If you have never tried Kalua Pig before, you are really missing out on one of Hawaii's favorites at any Luau. I had this for the first time in 1981 at my first Luau. It was fantastic. This is my darn right delicious twist made with Boston Butt and smoked in my own backyard. It doesn't get much better than that. Cooking with Love & Passion. sw :)
