I recently attended a wedding where a roast pig was the focal point of the dinner buffet.
It was cooked in a Caja China style box and the aroma added to our happy anticipation of the meal. Sadly the pork was completely tasteless.
You could see that a rub had been applied to the skin. Just curious how this could be...The pig wasn't that big. Could it simply have been to young to put on enough fat to develop good flavor? Any theories?
Fortunately the rest of the evening was completely enjoyable and more importantly the bridal couple had a terrific time.
