What is the best size pig to roast?
The ideal size pig for a pig roast weighs between 120 & 150 lbs. Use about 30 lbs. of Charcoal to start the fire & an additional 10 lbs of charcoal per hour during cooking process will be used.
Cows and pigs, animals of great weight, are lifted from the floor by their rear legs, causing them tears and breaks. After that, they are slaughtered by the killers, their trembling bodies can be extended endless minutes.
Most pig farmers buy “weaners,” piglets about two or three months old that are no longer reliant on their mother’s milk; they then raise the pigs to slaughter weight (typically about 250 pounds), which on factory-style farms is attained by the time they’re 6 months old.
Pigs are slaughtered after four to seven months. Sows produce around four to seven litters before they become exhausted and are slaughtered at three-to-five years.
