La Caja China

Hey you guys ever seen this thing? www.lacajachina.com I saw it on an episode of Bobby Flay's BBQ Nation. It looks like it would be fun to mess around with, while drinking a few rum and cokes.

Los, while some have used it and reported great results for a roasted pig, I again state, it ain't bbq. No smoke. Now there were rumors that they
had an adaptor or something that would put some smoke in the box, but
I don't know much about it....without an outflow I'd be concerned about
soot building up, etc.

Also, you will use a ton of charcoal to cook that pig. That said, it
apparently makes a juicy, tender roast pig.

I saw the same show last year. Kind of neat.

Yes, I know it isn't BBQ, just roasted pig.

Tyler Florence also featured one in a show, and if I'm not mistaken,
former board member Susan Z got one. Nothing wrong with roasted pig
at all. I'd liken it more to a crockpot than a microwave though.

Finally, A good use for Kingsford charcoal. Let the bashing begin.

I was at a wedding last year and they cooked a pig on one. Wasn't bad at all, but like cappy said, no smoke flavor. It also cooked the pig in about 3 hours, I think.

I don't know.... the picture reminds me of the cart Eric Idle was pushing through the village in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, yelling "Bring out your dead!" I never realized he was going to cook them.
