    I guess we are looking at two options....

    1. We, the group, do the work and supply all that is needed.

    2. We pay someone to come and do the work and supply all that is needed.

    Thoughts......

    Also, We would need the pig or butts to be roasted in a contained unit...not on the ground...by whoever does the roasting.

    I'm afraid I don't know much about the actual planning, cooking, etc.
    My Scout Troop just always made me the butt guy, so I got that handled if it's decided we go that way.

    If you are the butt guy...does that mean that you would be doing the roasting...or arranging with the pros to do the roasting?

    My thoughts...unless there is someone that really loves doing the work of these pig/butt roasts...a.k.a...Shug wannabe....we should get a pro, so the rest of us can enjoy the weekend fellowshipping/relaxing and hiking.

    Artjrk...are you suggesting that you would like to be the roaster?

    Again...what does everyone think?

    I'm saying I always had the job of buying, trimming, rubbing, wrapping and delivering the meat, ready to roast.
    I'd be more than happy to handle that duty for the group.

    We would still need someone with BBQ smarts (either pro or volunteer) to handle the cooking/smoking.

    Wow...nice of you...a step in one direction.

    Now, we shall see what direction we end up going.

    Thanks PapaSmurf!

    It's bad Karma and form to turn people away from a pig roast... The pork butts idea is a good one, especially if you are doing it yourself. I raised a hog and roasted it in a cinder block oven, and it's a lot of work to do a big hog, I camped out next to it all night...It's fun though! Wish I would have had hammock savvy then...Where is this party going to be? I would help out if I can make it...

    Hard to tell right now if I could get away, but I had another idea, How about roasting a smaller pig (easier to handle) and a bunch of butts too. I think it adds something to have the whole hog...I like the idea of renting a big rotisserie roaster you could have the pig turning in there and the butts surrounding it getting dripped on. Slowly smoked falling off the bone. mmmm

    Great idea....the ambiance of a roasting pig...with butts on the side!
