• The pig box

    We got us a pig box.  La Caja China, the Cuban microwave. A hole in the ground without the hole.

    It’s a box with a grate that holds the fire on top, a roaster. Supposedly it’ll cook a 100# pig in a few hours. Well, maybe, if it doesn’t rain and you don’t peek.

    We did a couple of 8# shoulders today; I was guessing an hour a pound and considering the rain and peeking I was dead-on.  The peeking was because I’d fried a temp probe early on.

    It’s not BBQ but it’s mighty good eats. I’ll p9st a pic when we’re all relatively decent.
