Oven Kalua Pig

Wendell made this sometime last week. I didn't get to taste it until a few days later, but it was still ono.
The recipe is from What Hawaii Likes to Eat.

5 to 7 pounds pork butt
3 tbs. Hawaiian salt
1 tsp. liquid smoke
10 to 12 ti leaves, ribs removed

Cut 1-inch slits around pork and rub surface with salt; brush with liquid smoke. Wrap pork in ti leaves then tie with string. Wrap again in foil and seal tightly. Roast at 400 degrees for 3 hours or until done. Remove from pan and shred pork before serving.

Do you use the ti leaves and foil in the crockpot?

What does Ono mean?

Hi Serena, I don't really know how Betty does hers in the crockpot, but I think it' would probably be without the ti leaves and foil.

Debra, I didn't realize how many times the word "ono" appears here! It means "delicious" in Hawaiian.
