Cool I cooked a whole lamb today!

It was 40 lbs. It was cooked in a La Caja China. Total cooking time was 50mins. It was little over cooked but WOW is was great. I marinated it in oregano and EVOO w/ garlic and rosemary for 2 days.

I forgot my camera. Sorry, it was beautiful.
I think I might do one more for New Years,

WHOLE LAMB!!!! The la caja china is great. 50 mins and it was slightly overccoked. I did not bring my meat thermometer with me.

So far I have done about 20 pigs, ALL took under 4 hours. I have done 17 chickens four times took 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours. I have done 8 butts in under 4 hours several times.

The LCC is great. I am glad I had acess to a walk in cooler to marinate the thing.

I did, and recognize it now from an A Bourdain travel show. Great if you are feeding the masses.

I saw one being used on TV cooking for a large group.

must've been a baby lamb, to be done in 50 minutes. Yes, that is possible
