- 4-5 pound pork butt
- 2½ tablespoons Hawaiian salt (substitute kosher salt)
- 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
- 1 banana leaf (substitute 4-5 whole, unpeeled bananas)
- 4-6 ti leaves (substitute aluminum foil)
Cut the ribs from the ti leaves and wrap over the banana leaf. Substitute aluminum foil, if ti leaves are not available. (Ti leaves can often be obtained from a local florist). Tie securely with twine.
Roast in a 325-350 degree oven for about 45 minutes per pound. When meat is done, remove ti leaves, banana leaf (or bananas) and shred pork.
