Eric has been known to put on the occasional pig roast, clam bake, BBQ, or other random events that for some reason people claim there's always too much food. Of course, Eric disagrees with this and continues to add new feature dishes usually without retiring any previous items.
This section will expand as we have time - for now here's a few random photos from pig roasts and picnics of past years.
Pig Roast 2002
This is way before the major landscape projects took place at Eric's house. It's also before the main section of the bar was installed. Make sure you note Jim Sheldon (below top row left) otherwise known as "The Clam Man" has been a known character at our various events, he will be missed as he unfortuantely passed away in 2009.
Clover Rod & Gun Club - Pig Roasts & Events
Shown below left is a 75lb pig pinned to a 60lb ship bottom roast. Spinning on a custom built rotisserie powered by a hay bailer motor driving an old truck tire to slowly turn and self baste these beasts for over 12 hours. There are two such contraptions at Eric's hunting club, Clover Rod & Gun.

Eric's decision to start welding one day resulted in another such contraption. This portable pig roaster features a dual fuel heat source allowing a custom made propane pipe burner or coals to provide the flames.
