Puerto Ricans love their pork, and lechón, or roast suckling pig, is the crown prince of pork dishes. It's the popular choice for any large gathering, and certain restaurants draw lines of hungry families when they break out their lechón. It's a time consuming process to prepare, but when done right, a good lechón delivers a smoky, delicious, carniverous feast.
