    That would be pig roaster...suitable for whole hog, goat, sheep/lamb.

  3. No, I know how to cook whole hog in the ground or on BBQ pit with gas or wood,this is the size of a dormitorie refrigerator with two racks for ducks,rabbits, squirrels ect. With heat source on top in slide tray
  4. Smoke is correct. The Cajun Microwave is a roaster. They are basically like a large outdoor dutch oven. They come in sizes from large enough for a decent size pig to small enough for turkey.

    Smoke it up
  5. Can you smoke with that type device, not as a roaster, but as a smoker
  6. I have never seen one that could be used for smoking. They are not designed to circulate air inside the cooking chamber.
  7. Thanks, was wondering if I built one,using fan out bottom do y'all think it will work??
  8. I am sure it could be made to work. You would have to introduce a smoke source also.

    Smoke it up

    La Caja China is a commercial made Cajun microwave. Somewhere on the net there is a guy that rigged a smoke generator to pump smoke into the box while cooking. So yes it can be done.

    I have a La Caja China and have mounted a Smoke Pistol on it and it works great.  I don't use it as just a smoker but while roasting  pig, I add smoke to enhance the flavour.
