Kalua PIG

Ingredients:
4-5 pound pork butt
2 tablespoons Hawaiian OR Kosher salt
2 tablespoons COLGIN NATURAL APPLE LIQUID SMOKE
1/2 head cabbage shredded
1 banana leaf (substitute 4-5 whole, unpeeled bananas)
4-6 ti leaves (substitute aluminum foil)

Instructions:
Trim any excess fat from the roast. Make several shallow long cuts along the roast or pierce liberally with a fork. So that the salt and liquid smoke can penetrate the meat. Rub with salt and liquid smoke. Wrap the roast with banana leaf or in the absence of same, place whole bananas on top of meat. Cut the ribs from the ti leaves and wrap over the banana leaf and wrap cabbage in the leaf too. If you do not have ti leaf then substitute aluminum foil, (Ti leaves can often be obtained from a local florist). Tie securely with twine. Roast in a 325-350F oven for about 3 hours to 4 hours. When meat is done, remove ti leaves, banana leaf (or bananas) and shred pork and toss with the cabbage. So delicious!
