Madhavi asked:
<<< So, have you ever cooked a whole pig for a feast? How did you cook

Here are some files in the Florilegium which might be of use.
In the FOOD-MEATS section:
whole-pig-msg     (66K)  4/18/05    Info. on roasting a whole pig.  
Cooking-Piggy-art  (5K)  9/27/01  A humorous adventure cooking a pig.

<<< I am frothing at the mouth to bring out a whole pig during feast  
to present to the Crowns. >>>

For presentation info, perhaps this file would be of use:
pig-heads-msg     (22K) 10/20/08    Cooking, displaying or otherwise  
                                        with pig's heads. Real and  

It sounds like it is already dressed out, so you may not have to do  
much along those lines, but this article in the ANIMALS section still  
might be of use:
pig-to-sausag-art (17K)  8/31/98    From pig to sausage by Mordonna
