Pig Jig

Foreword - I swear that this will be the last time we talk about Hogs for the Cause ... at least for a little while. (Also, please note that we neither condone nor intend to glorify the smoking habits of our porcine friends.)

You could not have asked for better weather for a pig roast than this past Saturday. After a 4:00am start, Rene and Becker delivered this beautiful beast to the table just 12 hours later. The skin was crisp and the flesh was unbelievably juicy and flavorful.

Even the kids liked it.

Plus those who attended were able to watch a real food blogger in his element. (And, to be fair, he also shucked the hell out of some oysters. And he took better pictures than us ... again.*)

Good weather, good people, good food, and a good cause all made for a great time.

* EDIT - While we stipulate that the dread pirate Peyton takes better photographs than us, we must take note that his performace is solely a product of his superior equipment. The Folk Singer takes great pictures with her bargain-priced camera, and we thank her for her services. No doubt that her photos would be better if she carried around a mini-tripod in her purse.
