The Benefits of the PigOut Propane Roaster for the Pork Industry

Ontario is one of the largest pork producers in North America and a little-known fact is that most of the pork consumed in Florida is reared in Ontario. This is accomplished with over 1,200 pork farms producing more than 2 million tonnes of pork annually. As with any industry, innovation and efficiency are key to staying competitive. An innovation making waves with pork producers is the PigOut Propane Roaster. This powerful and versatile piece of equipment is transforming how pork is prepared, offering numerous benefits to producers, caterers, and consumers alike.


A PigOut Propane Rotisserie is an essential piece of equipment for pig farmers because it allows you to waste less and serve your community. Today, we will look at three primary reasons as to why this automated pig roaster is designed for those in the pork industry. First off, we must understand why speed and efficiency are essentials in the ready roasted pig/roaster rental market. Secondly, its versatility allows you to cater to your customers wants and needs. And lastly, there are significant economic benefits that is a sure way to generate a healthy revenue stream. We will also provide you with an example of what the cost breakdown looks like.


1. Efficiency and Speed

Traditional methods of roasting a whole pig can be time-consuming and labor-intensive, often requiring long hours of constant monitoring and adjustment. The PigOut Propane Roaster, however, is designed for speed and ease of use. With its high-powered propane burners and even heat distribution, it can roast a whole pig in a fraction of the time, cooking a 100lb pig in just 5 hours. This efficiency saves time and reduces labor costs, making it a cost-effective solution for large-scale pork producers and caterers who wish to increase revenues without creating a hassle for their operations.


2. Versatility

The versatility of PigOut cooker extends beyond just roasting whole pigs. Its adjustable design allows it to accommodate baskets and racks that can hold various cuts of meat, including ribs, shoulders, and loins. This flexibility makes it an excellent investment for pork producers who wish to diversify their product offerings. Additionally, the roaster can be used as a portable steam table to keep food hot, adding to its utility for caterers and food service providers.


3. Economic Benefits

Many farmers are diversifying and offering their product direct to the end user. The resurgence of farmers markets is a great example of this, as discerning clients prefer to buy fresh from the actual source/farmer.

Pork producers are realizing that they can sell their livestock for a much higher price if they sell the pig already cooked or provide a method of roasting the pig in addition to supplying the meat. For a relatively small investment, a pork producer can purchase a pig cooker and triple the price that they sell their pig for.

This portable pig roaster is designed to take away the hassle of roasting pigs, the clever clamping system ensures the pig stays in place during roasting, the pneumatic tires allow you to easily position the pig at any location and the heavy grade 304 stainless steel is built to last. The burners and body in fact carry a lifetime warranty.
