“Made your pig roaster and our pig was perfectly done. We lined the bottom of the pit with fireplace bricks and Aluminum Foil, also lined the long sides of the pit with foil. We had never roasted a pig before but it seemed like we had been doing it for years. Thanks. May the good Lord take a liking to you.."
"(We) first discovered your site back in 2004. ... My college roommates and I were inspired to do a Cuban style pig roast for one of our 21st birthdays that same year. We started in a residential neighborhood in Newport News, Virginia.Ten years later, we're still at it. Thank you for your site. We couldn't have roasted our first hog without your help!"

"For my 36th birthday I roasted a 75 lb pig on my roaster that I adapted from your excellent directions. I was thinking about buying a china box when I stumbled upon your site and I decided to build a box. I was unable to get cinder blocks at an affordable price, so I decided to build it out of steel with a wood frame to the same dimensions. I put the whole thing on a bed of red brick that I had. The pig took 5 1/2 hours and the bacon glass was spectacular! This method was way better than roasting on a spit. I made the mojito with your recipe, pounded with a mortar and pestle. Perfectly executed due to your excellent instructions. Mahalo Nui Loa!
