Looks like party for sure. I've wanted to try cooking a pig like that every since I picked up a copy of Francis Mallmann's Seven Fires a few years back. Roasted oysters....That brings back fond memories. I haven't bought a bushel and roasted oysters in a loooong time.

Chef Byres new cookbook just came out (there is a link to it in the story). In it he has diagrams of his pig setup that he built. It all unscrews apart for transportation.

He also put together this meat & tortilla warmer that sets on top of a 50-galllon drum.

that's a really sweet setup. pig + oysters = gluttonous ecstasy.
