Inject pineapple juice generously throughout pork, both sides, every 1 inch.
Mix Hawaiian Salt and Paprika together in small bowl.
Sprinkle the Hawaiian Pink Salt and paprika mixture lightly over both sides of pork butt.
Lay cut banana leaves (about 4) onto aluminum foil, shiny side down.

Cover pork with more banana leaves (about 4), shiny side up, then wrap foil tightly overtop pork and banana leaves. Take another piece of foil, place pork diagonally and wrap sides.
