I was recently on Maui and had some absolutely amazing spareribs from a roadside stand in Kihei that were advertised as "Huli Huli Ribs" They were marinated and cooked slowly, turning frequently, over a low fire on what looked to be charcoal or wood coals, although there was not a pronounced wood flavor. The ribs were amazingly tender and flavorful, but I have not found what seems to be an accurate way to reproduce them. The recipes I have found on line seem to all want a sweet sticky glaze to finish, which was definitely not what we had. Anyone have any ideas or recipes for authentic road-side Hawaiian Huli Huli ribs? I know there was an older recipe that was attempted to be copyrighted, but it has a thick glaze too. Not what I'm looking for. Thanks for any hints or pointers! The stand was in front of a Hawaiian Church in the parking lot on South Kihei Road. They sold Huli Huli Chicken too.
