it's been ages, but it's fun.

i grew up in hawaii, see, so it was actually a semi-common thing to do for large parties.

a few technique points that are pretty universal: wet wrappings, preferably a succulent vegetable matter are best.

clean out your fire pit or cover the ashes before you start cooking.

good rocks are essential, as are good hardwood coals to get them nice and HOT.

and plenty of patience and a willingness to experiment and try again. the upside is that meat doesn't dry out easily so you can let it go long without ruining it.
