OK guys, I've been asked to put a pickin' together for this coming weekend for a friend of mine by his sister. Got a pit. Getting the wood Thurs. Get the whole pig Fri.evening. You guys have had some killer posts with the appetizers, sides, and all that. In addition to the usual sides what do y'all think would put this thing over the top. Three days isn't much time for a 75 person barn burner. I'm in need of some creativity here.
Traditional Carolina pig pickin'...hmmm...how bout:
Beans (use fat from the pig to sit on top while simmering)
Brunswick Stew (cook it with the pig, have it in cast iron pot)
Baked potatoes (twice baked or loaded)
Any BBQ must have hotdogs for those without a clue and kids (I know it sucks)
wings were already mentioned but they're easy. Don't be afraid to cook ahead of time and reheat for the day.
Cherry or peach cobler (or both!)
Vanilla Ice Cream
2 kegs of beer maybe 3 or 4 depending on your crowd
rent large coffee dispensers
Don't forget to enlist the guests to bring stuff!
That should get ya started. What should I bring?
