News 2015

Latest news about the Brogdale Old Spot Hog Roast Company is that we have moved more to the the Do it Yourself market and with this we have now formed the following Company,   The Brogdale Hog Roast Hire Company Ltd. The website is now designed to show another side of our services where you can have the fun of doing the cooking and serving for yourselves.

Do not be confused with the layout of the site it does show arrange of hog roast services, but this will be explained when you enquire as to whether you will be hiring in equipment from The Brogdale Hog Roast Hire company or using the professional services of our sister company The Succulent Pig Company run by A.Round Hog Roasts and Catering Services where you can have chefs and catering staff if you feel that the Do it yourself is not for you.

You may ask why have we gone down this route and why are we encouraging you to take the plunge and cook your own Hog roast, or hot roast lamb, or even a three meat slow roast.

Well the reasons for this was most of our customers possibly this could be you as you read this and see that it applies to you also

 1.) The party is for our family and we want something informal in our garden

 2.) There is only going to be about 40 of us,  (do not worry the do it yourself offer can cover bigger groups

 3.) We only have small budget

So we encourage you to hire in our very simple to use Hog Master Hog Roasting machine and have one of our small award winning pigs from the butcher of Brogdale or have a half a pig cut from head to tail and we can still present it in the machine to appear almost like a whole pig from one side.   We also offer a lovely three meat slow roast with joints of pork, lamb and beef.

We deliver the machines and give you plenty of advice and you do get a backup contact number should you need some encouragement or further advice.

So what else can we tell,  Well since we the last news of 2014 we worked with our sister company Succulent Pig, A.Round Hog Roasts and had our Hog Master Hog Roast machines being used by them for hot ovens at both the Faversham Transport Weekend 2015 and the Faversham Hop Festival.  What is great news also is that Succulent Pig will again be at both the Faversham Transport Weekend on the 21st and 22nd May 2016 and will be looking to be at the Hop Festival later in the year.

During 2015 the Brogdale Hog Roast Hire Company  supplied the  Hog Master Hog Roast Machine with the award winning pigs from the Butcher of Brogdale to a number of other catering outlets, including a local Established Catering firm and a number of local pubs and schools.

The Pubs include,

Dover Castle Public House20 London Road, Teynham, Kent ME9 9QS

The Roebuck Public House, Harrietsham, Maidstone ME17 1HX

The Port of  Call, Dover, Kent

Jolly Sailor, 75 North Gate, Canterbury Kent

Another successful area of our Hog Roast Machine hire and pig roast is with Schools and other organisations doing charity events,

Some of the schools supplied include the

Davington Primary School, Faversham, Kent

Kings School, Canterbury, Kent

Herne Bay Catholic Social Club, Herne Bay

All the above took advantage of having a hog master hog roast machine, a free range fruit fed pig, prepared for cooking by our chef and delivered to you, we provide you a gas bottle and temperature gauge, show you how to use the machine and advice on carving and you can make the most of your function, showing your guests just how good a chef you are.

The cost of the do it yourself service allows you to have a hog roast at your home or chosen venue at almost half the cost of having a chef attend and do all the cooking for you. If you aspire to cooking BBQ’s and want to take the next step then our Brogdale Hog Roast Hire Company is the way to go.

The service also allows organisations to make a profit at their fetes, or charity organisations.

Other news to give you about the use of the Hog Master is that we have one that can Spit Roast a Lamb, this needs a little more confidence and attention to the machine whilst the lamb is turning.

The Hog Master Hog Roast machine from the Brogdale Hog Roast Hire Company was also used at the Folkestone Harbour Festival.

It has been used for a number of Firework display nights at private homes and sports clubs.  It has been hired out for Christmas where a family were having a large family gathering and also asked for an extra-large turkey, beef and pork and gammon to be supplied with the machine.

We also travelled as far as Osea Island Essex and had the pleasure of hiring to the holiday park there and they eventually purchased one of our machines as they were so pleased with it. It was an interesting hire as we had to be very careful with the delivery and collection as you have to pass over a tidal causeway with only a short time slot between the rising tide.

Our Hog Master Hog Roast Machine hires have been used as far as Ramsgate, Camber Sands, Hastings, Westerham, Ilford.

During the winter to assist in keeping the cooking times down and to cover the machines in case of bad weather we also hire out flame retardant gazebos and bain-maries for keeping the carved pork hot.

So all I can say to finish this recent news page is to say we are currently taking bookings for this forthcoming season and we will be having an advert in the April edition of the NorthDowns advertiser.

Please remember that we only supply meats supplied by the award winning butcher  The Butcher of Brogdale,

We are proud of our working business relationship with Lee and his great team of workers, and they always make sure we get the best of Meat produce available.
