This more accessible version of the classic slow-roasted pig enjoyed at luaus is cooked as a pork roast in a regular oven.
4 1/4 pounds Boston Butt pork roast, trimmed
2 tablespoons barbecue smoked seasoning (such as Hickory Liquid Smoke)
3/4 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 275°.
Rub pork with liquid smoke. Wrap pork tightly in foil; place on a jelly-roll pan. Bake at 275° for 5 hours. Cool slightly. Remove pork from bone; discard bone. Shred meat with 2 forks. Combine shredded pork and salt in a large bowl, tossing well.
It is typical to stir any reserved meat juice into the shredded pork. If you do, we recommend that you skim the fat first. Place a heavy-duty plastic bag into a measuring cup; pour collected juices into the bag. Let stand 10 minutes or until fat rises to the top. Using kitchen shears, snip a small portion of one bottom corner of the bag, and pour the juices over shredded pork, stopping before you reach the fat layer.
Pierce the meat in several places, rub it with liquid smoke, then Hawaiian Sea Salt. Put it in a slow cooker until it falls apart, usually about 7 hours. . Couldn't get any easier than that and the slow-cooker doesn't heat up the house. Serve with sweet Hawaiian style rolls. Everyone loves this.
