When going out to purchase a new hog roast machine, there are many different features and options you need to consider when buying the equipment. The first, and probably most important aspect of selecting a new hog roast machine, is the method of cooking the pig. To start, do you want the quicker, easier gas/propane cooking option, or would you rather cook the pig with charcoal or wood. Charcoal or wood tends to take a considerable longer time cooking the pig, although the flavour is better than the fuel based option. This is up to you though, as you need to decide how you enjoy cooking the hog and how long you want to wait during the cooking process.
The next item you need to consider when you want to buy a hog roast machine is how large the machine is going to be. Pigs vary in size, and so to do the machines. You need a machine that is able to completely cover the hog of your size. The larger the machine the more expensive it is going to be, but the last thing you want is to go purchase a hog roasting machine, only to find out your desired pig is not going to fit into the machine.
Chances are, you probably want to move the machine around, so when you buy a hog roast machine, you need to opt for an option that allows you to move it. Unless you are going to keep the roasting machine stationary the entire time, having a set of wheels on the equipment is helpful, especially if you are going to be roasting a hog for competitions. These wheels have locks on them, so when in place you do not lose the machine. Many of the hog roast machines also connect directly to the rear of a truck or other vehicle, so you can easily transport the roasting equipment to any location you desire.
When you want to buy a hog roast machine, there are some devices that come with different gauges and readings, so you know exactly how hot the temperature is inside, without actually opening the device. This allows you to monitor the hog, without opening up the panelling, which releases the heat and cools down the hog. Having this is a nice feature, although it is not always necessary, depending on how you like to cook your hog. After cooking several hogs, you are going to understand when the hog is done, just by the smell and the timing, so eventually you aren’t going to need all the fancy gauges or anything else.
When you want to buy a hog roast machine, you need to determine what material the equipment is going to be made out of. There is stainless steel, although this shows dirt and other smudges easily (which you are sure to experience, while roasting an entire hog). There is also a cast iron option. This is heavier, but often times it is cheaper than the stainless steel or chrome option, but it does insulate the heat well. This is all based on preference, so if you have experience with a particular kind of hog roast machine, you should go with what you know and what you generally use to cook the meat, as one machine might take longer to cook a hog than another, which is going to throw off recipes that you have created on your own.
Once you have your brand new hog roasting machine, you are able to begin cooking your hog, at any time, whenever you please, without waiting on someone else or purchasing your pork in sections from the store.
If you have decided to buy a hog roast machine, you need to consider many different variables with the item, which is going to have an effect on how the machine cooks the pig and how much it costs.
