Having a BBQ pig roast party is a great way to entertain. However there is a subtle difference in entertaining a small crown of friends with a back yard BBQ party and trying to entertain and cater for a bigger crowd, possibly for a larger family occasion. The standard BBQ is great for smaller scale get-togethers, and is a perfect accompaniment to an intimate setting.
The subtle change occurs when you increase the number of people and the atmosphere looses its intimacy, you start to approach the party type atmosphere. Often the BBQ can struggle to cope with this change in group dynamic, essentially the BBQ changes from being the focal point and theme of the evening.
Why a BBQ Pig Roast Party?
If you want to maintain that BBQ buzz with a bigger crowd you have to somehow boost the presence of the BBQ itself and return it to being the focal point. Hands down, the best way to do this is by having a BBQ pig roast. A BBQ pig roast party is a much more dramatic affair than the standards BBQ grill and is a great ‘theme builder’ for an evening! A real sense of anticipation grows as people can actually see and smell their food slowing cooking throughout the evening!
As well as the atmosphere benefits of a pig roast, it’s practical too. If feeds a lot of people and takes relatively little maintenance while it’s cooking.
