Thread: Imu alternative - haole style

    Default Imu alternative - haole style

    Just in case you want to make a small and permanent ground cooker without the work involved in imu's - www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=28564&forum=10&27
    www.mgilbert.net/deep%20pit.html
    Or, the Bobby Flay way - www.lacajachina.com But you have to wait about 4 mins. thru the video before they get to the 'meat' of the matter.

    BTW, anyone use a Samoan/Tongan umu? It's a simpler style of imu and works great for smaller batches.

    Interesting system you employed there using two old washing machine spinner baskets. Looks like something Alton Brown would think of. I can just see the scenario when you tested this theory of yours out: Ron's wife yelling angrily, "Honey, why is there a suckling pig in our washing machine?!" lol

    You should try figure out a way to make the basket with the meat in it SPIN; like use some kind of belt-driven motor system. Then you can truly call it "Huli Huli Kalua Pig"!

    I seen that episode where Bobby Flay featured the Cuban/China Roaster. It's interesting how the coals go OVER the oven, and not under it. Seems to not make sense, but hey, it works!

    I've done Kalua Pig in a Weber Grill...




    Liquid smoke need not apply. Strictly Kiawe wood for da' smoke flavah.

    Must say, it came out pretty darned ono.

    Imagine going to a Luau and they serve you "Weber Pig". lol

    A pig pickin' in SC happens in a pit. Here's a description from a local webpage:

    Not quite the same, but the pig is just wonderful. I personally don't like much sauce; pork fat is the best sauce there is.

    Now i need some slaw!
