Aloha From Hawaii

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by heeloboi, Jul 5, 2006.

  1. Aloha all from the land of hula skirts and palm trees. Jus joined the site and wanted to let everybody know that us here in the 50th state love us some BBQ and smoke meat.

    I use my grandpa's smokehouse which is an old iron roof shed (4x4x7' high) and soak the meat (usually pork but we do turkeys on Thx Gvg & xmas) in a brine of soy sauce and garlic.

    For BBQ, we favor using short ribs (we have a short rib cut in the islands that is unique of the mainland US) soaked in a brine of soy sauce, peanut oil, sesame oil, green onions, garlic, and ginger. just had some last night for the 4th and it was stupendous!

    I would love to know if any of you out there has tried some Hawaiian BBQ or smoked meat and let me know what you think.

    Aloha, HeeloBoi :mrgreen:

    I have never tried the Hawaiin BBQ but now I want to try it. I think those flavors in that marinade would leave a great taste.

    Had several trips through the Islands with Uncle Sam's yacht club. Always enjoyed everything about it. Got a couple of tatoo's to prove it :twisted:

    Always loved the pork :D

    Aloha, HeeloBoi!

    Happy to have you on board! Sounds like you have the smoking thing AND the flavor thing down pat! Hope to enjoy more of your posts soon.

    In the meantime I will be investigating Hawaiin smoke recipes.

    The mention of all those ingredients sounds interesting. I have to admit that I have never had Hiwaiian BBQ. I was once there and had pork at a Luau(sp). It was wonderful. I'd appreciate your posting some of your favorite recipies for marianade, smoking etc. I'd like to try some of them if you don't mind. And thanks ahead of time.

    Aloha to you, Heeloboi. I had a Hawaiian BBQ place near my old house that I really enjoyed even though the owner would get carried away with using green peppers. BBQ any style I love-but I can really do without the indigestion that bell peppers can give me.
