A Pig Pickin’

Defined: A pig pickin' (also known as rolling a pig, pig pull, pig roast or, among the Cajun, "cochon de lait") is a type of party or gathering held primarily in the American South which involves the barbecuing of a whole hog.

Friends, we got invited to a New Year’s Eve Pig Pickin’ on South Whidbey Island…and it was so fun! It was a friend of a friend invitation, and no one will be surprised they spent time in North Carolina before moving up here.

Using “man-legos” (aka cinder blocks), a huge oven was built on the back porch, and the pig that had bit one of their friends was chosen to be the sacrifice.

There were bonfires, friends, fireworks, and lots of sweet pork.  Great, great evening, so thanks Ruth!
