A Unique Birthday BBQ

At Swillington we love it when our customers get creative with our produce and cook up something special, whether it’s an intimate supper club or a family barbecue, an event with friends deserves great food.So when Charlie, one of our meatbox subscribers, asked if we could supply a half pig for a barbeque which was being planned to celebrate the 24th birthday of his twin brothers Gregory and Robert we were happy to arrange it.Charlie and his brothers had made an American style ‘smoker’ by cutting a reclaimed barrel – bought for £10 from Gumtree – in half and adding mesh to make the grill. The half pig was duly prepared, collected from the farm and cooked for guests.

“The BBQ was an amazing day. The pig really was the centrepiece.”

As well as the BBQ an old horse trailer had been turned into a DJ booth where the brothers and their friends took in turns to play some tunes in to the evening. It looks an awesome event and thanks to Charlie for sending us the details and photos.If you have a special event coming up that you need some fantastic food for don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
