Gastronomy expert and author Dick Stein is KPLU host and producer of the “Food for Thought” feature in the Seattle Times, writer and director of the three “Jimmy Jazzoid” live radio musical comedies and record holder of 100 episodes of the “Jazz Kitchen” show.

Cochinita Pibil, the Yucatan-style roast pork, is smoked and slow roasted in banana leaves. My mistake was trying to smoke it in a gas grill. After 30 minutes over max heat my little disposable aluminum tray of wood chips was barely scorched, let alone smoking.
