Alley Pig Roast, 3rd Edition: now with live theater option!

We didn't widely advertise our first pig-roast, back in March, since it was a trial-run: what happens when, at midnight in the middle of a Baltimore alley, you build a cinderblock oven, lay a locally-welded frame on it, add an 83-lb pig, and stoke the fires for five hours?

The answer: a whole lotta tasty pork.

So we did it again over Memorial Day weekend, in daylight this time, including a parade and 50+ people to help us eat that pig (96lbs). We still had a bunch left over.

Now the summer heat has passed.

Time for Round #3.
