Luau Pork

"I got this recipe out of a convection oven cookbook and I have had excellent results every time I have made it. It produces a very nice Hawaiian-type pulled pork. It is very good for theme parties (luaus, tropical, etc.). The leftovers (if any) make delicious sandwiches."

  1. So, would you use Mesquite or Hickory flavor?
  2. what flavor Liquid Smoke? We have 2 here.


  1. One of my favourite staple, go-to recipe of all times!! I do it regularly for friends and there are never any leftovers. My only minor deviation is to x4 the amount of liquid smoke to really give the meat a 'emi' taste. But the other ingredients as is!! A great recipe. Thank you for posting
  2. Very easy to make! We like a little more of the hawaiian style taste with our meat so I add Pineapple slices to the top and bottom of the pork. I adds just a hint of sweetness to the dish. The foil, if sealed over really well, keeps the pork nice and moist!


Hello Everyone After a couple of years of using many, many recipes off this wonderful web-site, I finally decided to sign on. I am a retired widow living in the St. Petersburg area of Florida. I grew up in Minnesota and lived 30 years in the Boston area before moving to Florida 17 years ago. I was a commercial real estate broker. After my husband passed away I switched gears and became a cruise agent (it was a tough job, but somebody has to do it-LOL). I really enjoyed the traveling and meeting many new people. I have 3 children and 6 grandchildren and I am very fortunate that they live in this area and I get to see them often. My favorite pastimes are reading, walking (usually with my dog), and cooking. My pet peeve is crabby people!
