Roasted Pig

Roasted PigIngredients:

  • 1 whole pig (size varies)
  • Kosher salt or course salt
  • Black pepper


  1. Secure pig to roaster pole following the directions in the PigOut Roaster instruction manual

  3. Liberally rub the pig, inside and out with kosher salt and black pepper or any spice mixture you prefer (use caution when using any seasoning rubs with a high sugar content as this may cause the skin to burn prematurely)
  4. Roast on high heat (400°-425°F) one hour for every 20lb of pig plus one hour i.e. 60lb pig 4 hours of cooking
  5. Check internal temperature of the thickest part of the shoulder being carful not to go to far in with the probe. Temperature should be above 165°F
  6. In case of high winds wrap tin foil around the handles of the machine to close off the air gaps on the ends of the roaster. Keep an eye on the temperature gauge as it may reach very high heat. This also helps for the last hour of cooking to guarantee that you have nice crispy skin.

BBQ Ribs

BBQ RibsIngredients:

  • 1 ½ cups Rib Rub (use your favorite recipe or store bought)
  • 2 racks pork St. Louis style cut spareribs, membrane removed
  • 2 cups PigOut Smokin BBQ Sauce


  1. Rub both sides of the pork spareribs with the spice mixture. Place the ribs in a 9x13-inch baking pan; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Tear off 2 large sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil and lay them shiny-side down. Place a rack of spareribs on each sheet, meaty-side up. Tear off 2 more sheets of foil and place them on top of the ribs, shiny-side up. Begin tightly folding the edges of the foil together to create a sealed packet.
  3. Roast on medium heat (325°-350°F) with the rib racks until the ribs are very tender, approx. 3 hours Carefully open each packet, and drain the drippings, brush the sauce over the ribs.
  4. Place ribs back in the rib racks and lightly caramelize the sauce for 5-7 minutes

Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
