We Call it "Porky"
So, here is grilldave's new pig roasting box...or turkey roasting box, or chicken roasting box. It takes 16 lbs of charcoal to get it going. Bobby Flay showed up to challenge the inventor to a roast-pig "throwdown". (see below)
We will be roasting a pig the weekend of September 20th. I bet you wanna come over. It's my in-laws birthday party that weekend...so a great reason to celebrate with a whole pig, apple in the mouth and all! My kids and grandkids will be here as well. I can hardly wait.

Throwdown with Bobby Flay Episode BT0207
Cuban Roast Pork:
When Roberto Guerra moved to Miami from Cuba, he found a city passionate about all things Cuban, especially the food. He helped his father start a successful catering company and together they developed an ingenious roasting vessel called La Caja China. Roberto has invited Food Network to participate in a big outdoor Cuban BBQ, where he’ll use La Caja China to cook his renowned Cuban Roast Pork. It’s marinated in a tangy mojo, and cooked till crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside. But Roberto has no idea that an uninvited guest – Bobby Flay -- is rolling into town with his own Caja China and a challenge to a Roast Pork Throwdown! At this party, the warm flavors of Cuba are spiced with heated competition.
