That looks incredible.....can I be part of your family?! biggrin.gif I lived in Miami for 6 years for grad school in the 90s but only got to go to one pig roast...it was a group of first timers- while good it looked nothing like yours! One thanksgiving I did have mojo marinated turkey and it was amazing- thanks for posting that recipe- will definitely have to give that a try!

Sexy, it is just like a giant oven. It's the same premise with ever type of "caja china" out there. By the way, I could go for another piece of the chicharron right about now! icon_smile.gif

ale, thank you! The injector makes life a whole lot easier. I've messed with plenty of those gadgets throughout the years, but I've finally found one that not only works, but that is extremely well built.

Husker, thank you and you're welcome! I made six chicken quarters for dinner last night and used this marinade on them. My wife and kids are still licking their fingers! 241.png

Moikel, thank you! For side dishes, everyone communicates beforehand and they all bring something different. The typical traditional side dishes are rice and beans ("Moros y Cristianos"), sweet plantains ("Platanos Maduros"), Cuban bread ("Pan Cubano") and cassava with marinade ("Yuca Con Mojo").

rc, thank you and, yes, we are currently adopting! icon_biggrin.gif At least you were able to go to one of these pig roast gatherings, so you can relate. As for the turkey, that's a great idea! I may do one with this marinade injected into it and then deep fry it in peanut oil. Mmmm!
