We are roasting a Pig for my Sons Birthday, he has a large party with all his buddy's/family every year. This pig was born on Mothers Day, they processed it yesterday and it dressed out at 65lbs. We got the Apple wood fire going and seasoned the inside of the pig with Cajun Sea, Salt, Pig rub, garlic, apple sauce. We got the pig on the spit and turning by 10:45 This morning, I"ll have pictures later on of the finished Pig.................

Chicken wire is galvanized steel wire - nothing poisonous there...

Right, about the wire. Done that way often depending on who's doing it.

Craig, your always invited my friend, next time around...........
 
We Roasted off a few Mexican seasoned Angus Chuck Roasts and shredded for taco meat. We cut 2" slices off of Angus Sirloin butts to marinade/ grill  and sliced like a London Broil, served with a Bearnaise sauce. We had fresh baked rolls, Tortillas, Fresh made Salsa/Chips, Scalloped Potatoes, Charro beans, Fresh corn on the cobb, all kinds of fresh salads/ relist trays, pasta salads, develed eggs, and of course 2 Kegs.........This is a picture of the Pig about 1/2 done, the Pig took about 8 hrs. I was to busy slicing the London broil and serving the Pig to take pictures of the finished Pig. I was busier than a one legged man at a ass kicking contest.

Great looking pig!!  We always use chicken wire to wrap our pigs.  We start very early in the morning, then off to Cracker Barrel for breakfast.  The first time we had a pig roast, I came home from work to the pig packed in ice in my bath tube!  Maggie,our yellow lab, barked at the pig all night!!

The pig looks great, one thing to remember about galvanised materials in contact with food, it is normally no problem, but if you have an acidic solution, say a sauce that is in contact with the galvanised material, it can dissolve the zinc into the sauce, is this a big concern, probably not, just worth mentioning.  
 
Hope your party went well!
