I did the banana leaves with the slow cooker...awesome. I haven’t tried using banana leaves in the Instapot yet. But highly recommend the Liquid Smoke.

Luau Pork:

Rub Black Hawaiian lava salt to generously cover the pork butt.

Lay strips of bacon across the top to cover the pork.

2 Tbsp liquid smoke

1 tblsp olive oil

1/2 cup of water or beef stock.

Cook 15min/lb.

———————-

The black salt gives the appearance of the pork being cooked underground as it usually is in a deep cooking pit.

The liquid smoke gives that rich ‘slow cooked Smokey’ flavor. Amazingly good!

I didn't get banana leaves, but this was really easy to make and very tasty.

Nice! Yeah I’ve done the leaves when I slow cooked it. Pretty nice meal for being so simple and fast.

Pecan. The Weber Kettle with the Slow n Sear is versatile, but it could be better.

The wings came out great, though.

I did something like that a few weeks ago.

Do you think the Slow n Sear gives a big advantage over just stacking the coals on one side of the grill manually?

For a long cook? Absolutely. The Slow n Sear has the water well which acts as a barrier for the heat for better temperature control and an indirect heat source, and the steam from the water in the well boiling helps transfer the smoke to the meat. You just have to remember to refill the well once in a while which I usually do when I have to throw more wood on the coals.

Even for regular grilling, I like the Slow n Sear because it lets me build a stack of coals in a taller, more concentrated pile, so you can get that spot hotter which is great for searing.

Outdoor grilled seafood skewers, over angel hair pasta tonight.  Shrimp, scallops, onions, roma tomatoes, crimini mushrooms.  Labor intensive, so I only do this once or twice a summer.  Next up, peach pie in August.

Thanks.  I get confused to what to put on the skewer next.  Though I like to start and end with a mushroom or onion to keep everything locked in.  I should make a cheat sheet.  Mushroom, Shrimp, onion, scallop, tomato... repeat.
