Oven-Smoked Kalua Pork

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Fire up the tiki torches and pour yourself a mai tai! This is a take-off on Hawaiian pit-cured pork, smoky and a little salty, and done easily in your oven! At first I was a little worried about cooking the pork at such a high temperature for so long, but it comes out perfectly.

I have a similar version to this recipe. First I make cuts in the meat all the way around and rub the salt into the slits. Then I rub the meat with liquid smoke. I seal the meat in foil before placing it in the roasting pan. It always comes out juicy.
