4 to 5 pound pork butt
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
2 1/2 tablespoons Hawaiian salt (or regular sea salt)

Preheat oven to 325deg F. Rub pork with liquid smoke and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the Hawaiian salt. Wrap pork in foil and seal completely. Place pork in roasting pan and bake for 5 hours. After baking, shred pork, sprinkle with the remaining Hawaiian salt. Makes 10 servings.

For a more authentic taste wrap the seasoned pork butt in banana leaves (found at Asian or Mexican grocers). If I can find Hawaiian ti leaves I use this also. Discard the leaves after cooking. I also rub some mashed garlic on the roast for extra flavor.

I've made this recipe, actually from a different site. I poke holes in the roast, cover with liquid smoke and smokey sea salt (whole foods.) I put in the slow cooker 5 hours on high, then shred it. I put it back in the slow cooker after shredding for 1 hour on LOW. It soaks up all the juices, and tastes awesome. Also, I use a 3 lb pork roast. Try it. It's nice and juicy if you shred it.

Follow up ... no need to bake this in an oven. Take a serving fork to the pork (we use the cut called a boston butt which is the cut directly above the shoulder) and cover with the salt. Then cover with the liquid smoke. Put in a slow cooker for 8 to 14 hours - usually the first hour on high. The resulting liquid is NOT pure fat as you might expect. Don't throw it away - save it and add to the shredded meat just before serving. I recently cooked two 6 lb butts in a 7 Qt CrockPot for 12 hours with excellent results. Best to use Hawaiian sea salt for best flavor!

We've made this several times. Cooking time varies but have used 12 to 14 hours on low. It's always EXCELLENT! Friends and family are always asking for the recipe. And it is soooo easy! Great on rolls or on soft taco shells.

Simple recipe w/ delicious flavor PLUS the leftovers freeze well! I made several meals from this one recipe--Kalua Pork the first night, and then I used the leftovers for pulled pork barbecue sandwiches, BBQ pork quesadillas, and mandarin pork pizzas. GREAT recipe!!
