    I can't get huli huli in my district of Kona, unless I make it myself!!! My wife and youngest daughter will be in Hilo all day playing club soccer and my second daughter will be at her high school playing waterpolo...

    I figure they're all gone for the day and I can fire up my mini!

    Nope!!! My second daughter forget her wallet and I need to drive 40 miles north to get her it because she has her prom after her sports events and she won't be home all weekend!

    So I get to her game at halftime and they are losing 5-1!

    This team is currently undefeated! We are losing 5-1 at the half...

    I also notice that they are running a concession with smoked meat as an option:

    I'm actually trying to find where the huli huli pit is but I can't not support the high school team if they are offering smoked meat!!!

    I get a smoked meat bowl!!! I actually ate about five pieces before I took the photo...

    Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE Hawaiian style smoked meat?

    My daughters team storms back and wins 11-7 to stay undefeated!!! I give her her wallet and continue my goal of finding out where the huli huli pit is....

    On my way to the wet side of town I stop at one of our local stores to see if they have the same tamale pots that are available where I live..,

    [​IMG]

    Sure enough 32 qt pots! They were also 40 and 52 qt pots...

    So I've got a couple of hours to kill before I have to head into work and decide to cross the street to see if there are tamale pots there!

    [​IMG]

    Yup! 40 qt pots!!!

    I then head out looking for where the huli huli pit is....

    [​IMG]

    They were across the street and a block east of where they had been! Not hard to find at all!!!

    The usual condiments: shoyu, sweet chili sauce, chili pepper water, sweet baby's Ray and sriracha!

    There was a line waiting to buy these smoked goodies! The family in front of me were tourist from Japan and there was an African American couple in front of them.

    The outfit that does this doesn't advertise and won't tell you where they are on any given day! I know they are in my hometown of Kohala (north) on Thursdays, Friday at the harbor, Saturday in Waimea and Sunday in honokaa. This is from everyone at work talking about them and figuring their schedule out...

    I watch them on Man Fire Food.  Very cool setup and some good looking food.

    So this week my youngest is in Waimea playing soccer and my second daughters water polo team is playing in Hilo... AGAIN she forgets her wallet!!! Really???

    So I go and watch my youngest's soccer team play and the soccer field is at least two miles from where the huli huli guys are but all game long I can smell that kiawe goodness!!!

    So again it's huli huli chicken for me!!! I didn't take any pics this time because it was the same outfit, the same place, the same line...

    Btw, my second daughters water polo team played the other undefeated team in the league and won in double OT!!!'
