Yes that WOULD help but, but, but...OMG, to think I've been eating ham all these years. Who's cruel joke was it to name the butt "ham" and the shoulder "butt" ???

Yep, the name pork butt seems strange, doesn't it? I did some research, and it turns out in pre-revolutionary New England and into the Revolutionary War, shoulder cuts were packed into casks or barrels (also known as "butts") for storage and shipment. And it's also weird that "living high on the hog" meaning affluent living, is actually " low on the hog " where the ham is.
I can make myself crazy with stuff like this.

Place the roast into the crockpot without any liquid. Cover, and cook on low for 10 to 12 hrs. Shred the meat, and add the drippings as needed to moisten.
I'm going to try your version of Kalua Pig in the crockpot K,
mainly `cuz I ran out of banana leaves to make it my way.
Now I do have question though,
did you increase the salt or liquid smoke at all since posting this?

Kgirl, you're our favorite wahine now at DC. I posted this long before you came to us, and it's really very good. No, I haven't really changed the amount of salt or liquid smoke. My last cook, I used this stuff and it was really remarkable.
