[La Caja China Cooking] is a book of recipes that gets high marks for creativity. At the same time, it is easy to follow and there is nothing that requires a desperate search to an out-of-the-way International market to fill out the ingredients for a recipe.
If you become so fortunate as to add a La Caja China to your arsenal (or, if you already have one) then this is a must have book for you. It's like the manual that they didn't include with the box. --Doug Mosley - NATIONAL BARBECUE NEWS, February 2011
From the Author
BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE JUST RELEASED... "La Caja China Party!" 13 chef-tested and fully-illustrated party themes. Insider tips and tricks, and over 80 bbq & grilling recipes for the La Caja China roasting box!
La Caja China, for all the pig-related press, is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment I've used in a lifetime of cooking and barbecue.
I can prepare everything from holiday dinners like St. Patrick's Day corned beef and Thanksgiving turkey; ethnic delights like Malaysian Satays and Italian porchetta sandwiches, to Kalua pig and Moroccan lamb. I can grill steaks, braise chickens, and roast prime-rib that rivals any restaurant, and do it all in my own backyard!
And, of course, I can roast melt-in-your-mouth whole pigs that send my guests into fits of gastronomical joy.
Even more importantly, I can prepare these dishes for crowds that would normally require a smoke house, a four-foot deep pit dug in my yard, multiple gas grills, and several full-size ovens. Not only that, but I can do it anywhere, anytime!
La Caja China isn't just about great barbecue and roasting, it's about friends and family, it's about creating memories, and... let's be honest... it's about being "that guy" (or gal) who can make the dinner, holiday, or party, a memorable event.
I bought my first La Caja China to satisfy my obsession with barbecue toys (just ask my long-suffering wife, who has lived with the dozens of grills, barbecues, and cooking gadgets that fill our kitchen, patio, and garage!) I soon found that La Caja China replaced most of my beloved cooking styles in a single, simple, cooking box...and it's on wheels!
If you're looking for a means to roast, grill, bake, braise, smoke, or barbecue...look no further that La Caja China. Cook for a crowd on Model 1, 2 or the awesome new "Semi Pro" model, or create perfect dinners for you own family on Model #3.
If you find something that you can't cook on La Caja China, please send me at email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to the challenge!

There is no Cuban, Chinese, or Filipino pig recipe (but a great Cuban rub) and I would consider those recipes essential. I'd never do brisket, ribs or fish in it, unless it was a couple of whole king salmon, or a halibut side. I much prefer my smokers, and have taken to smoking turkey for the holidays, but I'm intrigued with the use here, and for lamb. There is a VERY good section for using the top grilling section, sauces, rubs, marinades and sides what I consider the saving grace for this book. ( I roasted cauliflower in the coals first use, Came out great, NOT in the recipe book tho)
The sauces and rubs are solid, but any I've used I have or would add my own tweaks to, since I like lots of garlic and mustard in my rubs and sauces. I guess it's a good beginners guide and reference as long as you expand your horizons beyond just this book.
