In Hawaii, the pig was roasted traditionally in an underground oven. You do not have to worry if you do not have an underground over. I will tell you how to make one, all you need is a backyard and a shovel and of course a pig carcass. The entire pig can be cooked or roasted underground in a closed pit.

You need to dig a hole 3 feet deep, 30 inches wide and of appropriate length to fit in the whole pig. Start a wood fire in the pit and build it up. Use wood at least 2 times the volume of the pit. The wood will require 3-4 hours to burn completely. You should use only dry hard wood. When you have sufficient coal, level them and remove unburned pieces. Cover the coal with 2-inch layer of pea gravel and place a 2" by 4" sheet of welded wire on top of it, the pig should be placed on top of the welded wire. Lower the pig into the pit and cover it with electrified roofing supported on steel posts or pipes. Put the dirt over it to cover. Allow the pig to cook for about 10-12 hours.

If you have an underground room - ie a basement, then all you need to cook down there is an oven, and an electric socket or gas connection (dependent on your oven type). You can do most things in underground living spaces, although sometimes it is better to have more ventilation and a nice view, which you may not have in a basement.
