Spitting pig & the hog roasting industry
The origins of spitting Pigs involvement in the hog roasting industry go right back to the very beginning of hog roasting in the UK. A chap called Charlie went on a round the world trip after Unervicity on this trip he travelled extensively and worked in Australia where he came across Spit Roasting. Back then one of the only machines available was the wheel an roast built in Australia so Charlie bought two and sent them home figuring it would be fun to do after his travels. When he returned to the Uk he had two big boxes waiting for him having no idea how to build a hog roast machine he got his friend Henry who had been travelling with him to give him a hand.
Together they built the machines then the real fun began how on earth do you cook a pig? Well then began a journey of trial and error until the two decided they where ready to let themselves loose on the unsuspecting general public. It was decided to do a friends party this went really well. Perhaps we are onto something the friends thought next came a battered old transit van then the friends were in business. They went from strength to strength and decided they needed help so another friend Sebastian was roped into help.
Having spent all summer sleeping in the back of the transit van cooking pigs Charlie and Henry decided it was time to join the real world and get a job. Sebastian however could see the potential and decided to turn a small time fun hog roast company into a proper commercial concern. He had plans, yet another friend Adam was enlisted to help and these two set about becoming the UK’s leading provider of hog roast catering in all its forms. Selling to the public at fairs and on the street at markets and also doing parties initially for family and friends then spreading their net throughout the UK, Northern Spit Roast was born.
