Was this magical ritual called a barbecue?

That's what we always called it at my house.

I rarely eat bacon (health reasons). Normally I stick to pork chops, cutlets etc. This morning coming to work I smelled bacon in my apartment hallway from one of my neighbours...I was simultaneously drooling and nauseated.

???

I think somethings wrong with me.

There is something gratifying, in the most primeval sense, about having a baby animal cooked and served in its entirety.

Really? I'm a big BBQ guy, but I don't get this.

In the south we call this a pig pickin' and it's delicious.

I've partaken of a spit-roasted adult pig before. I am now curious to try piglet.

Seems like a perfectly reasonable response to the smell of bacon cooking.

Did this once many years ago at a Scout-o-rama. One of my patrol members (Steve) lived on a pig farm, so he was able to supply a 20-pounder (dressed weight) cheap. While we were roasting it, the cooking judges stopped by and stared and sniffed and stared a bit more (wasn't done yet). One of them said, "We'll be back, after we pick 2nd place." I suspect Steve still has that blue ribbon somewhere.

Maybe Israelis need to try this so they wouldn't have so much trouble with their neighbors.

For Toronto and Southern Ontario Farkers, there's a guy at Bloor and Cawthra who does piglets to go. About $120, for 20-30 lbs.

It's really good, and great for Easter family gatherings.

Eh, China just hasn't been the same since the Paper Maker lost that scientist slot and Great Generals were nerfed. I wouldn't call it one of the most powerful civs.

This weekend I get to take part in my 3rd Schlachtfest here in Germany. That's "slaughter party" for the non-German speaking folks. My Saturday will consist of heavy drinking and processing a freshly slaughtered tasty pig. Here are a few examples of what's to come.

Fresh sausage....the dark red ones were my contribution....fixings for homemade chorizo.

Blood sausage.....nuff said.

Yeah I eat veal, and I want to try suckling pig, but not for the primeval sense of eating a baby animal, but for the experience of the flavor. If he really wanted a primeval experience, he'd go hunting and kill, gut, and cook the meat himself.

I love meat, I'm not a hardcore animal rights person or anything, but I just find something distasteful about eating baby animals. It's the main reason I dislike veal.

/Yet I think the US has a "child worship" problem. Hm...

When my daughter was three we were out at a restaurant and I was having lamb. While I am simultaneously stuffing my face and commenting on how good it was she tugs on my sleeve and and asks "Daddy, do they kill the baby lamb or did it die?" Not expecting the question I didn't understand at first what she was asking. She was staring at me with big blue eyes that were tearing up a little "did they kill it so you could eat it or was it dead already?" I still can't eat lamb without thinking of that moment and she won't touch it. Of course it's due to being far removed from your food source. My wife's cousin had a small farm and he used to have a pig roast once a year. He had the pig and some other animals slaughtered prior to the roast and his young daughter wanted to know if their pony wanted to join his friends in the freezer. She never had a problem eating lamb.

/btw after having mucked out sheep stalls for a few years I figure I have earned all the lamb I can eat.

Sounds sort of like the fun I have cutting beef up. You can get beef really cheap if you buy it in large slabs, you really only need a sharp knife and some imagination... That sounds kind of bad.

/a sharp knife and imagination works for most human problems

Toronto has, probably, every kind of restaurant you could want. Even found a Peruvian one.

Woah, really? That is only 5 minutes drive from where I live. MUST CHECK IT OUT!

Is it in the same plaza as China City take out restaurant?

South side of Bloor, West of Cawthra. On the east corner of the mall. It's a deli, named after a small town north of Toronto where there's a Toyota plant.

WOOT! I know what I'm doing for my next birthday. Invite all the family over for roast piglet dinner, yummy.

Ignorance is bliss for me when it comes to eating dead animals.

Baby pig is unlike baby cow in that the meat isn't more tender. Then again in general pork is more tender.

However, a whole baby pig is manageable for a group of six or so to eat; which is the appeal over an entire sow.

Pig face and neck are where it's at, best meat of all.
