I've done 5 or 6 pigs from Parker now.
It's Canto style with a traditional dry-rub of spices and blistered skin.
Zero complaints.
Each pig over the years has actually been better than the last with their best being the one I ordered this past March.

If you're getting a pig. Don't be a dumbass and waste the head.
Jowl meat, cheeks and face meat is amazing and there is a ton of it.

While we're on the subject,
What's the best place for Filipino style Lechon?
I'm looking for the thin glassy skin that shatters.

A lot of lechon I've seen (from videos) show a softer more slow cooked texture (akin to American pulled pork) compared to HK style siu yook.
Some have a more intact meaty texture.
While I prefer the latter, the skin comes first.
I want something that absolutely shatters and explodes with the barest touch.
Let me know.

Ended up going with Parker Place one. $220 for a 20-25 pounder. Extra $20 to have it cut up. Actually I was thinking about the head. Will probably end up boiling it for soup.

yup, i 've done it a few times, the head, feet, just boil soup OR make congee.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.
