La Caja China Pig Roast - First Timer Advice Needed

CFByrne | Mar 30, 2014 08:27 AM

So I've been enlisted to roast a pig for Easter! We'll be doing it down in Key Largo / Tavernier at my sister's house.

Maybe about 15 - 20 people, so we don't need anything giant.

I have no equipment whatsoever. The La Caja China process sounds great, but as I said, I don't have one.

Any ideas for alternate plans (Having someone ELSE make it is NOT the option I want, as the whole idea is to do this ourselves).

I am pretty sure I can get the pig from the Sunshine Cuban Market right around MM 90, I will be verifying that today.

We can't dig a hole in the ground as it is p-rock which would require dynamite or stronger.

I wonder if someone down there rents La Caja boxes.

There's no shortage of advice on the web of course... this is a detailed step by step for example...
