How to carve a suckling pig?

KenWritez | Dec 12, 200801:55 PM     8

CHOW's currently running a feature on serving whole roast suckling pig. About time, I enthuse! I love the idea! I'd love to do a kahlua-style pit roast porl on the California beach with friends. (If only I could find some agreeable people to meet me on the beach for a feast....)

The only problem is, if I were to serve this, I have no idea how to carve it. Do I need a bone saw, multiple knives, tongs, meat forks, etc? I imagine I do, but I'm willing to be corrected.

I'm not sure where to even start cutting on Mr. Porky.

Anyone have any advice, warnings?
