La CAJA CHINA owners
How would you describe the flavor and texture of pork shoulders, rubbed traditionally, coming out of a la caja china vs a smoker.

I've always injected them with Mojo injection when using a Caja China so can't answer with direct experience. I can speculate that they would be juicy and tender like ones roasted in a high heat electric oven.

Just like a smoker as far as juiciness and texture. The Caja is trickier than a regular smoker to maintaining the correct temperature simply by the coals on top.

I run probes into the meat and box during the cook.

Mine lacked the smoky flavor, so I added a Smoke Pistol generator, just fine now.

I've only eaten Caja pork, never cooked with one, but would characterize what I've had as top notch roasted pork. At least what I've had did not have any "smoke" flavor I get with my smoker.

the caja china is a roasting box, follow the posted instructions and they'll be right around 165. so to get to internal 195+ to pull easily, it's tricky to get right without burning
