What is a pig roast?

Pig roasts are an ancient ritual that has been practiced around the globe for thousands of years. Almost every known society has some form of celebration or ceremony where the people share a whole roasted animal, most of them being pigs.

In the United States, a pig roast has become a traditional event or gathering which involves roasting a whole pig over an open fire pit. Mostly found to be popular in the Southern states and Hawaii, the practice of roasting a whole hog has been a tradition for more than 200 years.

How many people does a pig roast feed on average?

One of the main considerations when hosting a Pig Roast event is to know how many people your roasted hog is going to feed. And this all depends on the size of the pigs you are roasting. An average sized pig for a spit roast comes in at around 50kg dressed weight, which means all the guts are already taken out and it is shaved and ready to roast.

On average, a 105lb pig can feed up to 90 guests, or around 160 servings of pork sandwiches. And with the pig-in-a-bun idea being popular, these are a great way to stretch out the pig. If your event is not that big, then a 70-75 lb pig can feed up to 60 people with average serving sizes. Just remember, the larger the pig, the longer it will take to cook.
