Lechon Asado in Alex/DC area


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure this is the right fourm but I want to have a pig roast at the house over the weekend of July 4. Does anyone have a recommendation for someone who can cook a whole pig Latin or Filipino style? That is to say on a rotisserie and not in a drum on a grate. I've cooked quite a few both ways but I am having a hard time sourcing the size pig I need up here. I am thinking it would be easier for me all around if someone else cooked it and brought it to the house instead. By the way, I am looking for about 100 lb dead weight pigs so suckling pigs at Eden Center wouldn't work.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I can't help with the pre-cooked variety, but if you're still interested in sourcing your own pig, Springfield Farm in Sparks, MD may be able to accommodate you. Friends of mine have gotten both a whole pig for roasting and a side of a pig to breakdown and cook from them. Their current price list does list whole roasting pigs ranging from 30-200 lbs.

Try Springfield Butcher in - you guessed it - Springfield (http://www.springfieldbutcher.com/), or Let's Meat on the Avenue in Del Ray (http://www.letsmeatontheavenue.com/)

I've ordered several pigs from both places, in sizes from 40lbs up to 67.5, dressed weight. Either can probably get you the size you want. Springfield generally wants a full week's notice, Let's Meat 4-5 days.

If you want to do it on a rotisserie, you'll want someone to cook and deliver. If they cook on-site they'll be there overnight.
