Grind Time: Guava Smoked does its part

Mar. 10, 2015 | 0 Comments


Guava Smoked owner Scott Shibuya is doing his part to eradicate the invasive strawberry guava plant, one plate lunch at a time.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, except Sundays, pull up to his smokers at 1637 Republican St. and order a plate lunch or bowl piled high with smoked chicken, pork, duck, salmon belly, butterfish collar, kalbi or hamburger steak. Better yet, pick up a pound of frozen pork ($10), boneless chicken thighs ($8) or salmon belly ($17) for grilling at home.

Pork burgers, turkey tails, half ducks and whole turkeys are available as well.

Don’t want to make the trip to Kalihi? Guava Smoked operates at the Blaisdell Farmers Market from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays and Kailua Farmers Market from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursdays. For more info, visit
