The method in which Morgado used to barbecue the chicken is what gave it it's name, Huli Huli, which means "turn, turn" in Hawaiian. The chicken is placed between two grates and is constantly turned over a wood fire in order for the sugar in the BBQ sauce not to burn. Why don't we ever see Huli Huli BBQ sauce in stores? Since Morgado trademarked the term you will only see it in stores as, Hawaiian BBQ sauce.
For many years roadside stands lined the streets of the Hawaiian islands with locals re-creating this magnificent dish. Today you have to look very hard for them. On my recent trip to Kauaii we could only find one. The state health department cracked down several years ago and ran most of them out. Luckily there is one man who took a stand. For many years he set up his grill on the opposite side of the fence from a busy farmers market in Anahola. He wasn't allowed in the farmers market because he was cooking illegally. But the people kept coming. As soon as a batch of chicken would get off the grill there were people lined up and the chicken was sold out in a matter of minutes. It was obvious that he was not going anywhere. The state health department finally gave in, gave him a permit and he moved his stand to the other side of the fence inside the farmers market where you can still find him today every week on friday, saturday and sunday. The rumor is that a man from the state health department used to sneak in and buy the chicken every weekend because it was his favorite and finally convinced the department to help the guy out.
