Anybody know where I can buy fresh banana leaves in STL?

I would like to use em to cover my hog when I roast it next month.

I have yet to be able to find a local place I can buy leaves from, can only find places online.. & well the shipping is rediculous!

I'm just curious how much one could charge for leaves, and how large would they have to be to wrap a hog. I have tossed my big trees for the last several years so I don't have very big ones this year. Because of that I don't think I could help you out, but if it wouldn't take a whole lot, maybe.

I have bought them from the international market on south grand .
Check Mexican or Indian grocers. I've seen them before.
I used them to wrap chicken and cook on the grill.
Wash them good and soften them over a flame.
Lots of tips on the web.

Next month I shall drive around Wentzville looking for smoke and the smell of sweet pig! Then, I will ring doorbell and offer beer! LOL

I've always wanted to roast a whole-hog. One of these days!

Found em! (Actually my wife found em).. Global Foods in Kirkwood!
$1.29 a piece.. Which is way cheaper than what I found online!!

here are the pics of the smoked hog (process) from our party!
The banana leaves worked GREAT!
16 hrs on my smoker & it melted in your mouth!

Definitely could tell a difference!
I would recommend banana leaves to anyone smoking a whole hog!
