How to Roast a Pig --Or in Other Words-- ...Have a Pig Pickin'

Record #:
Most North Carolinians do not need to be told what a pig pickin' or a pig pull is. Because state citizens love pork and an outdoor shindig so much, former Governor Robert Scott in 1972 declared the state the Pig Pickin' Capital of the World. Sargent describes what is involved in a traditional pig pickin': selecting the pig, building the barbecue pit, building the fire, and placing the pig on the grill.
