Stainless Steel Thermometer
All our pig roasters come equipped with a stainless steel thermometer installed in the lid to monitor the pig roaster temperature.
Drip Pan
A 13 gauge drip pan carries undesirable fats to a drip tube that drains to the outside of the pig roaster. The pan prevents charring from the coals and allows a pig to be cooked without needing to be turned.
