An eat-in Christmas Dinner in HI: Menu Advice

The BH extended family (5 adults & a couple of rug rats) is renting a Waillea condo over the Christmas holidays. If we were home in Seattle we'd have a standing rib roast, but that seems rather mundane (as would roast turkey). Got to speculating as to what would be appropriate for Hi ... maybe roast pig (not a whole pig, but take-out from someone who does pigs), or seafood (King crab? or whatever). Would appreciate info/comments/advice regarding a Hawaii-appropriate Christmas Dinner menu.

While you are on track with a roast pig, King Crab says nothing Hawaiian. How about some Kona Slipper Lobster or Kona Crab:

But, start off with some Sashimi and Kona Longboard beer

Or, a Mai Tai

Some basic Hawaiian food would be great - poke, etc.

Does Maui have a Hawaiian food place where you can pick up a Kalua Turkey?

For thanksgiving or Christmas? For thanksgiving the schools listed in the following article will cook your turkey for a fee:

They often presell the tickets.
Haili's has usually sold kalua turkey dinners at thanksgiving. You should call and ask:

Oops, I see you were asking about Maui, I don't have any idea then.
An internet search reveals that Aina gourmet has done kalua turkey dinners to go for thanksgiving in the past. Again calling would be good:
