A few weeks ago, I posted about my clogged toilet dilemma that went from being a minor issue to a nerve-wracking disaster in a matter of days. It’s an eye-opening moment for me that made me realized how important it is to never overlook a plumbing issue no matter how small it may seem, and to let the right people handle the problem.
I would give this advice to anyone, particularly to someone I know, who has brought a home in South Florida. He is a close friend of mine who emailed me last night asking for an advice for his home’s plumbing problem. I’d gladly say this to him: “Dude, you don’t have to spend hours after hours learning how to do repairs. Just hire a professional plumber in West Palm Beach.” That’s it, short and exact. He should take my word for it, so he wouldn’t have to endure the same terrible experience that I had to go through to learn any better.
I know a lot of men know how to fix minor issues, like myself. Some can even perform complicated plumbing repairs. If you prefer to carry out DIY plumbing repairs or installation in your home, I guess that’s fine. As long as you make sure that you know what you are doing and do everything right. And of course, if anything goes wrong, don’t blame it on anybody.
To my old pal Antony, if you are reading this (which I am sure you are because I plan on sending you the link to this post) go and hire Plumbers 911 for your plumbing trouble instead of going about asking all of your buddies for plumbing tips. They have highly-trained, licensed techs offering drain cleaning in West Palm Beach and other reasonably priced services.
Roasting a whole pig can be daunting for a first timer, which is why I’ve come up with this easy guide to the perfect pig roast with your La Caja China Grill box. Check out this easy-to-follow pig worksheet!
Carefully put your whole pig in between the two racks of your box, but be careful not to poke holes in the skin while you do so
There are 4 S-Hooks that you can use to keep the pig in place. Place the rack handles away from the pig.
Insert the drip tray in to the box, and then put the pig, rib-side up inside.
Use the Ash Pan to cover the box and secure the charcoal grid over it.
You can now add charcoal onto the charcoal grid and ignite it. Spread the hot coals evenly inside the box before lighting it.
Cooking time starts the moment that you light your coals, so keep an eye on the timer. Add more charcoal to the grilling box after an hour, and repeat this over the next 3 hours. Read this article to learn about whole hog cooking times.
Remove the collected ash by shaking off the charcoal grid after three hours, then flip the pig over to crisp the skin. This is made simple with the La Caja China patented system, so just slide the lift rack as you pull it upward.
Slice small holes into the skin of your pig with a knife to release excess fat and help the skin crisp.
The final stretch is to cover your roasting box with the ash pan and charcoal grid, but don’t add anymore charcoal to the box.
Finally, keep an eye on the crispness of the skin by checking every 10 minutes. You know how you like your pig skin crackled, so when it is to your liking, your pig is ready to eat.
