Pau Hana means “finished with work”. So when we developed this Hawaiian Barbecue sauce we wanted to make it so easy to use and cut down on your valuable prep times when it comes to meals at home, at the beach or work.

With any protein, you can put it in a bag, pour the sauce in, mix it around making sure all surfaces are covered. That’s it. When you’re ready to cook, take it out grill it, sear it, or fry it in a pan or cook it over a charcoal or wood fire for amazing flavor.

“Do you have any more of that PAU! HANA! HAWAIIAN BBQ! sauce? I can’t live without it!

We marinate all our meat with it, then grill it on the BBQ . Haven’t found a meat that’s not good with PAU! HANA! BBQ! on it. Ang even pan fries salmon on the stove with it. Throw salmon in a pan and smother PAU! HANA! HAWAIIAN BBQ! all over it. Next I want to cook ground beef with it and make beef tacos.”

  1. Marinate your cleaned and filleted fish in PAU! HANA! HAWAIIAN BBQ! for 1-8 hours depending on the thickness of your fillets
  2. Remove from the marinade
  3. Air dry on in a cool protected place until the fish feels dry to the touch
  4. Either hang or rack your fish in your smoker
  5. Keep your temp way down below 75ºF unless you want to hot smoke your fish until fully cooked. This is personal preference, I prefer cold smoked fish vs hot smoked.

Some of my favorite fish to smoke from Hawaii are AKU “Skip Jack Tuna”, Ahi, A’U “Blue Marlin” and Papio (<10#)/Ulua “Giant Jack Trevally“. Some of my favorite fish to smoke from the Pacific Northwest are Wild Copper River Salmon, Wild Steehead, Wild Rainbow Trout and Kokanee “Landlocked Sockeye Salmon”.


  • To thicken the sauce, heat it up in a sauce pan and put a bit of cornstarch slurry into it and reduce till desired thickness. It happens quick so keep an eye on it constantly stirring.

  • Marinate thawed chicken in PAU! HANA! HAWAIIAN BBQ! sauce for 1 hour minimum and up to 24 hours

  • Once fully cooked, remove from the heat, let rest for a few minutes, slice and serve over your preferred salad or salad mix
  • Dress with your favorite vinaigrette or mix Mayonnaise and PAU! HANA! HAWAIIAN BBQ! 50/50 to make a simple creamy dressing



Cook time – 4-6hrs

  1. Put thawed and drained chicken thighs in the Crock-Pot
  2. Pour PAU! HANA! BBQ! Sauce in almost up to the top of the chicken
  3. Turn Crock-Pot on medium temp
  4. After 2-3 hours turn chicken over, turn temp to low

  • We designed PAU! HANA! HAWAIIAN BBQ! to marry especially well with our Hamajang Smoke Ghost Pepper Sauce. Add a little or a lot, it’ll get hot :)

Hawaiian Barbecue, what is it?

Hawaiian Barbecue is a mix of locally influenced foods in Hawaii. Usually cooked over a grill or Hibachi with coals or a live fire burning Kiawe wood. It isn’t what most people from the mainland would consider Barbecue or the standard mass produced Barbecue flavor, mostly based on Hickory. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some good mainland Barbecue. But being born and raised in Hawaii with all the different cultures and foods intermingling, Hawaiian Barbecue is so satisfying and delicious. The process is just so different and the blend of flavors will take you on journey around the world all while enjoying a single dish.

Hawaiian Barbecue, is it Hawaiian?

Hawaiian Barbecue is not actually Hawaiian. It has some influences from many different cultures. It’s distinct to Hawaii but not Native Hawaiian. During the plantation boom of the 1850’s Hawaii saw an influx of cultures. People from around the world traveled to the islands along with Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino and Puerto Rican immigrants. This created a blend of styles, speech, and flavors. All of this culminated into the melting pot of food still found in Hawaii today.  Hawaiian food is amazing and includes 21 plants called the Canoe Plants. They were brought by the original ancient Hawaiians. These plants are:

`Ape – (elephant’s ear), `Awa – (kava), `Awapuhi Kuahiwi – (shampoo ginger), Hau, Ipu – (gourd), Kalo – (taro), Kamani – (Alexandrian laurel), Ki – (ti), Ko – (sugar cane), Kou, Kukui – (candlenut), Mai`a – (banana), Milo – (portia tree), Niu – (coconut), Noni – (Indian mulberry), `Ohe – (bamboo), `Ohi`a `Ai – (mountain apple), `Olena – (turmeric), Pia – (Polynesian arrowroot), `Uala – (sweet potato), Uhi – (yam), `Ulu – (breadfruit), Wauke – (paper mulberry)




Kalo (Taro Root), Ulu (Bread Fruit), Fresh Fish, Poke (Real Poke, not Poke Bowls like you see all over the mainland), Coconut,
