When it comes to whole suckling pig, there is no finer meat in the world than the traditional Spanish Cochinillo.
The soft and tender meat literally melts in the mouth whilst the crispy crackling will delight the senses with every forkful of this incredible delicacy. Unlike many of the commercially reared animals that you will find elsewhere, our whole suckling pigs are always kept with their mothers up to a maximum of 21 days. This is the only farming method that stays true to the traditional practices from which the name suckling pig was derived. Keeping things natural also delivers meat with the finest flavour and texture.
You do not need to be a master chef to create a dish to die for when you use one of our prime piglets. Each one will arrive at your door ready to roast in the oven, allowing you to relax and look forward to the feast ahead. You will receive one frozen whole suckling pig, delivered on ice pads. If you are not using it straight away, store in the freezer. If you are, then you will need to thaw it in the fridge for at least 24 hours before cooking.
Each whole suckling pig weighs between 4 and 5 kilos and measures between 40-45cm in length, so don’t worry, it will fit in any conventional oven.
The best way to cook Cochinillo asado is in a wood-fired an oven for friends and family, the results will be incredible. Take your whole suckling pig out the refrigerator and pat dry the pig all over to remove any moisture created during the defrosting process. Allow the suckling pig to reach room temperature for 2 hours before cooking. Cook in a pre-heated Fuego oven at 180°C for 3 hours.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WEIGHTS CAN VARY FROM SUCKLING PIG TO SUCKLING PIG, SO EXPECT A SLIGHT VARIATION ON THE THE WEIGHT OF YOUR WHOLE SUCKLING PIG.

“Our Fuego wood oven has transformed our restaurant! As a piece of kit, it is extremely versatile and controllable, allowing us to roast all of our meats and vegetables in the wood burning oven as well as using it as a charcoal grill during service. The flavour of everything coming out of the Fuego clay pizza oven is incredible due to the amazing smoky, charred tones added to the smell and taste of everything that’s cooked in it. It is not expensive to run as all the kiln-dried wood we use heats the wood fired pizza oven pretty quickly and it retains its temperature really well, only needing to add logs to the fire a few times over the course of service.”
“We wanted a traditional wood oven that ticked lots of boxes, for us it had to be made of brick for the authentic feel, have amazing functionality and great quality. Our Fuego clay pizza oven ticks them all. Our pizza nights are such a fantastic feature for the guests that stay in our holiday cottages and it’s a great way of bringing friends and family together for making those special memories. Highly recommended”
“The traditional methods used within its construction and the unrivalled ability to retain heat have thoroughly impressed us. It has been a welcome addition to our BBQ and live music events. We cannot recommend the Fuego brand enough and it has been extremely popular with our chefs and customers alike.”
