    I have a new oil drum that I want to turn into a pig roaster, but I can not find any plans or pictures on how to make one. I need some hints on how to do it the first time, alway seems I make something and then I figure out a better way. If anyone has any ideas or pictures it would help, I have told family members that on Labor Day I am having a pig roast, have the pig just need a roaster.

    You could contact TxCloverAngel
    She has a wonderful website that tells all about their farm pig roast with pictures and as I remember they have the kind of set-up you are talking about.

    bbbuddy I like that roaster and I think I am going to try it this fall at the family get together. But for my own sanity the head of the pig has to be cut off lol. Funny I find that sight not so good when in fact my favorite part of a pig to eat is the jaws. Go Figure lol
