Following on from the great feedback in last week’s story of finding bacon in Canberra, Im hoping some Rioters might be able to help with my predicament.
A few weeks ago a friend bought a spit, which did a great job of a couple of legs of lamb for Australia day. Now Australia day is over, but the spit remains and so we are looking for what to cook on it next. We’re thinking of trying for a whole animal, and our first thoughts went to finding a pig.
What animals do Rioters like throwing on their spit for a party, and more importantly, where abouts in the ACT region does one go about finding them? Do you simply visit your local butcher, a meat wholesaler, an abbatoir, a farm or what?
Also, what ballpark figure would you expect to pay for a whole animal?
