First, take the pork butt and score it all over. Then rub Hawaiian salt and liquid smoke on all sides. Place the seasoned butt onto a piece of aluminum foil and wrap it so that no steam can escape. Place it in a roasting pan and roast in an over preheated to 450F degrees. Cook at this temperature for 1 hour, then reduce the heat to 400F and cook for another 3-4 hours or until done.
