    Additional Information

    Nothing says “serious party” like a suckling pig turning on a spit over a pit of coals. It has been this way throughout time and across cultures, but the essence remains the same. A young pig that has cooked slowly over a fire offers an intense flavor experience. Any gathering with a suckling pig at its center is bound to be a special one.

    Our fresh suckling pigs are ideal for entertaining a crowd. It’s an opportunity to demonstrate your grill skills.

    Since we get the pigs fresh from small farms in our area, this item must be special ordered a full week ahead. Suckling pigs are delivered eviscerated, cleaned and ready for cooking.

    Suckling pigs are especially tender because they are young and still milk-fed. Because of the special nature of this product, we work with a network of New Jersey and Pennsylvania farms to supply the freshest young pigs. While their methods vary, all are committed to keeping small family farms alive, by raising animals humanely with respect for natural practices. The breeds they raise include Berkshire, Hampshire and Yorkshire, all renowned for their great taste and succulent meat.

    Our favorite recipe calls for marinating the pig in a citrusy mixture of orange and lime juices spiked with jalapenos, and then slow-roasting the pig over an open fire or in La Caja China, a Cuban roasting box.

    If you don’t have a place to dig a pit or have a specialized implement like La Caja China, suckling pig can also be cooked in a high-heat oven. Just be sure you have an oven of a size that can accommodate the pig you are purchasing. Once roasted, the pork can be shredded, and it needs little more than a spicy mojo sauce for serving. Any way you choose to cook it, prepare for some of the moistest, most tender meat and crispy, addictive skin.
