Well, I finally broke down and bought my husband the Caja China roaster box for our anniversary. Now I need to find the pig!! We live in Northern Bergen County, but I suppose I can travel if need be. Any suggestions of where I could track down a whole pig? Preferably from someone willing to butterfly it for me?

Lastly- if you have any pig preparation tips other than those already offered on other threads, I'd be forever grateful!!

THANKS

Hope that's a start!

I think your best shot would be at Bieler's at the PA Dutch Farmers Market in the Kingston Mall on Route 27, a bit north of Princeton. This is where the competitors I talked to at the NJ State Barbecue Championship got their meats.

Call them at 609-683-5260. They're open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only.

When I used to work in the Ironbound section of Newark I drove past Seabra's Supermarket every morning (on Wilson Avenue).

There were usually trucks unloading specialty foods and I often saw whole pigs being unloaded and carried into the market.

So I would guess they have them available.
