A Down-Home Celebration
Looking for a fun idea that will work for any occasion, from Mother’s Day and graduations to Memorial Day weekend? Our budget-friendly take on a classic pig roast is easy to size up (or down), so it’s just right for any gathering.
(NO) PIT-ROASTED BOSTON BUTT
You don’t have to splurge on a whole pig or dig a pit to get falling-off-the-bone-luscious pork, dripping with juices. An inexpensive Whole Boston Butt, slow-cooked in a Dutch oven until it’s irresistible, can feed 14 people. Need more? Go for a Whole Pork Shoulder (it feeds up to 25).
Forget the fancy decorations — this menu calls for casual touches with an old-timey flavor:
- Skip the napkins and put out a few rolls of Berkley Jensen Paper Towels
- Instead setting of a buffet table, just pass dishes family-style
- Peel freshly cut sticks for roasting marshmallows over a Berkley Jensen Fire Pit
- Make favors by filling brown paper lunch bags with fun-size candy from the Club
YOU CAN'T HAVE CAKE WITHOUT ICE CREAM.
