Dear Scott42,

Thank you for your inquiry.   I hope the following information will help you in 
your party plans.

== Recipes for roast pig
Not knowing what theme you had for your party, I took the liberty to research 
some of the ways to roast a pig.

Hawaiian Style

Cuban Style


Roast Sucking Pig - Border Inn at Howgate, famous favourite haunt of Sir Walter 

How We Cook Hawgs in Mississippi
Proceed with caution!!  Experts only.

== Basic Ingredient Breakdown

1 whole pig or suckling pig
1 BBQ, oven or open pit
Various spices and marinades
Aromatic wood

== The Pig
Thanks to the diversity of the Bay Area, there are many ethnic butchers from 
whom you can request a whole pig.  It may still need to be special ordered.

Some suggestions are:

Ranch 99 Market
They have locations throughout the Bay Area.

This local chain is a high-end grocery store.  The just started to carry Niman 
Pork products.  You can probably special order a whole pig or suckling pig.  
This is also a fantastic place to find all those fancy spices the recipes call 

Some local butchers in San Francisco Bay Area.
These may or may not be able to provide a whole pig.
Search for ”meats” and put in a local city.  I was able to find several in San 
Francisco and Oakland.

In a firts time I found a page where it's explained how to roast your pig ! It 
can be very usefull !

To rent a pig roaster, you can go on this site : in the heading "Grills & Griddles"

To rent it you have to go to the form adress : and ask a catalog (but I checked, they 
got pig roaster)

This is my second comment (I'have already commented on the question which title 
was "Famous 4-hour sleepers" ) And I'd like to become a websearcher. I applied 
but I'm waiting for the answer.

Voila ! ;-)
