Basically that's right. I've made few and they're pretty easy to do if you're in the tropics i.e. have access to a sandy beach and a plentiful supply of banana leaves.

Step 1: Dig a dirty big hole at least 4 feet deep.

Step 2: Have a few beers to rehydrate.

Step 3: Build a dirty big bonfire.

Step 4: Have a few beers whilst you wait for the fire to burn down to coals and let the womenfolk wrap all the food tightly in banana leaves.

Step 5 Shovel half the coals into the bottom of the pit.

Step 6: Place the food that needs the most cooking on top of the coals.

Step 7: Shovel the remaining coals over the food

Step 8: Place the food that needs less cooking on top of the coals.

Step 9: Shovel sand over the top.

Step 10: Have a few beers to rehydrate.

Step 11: Have a few beers while you wait for 2 hours or so for the cooking to be complete.

Step 12: Have the designated driver dig out the food, and give to the womenfolk to plate up.

Step 13: Enjoy your meal with a few beers.

It is very important to use banana leaf if you can get it rather than aluminium foil.

I don't think they would let me do that at the beach, I do have access to clay and gravel soil in my backyard though.

Have you cooked a coconut Pauly?
