Season the pork shoulder with Jacobsen Salt and pepper.
Place a banana leaf on your work surface. Lay the pork shoulder in the center of it, and draw up the ends as if you were wrapping a gift. Lay the second banana leaf at right angles to the first and draw up the ends to enclose the meat. Wrap the entire package tightly in aluminum foil. Refrigerate overnight.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 300 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the wrapped pork directly on the grill grate and cook until the pork is falling-apart-tender, 5 to 6 hours, or until it has reached an internal temperature of 190 degrees F.
Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest, still wrapped, for 20 minutes. Carefully unwrap the pork and save any juices that accumulated in the foil.
Tear the pork into chunks and shreds, discarding any lumps of fat or bone. Enjoy!
