​In God We Trust all others must pay.

​​​​Often people want to know, what does the pig taste like? To others this may seem obvious, but not everybody has been to a pig roast. I tell people that it will taste like "a pork chop" or fresh pork. Some times people get "roast pork" confused with bacon, ham or pulled pork. Bacon or ham have been "cured" in salt and smoked, that is why the ham and bacon are pink and salty. "Pulled" pork is usually a pork shoulder cooked long & slow till it falls apart. It will just shred very easily. It will look kind of stringy. I like to "chop" the pork in small pieces. I do not shred the pork because I find that it will "dry" out very quickly (unless adding sauce right away) . The skin is almost always crispy and will have a smoky taste. The meat will have just a hint of smoke, even though the pig is cooked over wood the skin blocks the smoke from the meat. Remember pig skin is thick, they make footballs from it. And most of all the fresh roasted pig is not "greasy". I find so many shall we say "un-educated" people who think the pig will be fat and greasy. Yes pigs have fat, but a 70-120 lbs. pig has little fat compared to the cuts of meat at the super market. Super market cuts, such as chops, ribs or hams are cut from large pigs, not roasting size pigs. So there... is your pig roast lesson of the day.

A description of our bbq sauce: I know it is hard to describe "taste" in words, but here it goes. Our mild sauce is a tomato based sauce with a little taste of citrus, molasses and onion. The heat is very mild and comes from black pepper and mild chili powder.
Our standard spicy sauce is tomato & mustard based and the heat comes from a special mix of peppers. This sauce is what I call spicy but not "hot". It will not boil your gums down, but you may break a sweat.

Additional info: No reservation is final until I receive the deposit. You will

receive an email or hard letter when I receive your deposit. Then the date is yours.

I am very fair about this. I keep a running list of all calls & emails and I take

reservations on a first come first serves basis. I can “pencil” you in for a given date

pending your decision and I would get back to you before giving the date away.

If having a party in a park or other public area the customer is responsible for all

permits that are needed, if any. Some counties or towns require them and some do

not. Some locations require a “certificate of insurance” from me the caterer and I

can provide this with just a phone call to my insurance agent. Call me and I will

help you with any info that you will need. Health permits are needed if you are

selling tickets to the public, such as fund raisers. We have no problem with health

inspections due to the fact we adhere to NJ health standards everywhere we go,

public or private.

Pig roasts require about 12 X 20 feet the more the better. I understand that in some

towns room can be hard to find. But we must work safe, I have a perfect safety record

and we like to keep it that way. We do not cook in buildings or garages, under or

on decks, on boats, or under low hanging trees. We do not place our cooking

equipment against buildings or near trash dumpsters.

The BBQ Picnic is your best option if cooking space is limited. You will not have

a roasted pig but the food you will have will taste so delicious everyone will still

be happy anyway.

All jobs have no less than 2 people at all times (included in price), more than 2 if needed. Pig roasts have one cook & one assistant. BBQ Picnics have one grill cook & one food set up person. We ask that your guests not touch any of our equipment at any time.

Weather: We can cook rain or shine. In the case of an extreme event such as

hurricane winds or violent thunderstorms we will do our best to work with you to

make the party happen.

Final Payment is due at the completion of the job, Cash, check or credit card is

fine. We accept VISA, Master Card, American Express, Discover and PayPal. Card must have an EVM chip (no chip we do not accept. PayPal’s rules).

Due to the drastic increase in credit card processing we will start charging 3% fee for all purchases using Visa or Master Card & American Express. However you can still reserve with credit card by phone and there will be no processing fee. This will allow you to lock in your date quickly without the extra charge. Although you will receive a $5 fee if you cancel and we return the deposit to your card (that's what the bank charges me).

 Cancellations: I will refund your deposit in full if you give me two (2) full weeks

(14 days) notice. Refunds are usually same day but can take up to 7 days. If you

give us less than 14 days’ notice your deposit is forfeited, no “if, ands, or buts.”

 Violent Weather: We do not offer rain dates as it makes it impossible to fit our business platform. However we will work with the customer to the best of our ability to make your event a success during inclement weather. We can cook rain or shine. Severe rain fall can sometimes slow us down by a few minutes.
