Will Owen's Kalua Roast Pork--Wonderful (w/PHOTO)

  • f

Thanks Will for this outstanding recipe!

I had an 8# boneless pork shoulder; used 3 T Kosher salt, 2 1/2 T liquid smoke and put it in a large Ziploc bag overnight. The next morning I wrapped it in foil and cooked it at 275 for 7 1/2 hours, then pulled down the foil and convection cooked it at 375 for one more hour to crisp up the exterior.

The juices/fat looked so yummy, so I dipped my buns in it and grilled them--mmm! We pulled the pork and put it on top of the buns, then poured BBQ sauce over--pure heaven!

      For this I just used what we had on hand. We received a Harry & David jar of BBQ sauce as a gift, was very good on this.

          oh my god , meaty goodness and scrummy porkiness

      2. Looks absolutely delicious. Was all the cooking time spent in a convection oven (first 7.5 hrs), or only the second cook without the foil?

          I used convection for the last hour only.

        2. Fabulous! This recipe is one of the best things I've got off this board--and that's really saying something, as I use tips and recipes from this board all the time.

          Thanks for sharing the photos too.

          1. Thanks for sharing your experience with this recipe -- and the photos! This looks soooo delicious. I've saved the recipe myself for future use.

              Sure :)
              P.S. A few hours after it is roasting the foil package begins to ooze juices, so place a bit of water in the bottom of the pan (at the beginning or when you observe them leaking out) to prevent them from burning.
