Spit Roast Facts

Everything you ever wanted to know about Spit Roasts but were afraid to ask.

Before you use our online quote for your event, here is a little background to help you understand what is offered by The Hog Roast Company.

About Our Machines

One of the big differences between The Hog Roast Company and some part time Spit-Roasters is the quality of our equipment.

Our CE approved spit roast machines make carving the succulent meat easy, from waste height. Our machines are reliable, fully automatic, purpose built and British made.

These spit roast machines are the only ones on the market that give consistent results time after time. They are user friendly, ergonomic and fully automatic for use inside or outside your venue.

Non CE approved spit roast machines are often homemade are both unsafe and unreliable in their results. There have been some high-profile cases where poor equipment resulted in undercooked meat being served at events and guests becoming ill as a result. Not a risk you want to take for your event you would no doubt agree.

Additionally a non CE approved spit roast machine or static hog oven can invalidate household insurance policies and may actually be illegal to hire or use in public places.

Hog in a Bun Spit-Roast Catering

This is a new option recently added to our online quote page.

We have found that many groups need a simple, cost-effective way to feed their guests in an informal setting. For this option we skip the buffet table and provide basic staff to serve your guests with a simple burger station.

Our pork roasts with Apple Sauce and fresh Baked Rolls are always a hit. We can do the same with our Lamb Roast and Mint Sauce.

Other options would be our home-made Beefburgers, Roast Beef, Rotisserie Chicken or Sausage buns.

Our Meat-in-a-Bun pricing is our way of responding to a need we have seen occur often at sporting events, schools, universities and charity functions. This is our no-hassle, economical people-feeding option.

DIY Spit Roast Machine Hire

This is not always the right option for most people but if you have access to your own whole pig or lamb and have the expertise to rack and prepare it, then we can offer the option of hiring one of our CE approved spit-roast machines.

These machines can be easily manoeuvered on wheels and do not smoke or make any mess.

Spit roast machine-only hire is available on a 24 hour basis with a gas bottle included. The client is responsible for collections, cleaning and return.
