Yeah,they look great on TV, but they are kind of spendy for something so specific.
Still,I figured I'd buy a small one if I got some positive feedback on DC.I still might.

I've saw one in Napa Style Magazine - I immediately said - I WANT THAT! But I say that about a lot of things!

If you think you'll use it - get it! I can't imagine it would be a mistake, unless it goes unused.

Yea, and the sad part is when you do push it too far she's going to hurt you where it counts - she's going to get "custody" of all those things! ...well, maybe not the "hair" stuff!

Juiceman Juicer? See, I want that too!

A friend cooked up some cajun pork in one. It was terrific!

never heard of one, had to go look it up:
La Caja China Box Pig Roasting Grills Whole Pig Roasting Grills Pig Cooker Grills
wow! i want one for all my big grill-fiends (the bf, my dad, etc). and hey, why not? at around $300, it's certainly no crazier than the gajillion-dollar belgian copper pans i was looking at earlier today! if you're the kind of guy who's always hosting on your backyard, go for it.

Quite a while back while working in southen Florida, I went to a party with a Cuban friend. They had something that looked almost identical to that. Cooked a whole pig on it and it was very good. I was told later that the best Cuban pork sandwiches are made with pork cooked on it. I had forgotten all about the thing till i saw this post. Good memories!
