The Traditional Cuban Lechon Asado Roaster

This is the roasting box that cooks traditional Cuban roast pig until the meat is moist and tender and the skin is crispy—the hallmarks of authentic lechón asado. The roaster accommodates whole pigs up to 80 lbs. (dressed), charcoal is placed in a metal tray on top of the unit, and the coals emit radiant heat to the cooking chamber that’s lined with marine-grade aluminum. The radiant heat cooks the pig at a consistent 325° F and does not add smoky flavor, allowing the true flavor of pork to permeate and producing the crispy skin that Cubans endearingly refer to as "chicharrón." Two chrome-plated steel racks latch around the pig, allowing cooks to lower it into the box, lift it out, and flip it over. The roaster also cooks up to eight whole chickens, three turkeys, or six slabs of ribs and comes with a culinary syringe for injecting marinade into meat, a built-in thermometer, and a grate for traditional grilling above the charcoals. With a polished diamond-plate aluminum exterior, aluminum legs, and a drain valve that removes rendered fat. 60" L x 25" W x 39" H. (120 lbs.)
