  • Using a sharp knife, pierce the roast about 5-7 times. Place in slow cooker (you will want to use a 6 qt. slow cooker for this recipe).
  • Sprinkle salt on roast and massage it into the meat.
  • Pour Liquid Smoke on top of roast.
  • Cook for approximately 10-12 hours on the Low setting. Mine usually takes about 10 hours.
  • Remove roast from the slow cooker and shred with two forks. Add some of the cooking liquid to the shredded meat if needed.


  • Cooking time will vary based on your particular slow cooker performance.
  • Shredded meat can be frozen for 1 month.
  • Use leftover Kalua Pig for BBQ sandwiches, quesadillas, tacos, enchiladas and salads.
