A Brief History of Pig Roasting Pig roasting is a tradition among Latin Americans, particularly those from Cuba. One of the most popular occasions for pig roasting is Christmas Eve or Noche Buena in Latin America. Many Latin Americans who emigrated to the United States brought this tradition along with them, resulting in its popularity in areas with large Latin populations, like Miami.
History of La Caja China
Back in 1985, our founder was roasting a pig for a family barbecue when his father mentioned that he had seen a roasting box in Cuba that could get the job done in half the time. First used by Chinese rail workers in Cuba, these Chinese roasting boxes fulfill their promise. Our founder got to work right away creating his version of the classic Chinese smoker oven, resulting in the thriving business we have today. La Caja China means "Chinese box" in Spanish, hence our name.
