Preparing the pig for the imu (underground oven) for our luau that night.
Herbert and Clayton seasoning the pig with sea salt.
They cover the hot lava rocks with wet banana leaves, then layer the palm fronds on top before placing the pig in the imu.
Then adding more palm fronds and burlap to completely cover.
Finally, cover the whole thing with sand to keep the heat in. Cooks all day for the luau that night. YUM!
Diane helped with the sand.
