REVIEW: recipe rating
I made this after I came home from Kauai and it was great! It doesn't get any easier. Salt it, liquid smoke, slow cook all day and enjoy. I am having a party and using it as the center piece, it can be used for sandwiches or plate lunch. I am making it the day before - your house will remind you of a luau!!

REVIEW: recipe rating
I used this same recipe for years and recently misplaced my card. I'm so happy to have found it again! Whenever I hold my luau every summer we make this and there is NEVER any left at the end of the party! Even people who don't usually eat pork LOVE it! It takes me back to when I lived in Hawai... :)
