Pulehu Chicken for Project Grad

One of the things I love most about our community is how we come together to benefit youth and children.
Last night, parents and former students prepared pulehu chicken for a fundraising project for Waimea High School's Project Grad. I was on the night shift- 10PM to 5:30 AM.


Kiawe wood was gathered, cut, and burned for hot coals. It was good to see Waimea alumni, son Steven, Kenny (UH Football Warrior #37), Ryan and John there to help out!



Hawaiian salt was mixed with paprika and rubbed into the beautiful XL chicken halves.

The chicken was loaded into special cooking racks and then carried over to the fire pit where it was slow-broiled cooked to juicy perfection.

The cook-master monitored the heat and indicated when the chickens needed to huli - or turn over.

The ladies and guys enjoyed coffee and food while the cooking was going on. Did I mention that it was very chilly (63 F when I headed home at 5:45AM) and our hands felt frozen when we prepped the chicken? Perfect cooking weather, actually!


When the internal temperature reached "done" and the color was right, the racks were removed and chicken was unloaded, wrapped in foil and placed in large coolers to keep them hot.

This process was repeated three more times until the 900 servings of chicken were all cooked, wrapped and loaded on a trailer to take to the pick-up location in Waimea and the morning shift of workers who did the distribution.


I went home and crashed. When I woke up, I had some chicken with lettuce and tomato for lunch. It was DEE-LICIOUS! Not too salty, not too smoky, and VERY juicy!
What a great night to hang out, talk story, work hard and enjoy doing something that would benefit our kids!

Merry birthday to you, Liz!!!

The chicken looks really good. Mmmmm. Guess I'll make some huli-huli chicken when it warms up -- whenever that is.

Looks like everyone was hard at work and having fun, too!

Thank you, guys!

Yes, the chicken tasted as great as it looks. I gotta make deliveries today. Funny how "pick up" turns into "deliveries" for fundraisers!

But most of the folks live on the way to Lihue- where I hope to go for a pedicure today.
