Birthdays only come once a year, and milestone birthdays only happen once in a lifetime. It just so happens that I recently passed one of those milestone birthdays and ticked over into the big 30’s. Some people like to spend these occasions relaxing on a beach, or sulking about father time catching up with them, but I saw this as a prime opportunity to expand my barbecue horizons into a category of cooking that every great pitmaster must dabble in. So I treated myself to a pre-birthday present by purchasing a La Caja China hog roasting box and set out on my first pig roast!
Recently we got our hands on a Maverick Laser Surface Thermometer to test out and provide our thoughts. Of course we wouldn’t want to dangle a brand new piece of equipment in front of our readers without giving you a chance to win one, so we also have another thermometer that we’ll send off to one lucky reader! Keep reading and we’ll let you know how you can get your hands on one of these guys.
