At Big Roast we have a number of different options for hog roast marinades that we use on our hogs – and we have found that these also work very well when you have been cooking pork at home. Whenb
Lappies Braai Sauce
We are great fans of Lappies Braai sauce and this is probably the most common sauce we use for our roasts. Unfortunately we have to import it but we think that it travels well and compliments a hog roast perfectly. The meat once cooked is gently marinated just prior to serving giving the food a glorious moistness
Our favourite is later in the evening of just dipping the pork in and refueling so that the evening can last a little longer. Customers can purchase the sauce directly from us and we can dispatch across the UK – for detailed information check out www.lappiesbraaisauce.co.za.
Bromley Injection Marinade
Named after the famous borough of Bromley – famed for little but marinades, this connoction works well for injecting pork roasts that will be smoked and pulled. Big Roast actually used this at an event as a side dish to the main hog roast. Make sure you grind the herbs and spices well so it won’t clog the injection needle.
