What's this?

This recreation of a traditional luau centerpiece is sweet & tropical. Our little piggy is slow smoke-roasted & wrapped in banana leaves for a dish that’s truly a bite of Hawaiian heaven.

Ingredients

  • 7 Pound bone-in pork shoulder

  • 3 Tablespoon Jacobsen Salt Co. Pure Kosher Sea Salt

  • As Needed ground black pepper

  • 2 Whole Banana Leaves

Steps

  • 1

    Season the pork shoulder with Jacobsen Salt and pepper.
  • 2

    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.
  • 3

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 300 degrees F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 4

    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.
  • 5

    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.
  • 6

    Tear the pork into chunks and shreds, discarding any lumps of fat or bone. Enjoy!
