...ZQ here....Yes, we realize that the pig will be roasting for most of the day. We have the pavilion reserved for the day, and the pig can be roasting there. When time to eat, the pig will be off the bone and ready to eat...Yum, Yum! It is yet to be determined if we will have a pig roast. Tim thought it might be fun, but he wants to detemine if the cost will outway the "fun".
I thought I remembered someone commenting here on HF about a friend or family member that does pig roasts that might be able to do one for the MAHHA. We would be interested in the specifics if there is such a person.
