The secret to perfect roasting

Recipes and tips for using La Caja China to prepare fabulous dishes from around the world!
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.

La Caja China, the Cuban roasting box, has become the toast of food writers and celebrity gourmets, including Food Network’s THROWDOWN Chef, Bobby Flay.
In La Caja China Cooking: The Secret to Perfect Roasting, we took a gastronomic tour of America.
With this new collection of recipes, your La Caja China becomes a magic carpet, allowing you to take your friends and family to the far corners of the world, and experience the delicious wonders waiting for you there!
In every culture and country that we researched in gathering this collection, we found people who enjoyed gathering together with loved ones, lighting a fire, cooking meat over it (or under it), and eating together.
Not coincidentally, we think, these folks shared a common passion for life and laughter, as well.
In La Caja China World, we invite your taste buds to join us on a globe-trotting adventure with dishes like:
Grilled Tri-Tip & Chimichurri in Argentina
Whole Roast Pig & Coconut Rice in Bali
Roast lamb & Potatoes in Greece
Beef Short Ribs & Scallion Salad in Korea

What an amazing time, and what a great group of people!
Luckily, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, ’cause I got about 11 million words I could share on how cool Ribfest was!
Me & Ty!
Here’s a visual rundown of the weekend, starting on Friday with the interview shoot at Kenmore Studios, then lunch at the Weber Grill Restaurant, and the VIP reception that evening with Ty Pennington(who’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet!)
Saturday was all about Ribfest…a long, hot, awesome, amazing day with a bunch of great new friends, next-level BBQ, and a chance to play with some of the best grills on the market. My 5-burner Kenmore with the side burner was the bomb!
Robyn, George, and I.
Saturday night, wilted, limp and still grinning, we returned to the hotel for one last dinner at the Sugar Toad restaurant (so good!) and to say our goodbyes. As George put it, it was like the last day at outdoor school (except for the martinis).
I can’t wait for the next opportunity to grill with these guys!
Oh, and I threw together some Dragon Claw appetizers for the crowd, which seemed to go over well. (They’re wrapped in bacon…go figure!)
So, I had a LOT of people ask me about Grilling is Happiness, and the blog, this weekend, and I guess, for me, what makes it so amazing is this…there are tons of places you can go online and get recipes, advice and grilling tips from “one guy’s or gal’s” perspective…but not many that bring together the level of experience, passion, and expertise from such a wide range of outdoor cooking experts as you’ll find at Grilling is Happiness.
That’s what makes it unique, you can be a trophy-winnin’ pit-master, or a have never picked up a pair of tongs…because there’s something there for anyone and everyone who loves to grill, or wants to learn!
I talk a lot about La Caja China, the Cuban pig roasting box. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the magic box, here are a couple of videos with celebrity chef Bobby Flay that show La Caja China makin’ the magic happen!
