chickens served with Stuffing and Homemade Onion Gravy which defiantly had their mouths watering just by hearing of what will be served at the corporate do. Slowly but surely the sun poked it head around the clouds then started to shine little after that the corporate workers slowly arrived in ones and two then began to arrive in big group and before we knew it over 300 people were at the event with more arriving by the minute.
We started to cut and butter the soft breaded rolls, get bowls of our freshly made stuffing and Apple sauce, plus start to boil the gravy for the chicken. We then carved the pig up while my colleague began to carve up the chickens, two quickly queues formed one of the chicken and one for the hog. People in the queues watched on mouth watering waiting for them to be next in line holding the gorgeously roasted meat in their hands on or their plates. You could see the delight on their faces when they were standing in front of you next to receive their meal. If could be described just like a children begin handed some chocolate or sweets. Once they were given their meal they moved to the side quickly and began to chop down on the meat. All 500 plus people was filled with joy and delicious meat. We were widely complemented and gave out our number to many workers for us to cater for them in the future.
All in all it was a excellent day for us and the corporate workers since they got to enjoy a hog roast this Easter.
