Should I cook the pig or get a caterer to do it?

There is a lot to be said for bringing in the professionals when you want something doing. For a start, you know that it is going to get done properly. Some people never decorate, choosing instead to get decorators to do it for them. Then again some would say where’s the fun in that?

When it comes to the cooking of a hog roast, you probably need to ask yourself just how much time and effort you are prepared to spare if you choose to do the cooking yourself, because a hog roast really is a commitment of time and effort. You may find it useful to learn just how long a standard hog roast takes when cooked by an experienced caterer. It’s a rather long six hours! That is six hours that you may want to be spending elsewhere on other event related matters. If so, then maybe cooking your pig is not ideal and you may want to give it a miss. On the other hand, if you have always fancied yourself as a bit of a hog roast chef at heart then you may still be keen to give it a go, and if that’s the case then the Spitting Pig team can certainly help you achieve that goal.

By hiring a hog roast machine you can easily get a taste for what it’s like being a hog roast caterer, and you will be using the exact same equipment the professionals use. Our hire package really is quite special so you may well want to give it a go. We can arrange to deliver the machine to your door, complete with a full gas bottle. If you really want, we can supply the pig, too….but of course you can source your own. Once you have used the machine, we come and collect it! How simple is that? We think it’s an unbeatable opportunity to try hog roasting for yourself. Better still, we have some great offers if you love it so much that you want to keep the machine.

Now this all sound fantastic, and we know of many hog roast caterers who started off in this way. We also have many customers who bought a machine to use for the odd special occasion, but what if you simply want to serve up hog roast at your event and do not want the hassle of cooking it yourself? It sounds to us like this is one of those occasions where you really need to call in our catering team. It really is the stress free way to enjoy hog roast at your event without all the hassle of cooking and cleaning and serving the food yourself. If it is a really special occasion then having to look after food is probably the last thing you want to be doing, so why not let somebody else take care of it all by letting the Spitting Pig hog roast caterers do all the hard work so you don’t have to. Put up those feet and enjoy your pig!
