Best pig pickin' caterer / hog purveyor in the Triangle?

emandm | Apr 4, 2010 08:45 PM

We're planning a fall wedding in Chatham County, and would like to do a really top-notch pig pickin'. The idea is to order an heirloom hog and hire a pig master to cook it, perhaps along with some fish or chicken. A separate caterer is providing sides like slaw and mac n' cheese.

Two questions for all you pork-loving hounds:

1) Which Triangle-area farm provides the best whole hogs? Cane Creek? Elysian Fields? Brinkley Farms? We'd like something humanely raised and ultra-delicious.

2) Who does the best pig pickin' catering in the area? I've heard good things about Smokey Dave from Hillsborough, Pig in the Pen in Pittsboro, and Allen & Son. A guideline to my tastes: my favorite Triangle BBQ places are probably Old Time BBQ, Clyde Cooper's, and Allen & Son. I like plenty of crispy outside brown and lots of nice spicy, vinegar-sting-y Eastern-style sauce. We'd need someone who was cool with just doing the meat, not the sides.

Any guidance you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks!
