Joe and Molly opened a tasting room for their brand new tasting room, Tempus Cellars (located near the airport). Now my guess is they named it "tempus" because it has Latin meaning referring to time. Which leads me further to guess for the consumer this implies "it takes time to make great wine" kind of a thing.
So when Joe asked about food for a tasting room opening, it seemed more than fitting to slow roast a whole pig in our brand new upgraded pig box. Because, well, a pig takes a long time to cook.
Here are some photos. It was pretty dog gone spanking good.
The pig box, after a few hours, pig inside resting peacefully. The grills swing open to allow adding coals.
Asparagus grilling for the buffet table. No it's not local yet. But the pig is, we got it from our friends at Blue Valley Meats.
The finished pig, being messily butchered. The cracklings were fantastic.
The ever so simple buffet, grilled veggies, coleslaw, bread and butter, and pig... lots and lots of pig... which got all eaten up.
