Food Field Trips » La Caja China Roast Pig
Nothing brings people together quite like a Pig Roast. We held a Hoedown in rain and snow yet everyone still showed because they knew that they'd be rewarded with the Pig Roast bounty. Watch Will Gilson of Garden at the Cellar show you how to prep the pig as well as how to roast it in a cool must-have man-size gadget called La Caja China.
Will Gilson is the chef of Garden at the Cellar in Cambridge, MA, and consulting chef at The Herb Lyceum in Groton, MA. Both restaurants are very different in nature, but collectively they share the same vision: Local, sustainable, fresh and seasonal food, cuisine and ingredients. Will’s interest in cooking has been evident from his early childhood years but took a serious turn in 1997, when he was 15 years old and apprenticed under Chef Charles Draghi of Boston’s North End Marcuccio’s. Will spent part of his college sophomore year in a 3-month internship at London’s Lanesborough Hotel under Chef Paul Gayler. Will’s culinary resume includes working with John Mathieson of Silks at the Stonehedge Inn, as well as having been an invited guest chef at Marcuccios Restaurant. Will is a 2005 graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI, with degrees in Food Service Management and Culinary Arts.

I now know how to flatten the pig and I'm glad you showed wiring the cage together. I just couldn't see how the four s hooks they provided were going to hold 60 lbs. Have you ever tried cooking ribs in the la caja china? I would like to try, but I don't know if I should use rib racks or the cage. THX
