We are now proud to announce that we will be importing another Authentic BBQ into Australia....

Introducing the "La Caja China" Authentic Cuban Style Roasting Box manufactured in Miami USA

Image

We have had Chefs approach us in Australia asking for us to import the La Caja China, so on my recient trip to the USA I flew down to Miami & visited with La Caja China.

While I was at the factory, they showed me how to cook the most amazing Pork Belly I have ever eaten, the total cooking time was 3 hours and the flavor of the Pork that was trapped inside the Roasting box was stunning & the Pork Crackling was insane to say the least.

Here are a couple of photos I took on my iPhone & I have posted a video of the "Crunch" as the knife cut through the Pork Crackling on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=797430903657273&set=vb.401659396567761&type=2&theater

Neat bit-o-kit! I have heard of these cookers. The wood construction makes me nervous..but apparently it works very well.

Interesting but they seem to use a lot of heat beads [then again you are cooking a whole pig] I would love to see a smaller one

Loss of rising heat and turning those heatbeads into radiant heat that is under them is hard.

to up the efficiency (but possibly have to adjust fuel used or placement) you could have a sheet of metal or foil placed above the coals (still should have airflow) to re-radiate heat downwards. this would probably reduce fuel usage however im not sure if thats even an issue untill ive used one.

I will try to come up with a relative cost per hour for a cook once i have a play to see if the cost is something that even needs to be worried about. If the results are what dave says they are then i doubt that fuel cost is an issue.

Hi Mate, how are you?

We are airfreighting over the following 2 models to gauge interest at Taste of Melbourne & Taste of New Zealand ( both on 13 - 16th of November )

Image
The #2 La Caja China is Length: 121.9cm / 48" Width: 60.9cm / 24" Height: 60.9cm / 24" Inside Depth: 32.4cm / 12 3/4" and can cook up to a 50 kg Pig (live weight) This is the most popular Roasting box

Image
The #3 La Caja China is Length: 71.7cm / 28" Width: 36.8cm / 14 1/2" Height: 73.6cm / 29" Inside Depth: 22.2cm / 8 3/4"

Image

So based on these instructions cooking a Pig of under 22.6 kgs live weight ( & I am assured that they are actually very exact )

Start with 8.2 kgs

after 1 hour add 3.6 kgs

after 1 hour add 3.6 kgs

after half hour add 4.5 kgs

So 20 kgs of charcoal to cook a whole pig at a cost of $20 - $30

You should come and see us at Taste :D

Cheers, Dave

That's not terrible fuel usage at all... looking at the sizes, I'd probably want a #3 for home.

Any reason they seem to prefer briquettes over lump Dave? Is it for consistency?

I agree Mate, also you can cook on the top at the same time with the optional "Top Grill"

I'm not sure, its a question I'm going to ask them, will post once I know.

Cheers, Dave

Brickets make more ash which I would think creates a better contact surface to transfer heat downwards.

That would be my call.
Also, not bad on charcoal usage. The instructions are quite specific which is great
