Initial review - INCREDIBLE!
1. Easy to assemble
2. Easy to use
3. Delicious output
So I will take you through a pictorial of my first meal, made with the LaCaja China
First off - I made a pork shoulder.
I injected with a marinade made mostly of butter, brown sugar and some secrete spices.
After I injected it, I brushed it with the mixture.
Going forward I don't recommend brushing the extra on the outside of the meat . The sugar charred, pretty bad, but don't worry the meat inside the crust was awesome!
After I injected my meat and put it in the LaCaja China Roasting Box, I put the lid and charcoal rack back on, and spread a bag of Kingsford Charcoal evenly across the top of the cooker
Then I squirted some Kingsford Orderless Lighter Fluid on my Charcoals and let it soak in for a few minutes.
After I got my coals going, I set my timer for 2.5 hours.
Then I just waited.
You do not want to open the lid until the cooking time is over.
It is that easy!
So I sat down and watched some Football.
Unfortunately we didn't get the Steeler Game here!
Like I said the brown sugar charred a bit, but the meat in side was perfect!
Nice and Juicy and very tender!
My family and neighbors loved it!
Of coarse they wanted to know what's next!
I really enjoyed using the LaCaja China.
I got great pork, while I enjoyed the football games.
I will warn you, when you set this up in your driveway, be ready to field questions from your neighbors and people driving by.
I have a lot more friends in the neighborhood, after the arrival of my LaCaja China!
