Default Slow-Roasted Yucatecan Pig

I was watching the Rick Bayless cooking show and he was cooking a pig in a backyard pit. And it hit me! I don't need the pit I can just use the wood oven. Here's the link to the recipes:

It won't let me post a link so google on "rick bayless recipes" its under "main dishes"

Believe it or not the pickled onions were great and the hot pink color really added to the food. Had all the kids & grandkids (9) over for a great meal. I bought the Achiote Spice at a local Hispanic market and the bananna leaves at the Asian Market. When you make the spice with the lime juice it comes out bright/brillant red. I'd post pictures but I don't know how.

BTW: I had a big stainless steel pan made up for cooking in the oven. Its 1/2-inch smaller than the opening and 28-inches long. With lots of handles (I use welding gloves when its hot), a lid (with a handle) and the rack, it works great! Used it for two 20-lb turkeys at Thanksgiving.

Try the pork - its great!

I love all the Rick Bayless recipes. I highly reccommend his cookbooks. Really interesting stuff! I have done a similar recipe from one of his cookbooks. The Achiote is a very different flavor, savory, I Iike it...

wikepedia
Achiote (Bixa orellana) is a shrub or small tree from the tropical region of the American continent. The name derives from the Nahuatl word for the shrub, achiotl. It is also known as Aploppas, and its original Tupi name urucu. It is cultivated there and in Southeast Asia, where it was introduced by the Spanish in the 17th century. It is best known as the source of the natural pigment annatto, produced from the fruit. The plant bears pink flowers and bright red spiny fruits which contain red seeds. The fruits dry and harden to brown capsules.

The inedible fruit is harvested for its seeds, which contain annatto, also called bixin. It can be extracted by stirring the seeds in water. It is used to color food products, such as cheeses, fish, and salad oil. Sold as a paste or power for culinary use, mainly as a colour, it is known as "achiote", "annatto" or "pimentao doce". It is a main ingredient in the Mexican spice mixture recado rojo, or "achiote paste". The seeds are ground and used as a nearly flavorless but colorful additive in Latin American, Jamaican and Filipino cuisine. Annatto is growing in popularity as a natural alternative to synthetic food coloring compounds. It is an important ingredient of cochinita pibil the spicy pork dish made famous in the film Once Upon a time in Mexico.

This is a pic of the pork when it was done. This was before the new SS pan and I only did two shoulders to see how it would work out.

I tried to take a photo of the "Turkey Coffin" but I'll have to wait until daylight.
