Made this as a trial run recipe for my sister's upcoming luau themed birthday party. If you're going to make this, make sure you have LOTS of time to cook it. I put it on at 5pm and it was done the next day at 8am. I had my husband taste it and he said while it was good, it was a wee bland. Plus it doesn't have that flavor an authentic Kalua pork has, from Hawaii. If you've actually had Hawaiian Kalua pork, cooked in the ground, this recipe isn't even close in flavor. Either way, it was good but for the looong cooking time I don't know if it's really worth it. It makes a ton, which is good. We put Pepper Plant pepper sauce on some of it and made tacos. The other 1/2 I topped with a homemade pineapple based BBQ sauce and making pulled pork sandwiches.
