So much so, in fact, that it just made us use the word “magical.”
But even though your final round of charcoal butler interviews are well underway, and you finally found a place willing to rent you 57 Slip ’N Slides... you’re forgetting something.
Like finding someone to roast a whole hog in your backyard.
Enter the Mobile Pig Roast, a new service from the guys behind Goin’ Coastal involving you, 20 to 1,000 fellow swine enthusiasts and a few Berkshire pigs, now booking for Memorial Day weekend and beyond.
Before we go any further: this isn’t some catering outfit showing up at your door with a precooked, heat-lamp-ready hog. Above all else, this is an experience.
So let’s say that, despite your best-laid plans, you suddenly feel your talents would be better served as poolside liaison instead of grill man. You’ll make a quick call to Seth Hendricks (aka: your new hog guy) to iron out the details.
And soon after, while you’re busy setting up those Slip ’N Slides, he’ll be up in Brasstown sequestering a few choice Berkshire hogs. Come game day, he’ll show up with a special “pig box” and slow-roast them on sight before serving them alongside accoutrements like Jalapeño Corn Bread Pudding, hush puppies and collards.
Oh, and you can also request a full low-country boil.
But still... backyard pig roast.
