There are two sizes of roasters: oven roastersand pit roasters. They are called oven roasters because they can be cooked in a household just like a large turkey. They weigh between 20 and 50 pounds. While large roasters are about 100 pounds. These pigs are just the right size for a outdoor pig roast.
You may be wondering “What size pig do I need?”. The rule of thumb is 1/2 to 1 lb of meat per person for large roaster pigs. For small roasters double the weight per person increase to 1 to 2 lb per person.
