I ordered the "La Caja China" directly from the manufacturer's website a few days before we had an Oktoberfest party at my house with 150+ guests. We couldn't find a caterer that would supply us with a whole roasted pig so I decided to roast one myself using the "Chinese Box". Unreal how easy it was! Exactly the way it was described and in little less than 4 hours of cooking time. Try that on a spit! The pig was the hit of the party and I had several requests from my friends to do another one. Make sure to ask your butcher to butterfly the pig for you; otherwise it won't fit into the box. The result will make you look like a master chef!

All in all a great device. I am very glad I purchased it and look forward to future roasts now that I have my first pig roast under my belt. All my guests loved the meat and everyone really enjoyed seeing "how this box thing works."

One item that is confusing and that I wished I'd understood better beforehand is the description around the weight limits of the box. The documentation from La Caja China talks in live weight but neither my butcher nor anyone else I spoke with was familiar with what that meant. I called La Caja China (who were extremely helpful and nice) to ask what the 60-pound butchered pig I ordered would mean in terms of live weight and they suggested it would be about 90-95 pounds. What this meant to me is that my trial run of a "small" 60-pound pig was actually almost maxing out what the box could do. Perhaps this is a regional thing but it threw me for a bit.

Lastly, there are two minor annoyances I have about the box. The first is the handles on the grate and ash pans come off far too easily. A more secure connection system would be appreciated. The second is I had to go online to read other people's blogs to successfully assemble the device. A word of warning: If you feel you need to grab your drill, you just need to loosen all the bolts and then the holes will line up.

I purchased my first La Caja China (model #2) a couple of years ago, and I was amazed at how simple it is to use to create an awesome roast pig. As a private chef, I've done pork shoulders, packer briskets, whole lambs, and even whole salmon inside the box, and I've always been happy with the results.

Between the fantastic product, tons of available accessories, and stellar customer service, La Caja China get's an A+ in my book!

We raise heritage breed pigs and wanted a special way to prepare them for events. I'd seen these on food network and other cooking shows and we decided to try one and see if it works "as advertised" = a perfectly cooked pig with crispy skin in about 4 hours.

Our first run was for my wife's birthday on New Year's Eve and it was a balmy 25 degrees when we lit the charcoal. After 4 hours and 25 minutes from inserting the pig, we had it on the table and is was exactly as advertised. I made 3 dipping sauces and had done some injecting (an injector came with the box) and everyone loved it! Our pig was headless (for my wife) and hanging dry weighed 44#.

This is a great product and practically idiot proof. The only minor challenges involved assembly. If you know something about tools and have a few large clamps you'll be done in about an hour getting it all together.

One happy surprise was the cleaning...there was a significant amount of rendered lard in the bottom. Enough that next time I'll clarify and store it for other uses. For our first experience I just used a little hot water to rinse after a very gentle scrape of the inside with a stick.

We'll be curious to see how durable this is...can it stand up to monthly use for years??? But, assuming I can get 15 uses from it I think it's a great value and cuts a pig roast time down by about 12 hours.

Purchased a new Model 2 directly from the company. Shipped very quickly and all parts and instructions were nicely packaged. Everything was going well during the assembly until I noticed that the screws on the handle side of the box would not align with the sides. If I loosened the bottom section screws then side - end screws aligned but then there would be a gap on the bottom. If I tightened bottom then there would be a gap on the sides. Long story short...I had to re-drill slid frame holes to align with sides of box. Pain in the B*** but it looks like it will work. I'm on the west coast and this product came from Miami so I didn't even bother dealing with company being that I am a wood worker and have all the tools to make things fit. But if you are not a wood worker or handy-person, I would think twice about ordering this product until they work on their manufacturing quality control.

Roasting a pig with the Model 2 may be easier than cooking steaks or burgers on a grill! It is definitely easier than roasting a turkey in an oven. It is what is says it is.... a very easy way of roasting a pig. We did exactly what the easy instructions said to do and the result was FANTASTIC! There really aren't any "gotchas", gimmicks, or missing elements. We used regular charcoal briquettes that we bought at Sam's Club. The pig we got was bigger than we ordered, so we could only cook 1/2 at a time. We used dry rub on one half and injected marinade into the second half. Both were very good. Some folks preferred the dry rub, I preferred the marinade. The only thing we will do differently is we will make certain that we get a pig that is sized so that the whole thing fits. Using the Model 2 for a pig roast will become at least an annual event in my family.
