Default Alaea Hawaiian Red Sea Salt by William Bounds, Ltd?

Today in the cafeteria at work (Amgen) there was a rack of cooking spices and tools from a company called William Bounds Ltd. I came across the Alaea Hawaiian Red Sea Salt that sounds interesting. I looked on the web site but can't find it. From the description, it says "Sea Salt, Red Volcanic Clay, this salt is gathered from the reefs in Hawaii and the Alaea is the islands rich volcanic red clay that is mixed with the salt and is baked by the hot sun. Hawaiians traditionally use this for seasoning thier pork for a luau or preserving thier fish after a big catch."

I'm gonna try it on my Boston Butt this weekend!

It looks like course reddish sea salt. Anybody use this before?

i use it for all most all my cooking. great stuff to put on steaks or almost any type of meat. about and hour or two before grilling....or like you said we use it when we make kalua pig.. don't put to much at a time until you finded out how much salt you want on your pork .. its not like table salt... it takes some time for it to melt into the meat.. go slow
