    Pigs, Oysters and Fire!

    Went to the Austin Food & Wine Fest again this year. Chef Tim Byres of Smoke in Dallas again roasted some pigs. he also roasted some oysters over 50-gallon drums.

    Here are some pics.



















    Chef Byres went through 1,500 oysters, 3 pigs and a bunch of pork butts

    More pictures and the oyster recipe here.

    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.
