This is delicious! I have vacationed in Hawaii many times and was so delighted to find an easy version to try at home. After reading pages and pages of reviews, and making this several times, I have found the perfect recipe to suit everyone I have entertained. This recipe is pretty much fool-proof, only things I do different are: remove the big layer of fat; I find the marbling throughout the pork butt/shoulder gives off enough juices. Then add about a half cup of pineapple juice to the slowcooker, add my fork stabbed, salt rubbed and liquid smoked pork, then topped with 2 bananas, peels on and just a slit along it length wise. Thats it! After 6 hours I flip it, another 6 and its ready to shred! Juices go into a tall glass and into the freezer while I shred, skim off fat, then return fatless juices to the slowcooker with the now shredded pork. I leave in for about an hour to soak up juices, then serve however I feel like it. One of my favorite ways is to cook this overnight, then for breakfast make scrambled eggs, the Kalua pork, and wrap in a whole wheat tortilla. Yup! I use a 5.5 bone in shoulder/butt.
