Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker
So good! I didn't even use Hawaiian salt. I just rubbed the roast with kosher salt added one TBSP of liquid smoke and kept it on low for the full 20 hours. I think cooking it that long makes all the difference. Not sure if my crockpot is a bit too hot, but I didn't have any drippings and it started to get a bit toatsy on the bottom, so I just added some water every now and then to make sure nothing burned. I freeze the leftovers and thaw/reheat in the microwave (2-3 mins) in a bowl with a TBSP of water and cover with plastic wrap. You can't go wrong with this recipe!

Pumpkin Puree
Good recipe but you MUST drain the pumpkin overnight in a cheesecloth or paper towel lined strainer. You will drain a lot of water out of the pumpkin puree and you will left with a nice, dense puree.
