Post Event Review

Pig Roast at Makers Local.

As of 4/10/13 waiting to see if we're moving to a new space before we start with pig roast logistics. As of 5/20/13 the plan to moving to a new space fell through and is no longer a factor. Pig Roast will proceed! NOTE that there will be a LAN party later this same day during the evening hours.

The Pig

Put a request out for recommendations on Huntsville's subreddit

Rocket City Meats

  • 103lb frozen pig has been paid for and ready for pickup on Wednesday, June 12th, 2013. $310.37
    • Lady is supposed to call back to get my credit card info, but has not
  • They said to call close to the end of May to purchase the pig.
  • Tentative price was $2.69/lb. An 80lb pig would be $215.
    • Worth noting that a 103 lb pig should be $277, not $310 (at the previously quoted dollar per pound).
    • Pig is head and skin on.

Stuff to Cook Pig

  • Wood Chips: Preaux picking up from BrokenTrace on June 10th
  • Charcoal: $31.27 (Pre-purchased, awaiting pickup at Home Depot)
  • Injection Kits: Jeff Purchased 3 x "Cajun Garlic" @ $4.99 / ea. Total Cost = 1.08 * 3 * 4.99 = $17.17
