So just what is hog roasting? Hog roasting is a much loved party or occasion where a large hog is slowly cooked on a spit, whole, over the course of a number of hours. Loved the world over, to the extent of predating the constructs of both nationality and ethnicity, hog roasting dates back hundreds of thousands of years and is popular to this day.
Spit roasting is the method in which the hog is cooked, and isn’t exclusive to only pigs — Rotisserie, or Spit roasting, is a style of roasting meat in which the animal or cuts of meat are skewered on a spit(a long steel rod) and slowly cooked over a fire, or alternatively roasted in an oven. Many animals are typical for spit roasting, be it pigs, chickens, lambs or more rarely whole cattle! More recently, spit roasting is better known to many for cooking Doner kebabs at the local take away. Although the vertical spit used to cook doner meat is a little less common.
As one of, if not the biggest Newcastle hog roast caterers in the United Kingdom, we have developed several unique spit roasting machines — all of them are specially tailored and manufactured by us to ensure our service is the best quality it can possibly be. All of our machines are capable of cooking a wide range of animals, meat cuts and even non-meats. Let us tell you why spit roasting is such a special – superior to the rest, even – way to cook meats and cater for your event attendees. If you recall earlier we made mention of the global popularity of the spit roast and the way in which the meats are cooked? Well, we’ll go into a little more detail.
Our spit roast machines slowly cook the meat of your choice over the flames, rotating the animal round and round to ensure a finished product that’s both tender and juicy. You see, as the hog, chickens etc slowly spin and roast, it promotes a self-basting process that sets the meat apart from the rest. There’s many ways to cook meat, and many of them see the produce lose their natural juices and often dry out, but with the self-basting process this doesn’t happen. With the animal constantly spinning, rather than losing that natural goodness, the juices are constantly re-entering the animal from the top down, preventing a loss of moisture and natural fat that’s ever so common when grilling or traditionally oven cooking. The end result is mouth wateringly tender meat with plenty of delicious crackling to go around. The food is as good as you’ll taste, outstanding even.
We value quality and go the whole hog with our catering service. Ethically and locally sourcing the best British produce on the market to compliment the quality of our machines and chefs, what you’re given is a service that sees most clients come back to us, time after time.

We began as a small catering business based in Yarm and used our years of experience in the industry to development a small, friendly hog roast catering team and started to cater for small parties and events in our home town. Our excellent reputation quickly spread and more people became interested in booking our hog roasts and barbecues for their special occasions.
Over time we started to expand taking on extra members to join the team. We trained them up to our high standards and shared with them our extensive knowledge of the hog roast catering industry so that we had a full team of highly qualified hog roasters. After this we began to venture into new areas and once again our reputation grew and grew until we were popular throughout the North East region. Like the river Tyne itself we also flowed through our homeland our popularity increasing more and more with every event.

Having been born and raised in the friendly atmosphere of the North East, our management have more than just a business concern in this region. With a love for the area we come from, our mission at the start of our catering venture is echoed in our approach today; that of bringing sensational food to the people of the North East, a place which we feel is the embodiment of personality and spirit, irrespective of wealth, prosperity or the inadvertent lack of either of the above.
With a long family history set within the trade of catering, our decision to adopt the seeming stance of the sole respectable promoter of the hog roast as a crux of a precision catering service came from a chance experience whilst abroad. During a sabbatical, one of our head chefs found that the way in which the ‘ranchers’ of the North East slowly roasted their meat, even though the beef was relatively poorly seasoned, created a taste that was superb. Allowing the meat to cook slowly and in its own juices, the self basting nature of the spit roast facilitates a taste that can be found nowhere else.
