Crock Pot Kalua Pig

It just doesn't get easier than this, and it's delicious.......

1 6lb pork butt roast
1 1/2 Tbs.. Hawaiian sea salt, or any sea salt
1 Tbs. liquid smoke

Make deep slits all over the roast with a long knife. Make a paste of the salt and liquid smoke, and massage it into the meat. (I use latex gloves)
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.

What does "Kalua" (or Kahlua?) have to do with it?

Traditionally, it is cooked in an underground oven, or pit, that is what "kalua" means. (not the liquor) It's a Hawaiian method of roasting pig. I would guess that the crock pot and the smoke flavoring simulate the taste.

thanks k-l, i'm gonna try this with the smoke.

i make a pulled pork in the crock pot with onions for my dept.'s holiday party every year that gets rave reviews, so i think i'll try one before then with the smoke.

i know a lot of purists cringe about a pork butt being cooked in it's own fat in a crock pot rather than a grill or smoker, but it turns out really well!

I've eaten several meals of traditionally prepared Kalua Pigs, and can tell no difference from the real thing, with this crock pot recipe........

Here's the work involved to do it the traditional way.......

"pig fat rules" Bucky. Not something you'd want to clog the arteries on a regular basis but........
I think you'll really like this. Please save the onions for another butt though.

Would it help to know that a pork butt isn't anywhere near the butt??
