Rent a Pig Roasting Box in NJ
Does anyone know where I can rent a Pig Roasting Box like the Caja China or Caja Asadora in North Jersey, Bergen area? or anyone willing to rent theirs to me. I have been wanting to do a pig roast for a while and saw some videos using Caja China.
The rental cost is around $100.00 and can hold a larger pig than the China Grill. It has a motor to rotate the pig and is rather heavy. For a smaller pig, it may make more sense to purchase the Caja

thanks bifpocaroba and MRG58.
I am handy but I I have a really small backyard so I think renting or buying. Plus $100 is pretty reasonable.
I really wanted to try the roasting box, but after re-reading this link http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/791095
I see the skin came out super crisp, and looked pretty awesome. But, if I can get a few friends to chip in for the La Caja China, I think I will take that route.
bifpocaroba, how did your pig roast come out? Do you think it came out better then on a regular roaster?
Thanks for the info.
That Caja China was a breeze. A person that I spoke to has told me to get a smaller pig and throw in a pork shoulder or two instead of getting such a large pig. The pig should be butterflied. Just make sure you get a strong marinade injector because the pig is tough on the outside. Then put a rub on it. Place it in the rack/cage (very easy) then place in box.... put charcoal on top pan and let sit for a few hours. It gets hot. About an before you serve, flit it so the skin is facing up so it gets crispy.
It's so easy and very good. I was thinking about going in on a Caja box with some friends.
I got my pig at.

If you find grilling your own pig too challenging and costly, you may consider The Barbrgue Pit in Bergenfield. Their menu lists whole pig costs of $180 to $195 based on sizes ranging from 28 to 42 lbs. We sampled their small pig at a recent party and found the meat excellent with crisp skin.
