Locally Made Rocket Pots Speed up Boiling Process
The inventor of the Cajun Rocket Pot has enjoyed backyard crawfish boils and barbeques for years at the family home in Madisonville, LA. When he became tired of crawfish boils being held up waiting for water to boil, he set out to create a more efficient boiling pot.
An electronics specialist by profession, he began tinkering in his garage with different ideas to increase the absorption of heat during the cooking process. Thousands of man hours later, the ingenious new pot was finally being produced in Covington.
The Cajun Rocket Pot is available at Caire Hotel and Restaurant Supply.
