La Caja China
I've always wondered how I could roast an entire pig in backyard. Now I have the answer. With this roaster, I can roast a 100 pound pig in less than 4 hours. That is a lot of pig! It is made of wood, lined with aluminum, and includes charcoal pan and grid, large dripping pan, two stainless steel grill racks, one marinating syringe, and two handles. Mmmmm . . . I can almost taste the roast pork . . . or lamb . . . or turkey . . . .

It is called the Chinese Box (Caja China) because uses he cooking method used by Chinese people that immigrated to Cuba during the first half of the past century. There was a large Chinese population mainly in Havana.
I remember as a child to go to a Chinese party in Zanja Street (Havana Chinatown), and ate the most delicious roosted pig.
I hope this help.
Looks like something that Alton Brown would build (and probably has) from stuff he got at Home Depot. Also, why is the name in Spanish and why is it called a "Chinese Box"? So many questions, so few answers.
