Roasting Box Promotion, September 2007

In addition to our traditional Louisiana food catering services, is proud to make available to the public since 2000 the most traditional and authentic “Cajun Microwave” available for purchase. The Cajun Microwave is a cypress roasting box designed to cook large pieces of meat and other items, including whole roast pigs (the famous Cajun dish known as “conchon du’ lait”), turkeys, lamb, chickens, deer, beef, vegetables and other items. Above are Robert Moreau (the “crawfishguy” in background) and late friend Gary Groesch. To right, a 50 lb pig and two turkeys inside the standard 4’x2’ Cajun Microwave.

This is a traditional Cajun cooking device originally designed as a "technological leap" over the outdoor open fire pit for cooking roast pig and other large pieces of meat.

How does it work?

The Cajun Microwave roasting box is just that: a roasting oven made of wood (cypress). Meat, vegetables and other items are placed inside the box on a metal grate that sits about one inch off the floor of the box. The heating source—which can be either charcoal or wood--is placed on top of the steel lid/ tray that covers the box, thereby heating the food items from above. Cooking temperature should range between 225 and 275 degrees farienheit. This type of intense heat in an enclosed cypress box results in a very crispy outside skin and very juicy inside meat. All grease drips towards one end of the box and out through two holes in the floor (use a catch pan to eliminate any mess). The floor can be lined with heavy duty tin foil before each use (minimizing the cleaning needed). If the box does get grease on it, simply wash out with hot soapy water and let dry. Rub the steel tray and grate down with oil after each use and store entire unit in a dry place. Options include a stainless steel lid and extension frame (increases depth of box by ~8i nches; should only be used when cooking very thick pieces of meat). Accessories, which can be purchased at your local hardware store, include a grill that sets on top of the lid for cooking burgers, hot dogs, chickens, etc. (so you can utilize the heat for such items while cooking meat inside the box as well), a charcoal ligher starter, and an ash removal tool to help manage ash in the lid.

Tax rate is 9% for in-state sales.
