    You are correct. Spit - can be a verb with that exact definition. It's past participle is: spitted.

    The hog is/was spitted -- (present/past passive).

    The definition and verb forms are at this linke: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/spit?s=t , under spit², about halfway down the page. You have to go past spit¹.

    spat - is the past participle for spit¹, with the other meaning some others are referencing.

    Those claiming that spit (to pierce something), can only be a noun referring to a tool that does that for meat are mistaken.

    The passive voice is form by using BE as a helping verb (in any tense/aspect combo) with the past participle of the main verb. to be spitted -- passive voice.
