Salt meat and pork making sure it is well coated. Place meat in center of leaves and repeat procedure with pork on top. Place remainder of luau leaf on top of pork. Take salmon and put on top of 3 t-leaves and wrap with foil. Do same with butter fish. Place both fish on top of pile and cover the pile with the remainder of the t-leaf and finish wrapping with a cover of tin foil. Then take the ends of the material and tie together tightly, forming a large bundle. Place the bundle in a large pot with a rack on the bottom. Fill the bottom of the pot with 4 - 6 inches of water. Cook on high until water comes to a boil. Lower to low heat and cook for 8 - 14 hours, making sure that there is enough water in pot at all times. After cooking, remove from pot and let drain for an hour, before serving. Amounts can be reduced to fit pot.
