Spit roasting a pig brings out the natural flavours of the pork and allows for a slow roasting that will infuse the flavours of the spices, sauces and marinades with the pork. It is recommended that before you put the pig on a spit over flame or heat, you stuff the pig with both sweet juicy fruits and savoury spices.
A fantastic combination is to stuff the pig with chopped pineapple and teriyaki sauce and to continually baste the pig while it is roasting with teriyaki sauce mixed 50/50 with coconut water. This stuffing is ideal for creating a sort of pan-Asian-Hawaiian-fusion style roasted pig on a spit.
How long does it take to cook a 30kg pig on a spit?
Cook for about 4 hours, then take the pig off the spit and let it sit for 15 minutes.
