What makes the Platinum machine so special?
It’s a quality machine that has been designed with the help of experienced hog roast chefs rather than by people who have no experience of using hog roast machines. What a lot of people forget about hog roast machines is that the cooking process, whilst crucial, is just one factor that makes a machine special. The other is that the machine has to be able to stand up to the rigours of day in day out catering, and that can mean being moved about a fair bit, often over rough territory and through tight spots. For a lesser machine this can easily be damaging but the Platinum is a tough nut to crack. You also get superb British engineering with the Platinum coupled with some truly versatile touches such as the dual cooking areas which allow you to cook two things at once. All this quality and attention to detail may mean the machine is more expensive than some others but this is a unit that will stand the test of time and will be around a long time after the lesser alternatives have gone to hog roast retirement home. And of course, if you really want to see the quality for yourself, you could always hire a Platinum or even come to the factory.
What if I am asked to cook something other than pig?
That is a common question that we get and it really is not an issue at all. You see, although the machines are called Platinum hog roast machines, you are not restricted to cooking just pig. It’s simply that this is what they were mainly designed for. The Platinum is a great machine for cooking wide range of meats, so you might want to consider cooking a lamb or joint of beef and see what the results are like! We think they will taste delicious but see what you think. And don’t forget to check out the chicken spit kit as this allows you to go completely chicken crazy and cook over thirty large birds! With the Platinum, you also have the option of cooking a regular hog roast in the upper level and a separate meat option in the lower level, which could be ideal if you have just a few guests who would like something different.
Can I used the Platinum without electricity?
This depends on how you want to cook on the Platinum. If you wanted to do a spit roast then you need to be able to access mains power for the spit motor, though a car battery option is available. This would mean that you can still spit roast outdoors at a school fair or at a music festival for example. If you just wanted to use the regular roast facility without needing the spit then you are certainly okay as this just needs the gas on its own, so you are not having to rely on any fixed or portable electrical power at all with this scenario. If you really wanted to spit roast the meat yet don’t have mains power or a car battery option, why not spit roast indoors and then take outside in the carving position? Whatever option you choose we are certain that the guests are going to love the taste of the meat regardless!
If I start a hog roast business, will I do okay?
We think you will, but just like any other business, you will really need to work hard to get the results you want out of the business.
