Hints and Tips on How to Increase Your Profit Margins
Hog & Rooster After serving in the Royal Artillery for 22 years from 1990 to 2012 I spent a lot of time researching which business I would start in Civvy Street
Hog Tray Support Bracket Having cooked myself for a number of years now using the Elite Hog Trays in both Standard and Giant versions, it has always annoyed me that the crackling is never brilliant around the river of the pig (the small in its back) and particularly around the sides of the stomach
The Elite Wing Nut Cranking Handle Here is the latest addition to my range and a really clever tool that you can add your chef’s professional tool box – The Elite Wing Nut Cranking Handle
Hi Steve, Thanks ever so much for inviting me to your Hog Roasts at the weekend. Apart from thoroughly enjoying myself I was impressed with both of the 2 jobs and in particular as you know, I wanted to see your new oven lid in action. I have to say it cooked the potatoes perfectly and I’m certain that this will be my next purchase from Steve Cullum’s Hog Roast Machines! Your service of cooking with clients who have purchased your equipment is really great and I can certainly recommend it to anyone starting up in the industry, particularly for the first time. My first job (on my own) is only a matter of a few weeks away and I am now really confident that it will be a complete success with your help and training and that Scratch Cooking Caterers will be able to deliver a quality hog roast to customers in and around the West Midlands Area. Thanks for your time and advice, nothing short of amazing! Speak soon, John
Hi Steve, I thought I would drop you a line to thank you for inviting me at the weekend to help you do the 2 Hog roasts for your own clients at the golf course’s 20th Anniversary and the 21st Birthday Party at the farm. The experience was nothing short of fantastic! Not only did we do 2 totally different types of jobs but I learned absolutely loads about preparing a pig on a spit and how to score it once inside the machine as well as how to string the legs so nothing could come loose during the cooking process. Once we started cooking together the lift on the crackling and the blistering process was also a wonder to behold and when finished the pig with the head on looked absolutely amazing too. I was also impressed with the ease you have with your golf club client and they seemed to just leave everything to you and I could tell that they had total confidence in your ability to produce an amazing hog roast for 150 guests. I have been to many hog roasts myself but without doubt this was the most professional one I have seen and when we carried the pig into the room on a carving stand, this was very, very impressive. Thank you for also showing me how to carve and it was interesting to see how you comfortably carved 150 plated meals from a 65 kilo pig. The job the next day was as you said it would be - totally different and now cooking in a tray and serving 100+ guests as well as serving Jacket Potatoes with the oven lid was brilliant too. I particularly liked the way you spent your time advising me how to foil the pig and I couldn’t believe you could produce crackling around 1in thick, which by the way was delicious. Mixing the dripping with the cooked stuffing was to die for and everyone was very happy, with many of them coming back 2 or 3 times for more! I think the most important thing was to spend all weekend with you and your advice and time spent together was not only really appreciated, but I now feel totally confident that Crisp Crackling Pigs will be a very professional hog roast company in the Milton Keynes area with your invaluable advice. Thanks again Steve and I will let you know how I get on with my next few jobs. Absolutely Brilliant! Thanks again, I’ll be in touch…David
I was a Chef in the RAF for 25 years, with extensive catering experience. I was Regiment Chef for 3 Squadron based in Northern Ireland and I was regularly used to feeding between 150 and 300 personnel on a daily basis. When I was stationed in The Gulf I was part of a very busy catering team and we often fed up to 1700 people at every meal during the course of each day. On Air Days it wasn’t unusual to feed up to 2000 people per day. With this vast experience I was always keen to offer catering once I left the RAF and I was recommended to Steve and his team through my funding team up here in Saltburn. Steve helped me prepare cash flow forecasts and breakdown costs of various Hog Roast functions and with his extensive support, I was able to raise the necessary finance by providing a business plan of strength and depth. Steve also offered the service of cooking with me at the busy street market in Saltburn and he came across on 2 occasions and helped prepare the pig, showed me his diamond-scoring tips as well as advice on cooking and carving too. I found this support invaluable in the early days and this has really helped me to establish my business. Since then I have purchased an Elite machine, hog tray, trailer and BBQ plates and I definitely will be purchasing more equipment for this season. I cannot sing Steve’s praises highly enough and if you are starting in the hog roast business for the first time, then make sure that you give him a call. I’m certainly glad I did!
