Hog Roast Andover

There are many hobbies that are, it is perhaps fair to say, the subject of some ridicule in many circles. Trainspotters and stamp collectors are just some who spring to mind but another one could be the home brewer. It does seem strange that home brewers should be the subject of such derision, after all they are able to produce beer and wine at a fraction of the cost of buying it from a store. However, I suspect that it is the taste of these home made products that is the target of the ridicule. I am sure that we have all experienced examples of home brew that have been odd to say the least. Not to say that all home brewed drinks are of such questionable quality. There are probably many which are superb. In fact former Andover resident Cyril Berry did quite well from writing about homebrewing, going on to sell millions of copies of his books. So, whatever you may care to think about home brew, it left a good taste in Cyril’s mouth.

Well, I say swing....but hog roasting is not exactly a speedy process. Far from it actually. Big joints of meat take time to cook and a whole pig is certainly no different, though there is far more to this than simply ensuring the meat is cooked through. The chef has to make sure that the all important juices that are stored in the pig are released during the cooking, and this is why it takes around six hours cooking time to produce the optimum hog roast. A long time, maybe, but your Andover guests are going to thank you for it. They are going to get to enjoy some of the tastiest meat they will ever have tasted. Hog roast meat is super tender and totally succulent and the crackling is simply out of this world.
