Experience using a Caja China?

Night Owl Sep 18, 2007 02:58 PM

Has anyone used a Caja China -- the roasting system used traditionally for whole pigs, but now with various cuts of meat or whole chickens? Interested in hearing from you, if so. Am thinking about buying one (not for a whole pig), but wondering how involved the whole thing is...

    Do a search on caja china and you'll see others.

      I don't have any experience using a Caja China, but if you can locate the episod of Throwdown (I think) where Bobby Flay challenged someone famous for cooking pork in a Caja China, it might be worthwhile. It looked simple.

        I saw it, which was got me interested in it all over again. Thanks!
