A Hog Fry is a traditional Oklahoma Cherokee social meal in which large iron kettles are placed over open fires. The kettles are then filled with oil or lard. Piece of pork and then throw in the hot oil and fried until cooked.[1]

Hog fries are held regularly by tribal,[2][3] cultural[4][5] and church groups as well as by individual families.

The social aspect of cooking a whole hog at a Hog Fry is similar to the whole hog barbecue tradition of the Carolinas (but with a different method of cooking).
