pulled pork fusion tacos
« on: November 12, 2009, 07:19:17 pm »
I bbq'd a pork shoulder on the smoker all day, then made fusion tacos by blending the bbq style in a texmex taco.  Got started around 8:30am and we ate around 8pm.  I went with a 9lb picnic cut, drinking a fat tire clone beer nearly the entire time.  Great day, great food.

Entire cook was over pear and oak. 

This is my rig, a proper Texas pit

After 5 hours into it, I decided it was time to wrap. 

These were my veggies, some from the garden, some the store

After 4 more hours, 9 total I judged it done at 190.

grilled veggies in olive oil

Salsa made with fresh tomatoes, peppers, garlic in the blender with some cilantro

Finished product, mixed the veggies with the meat and let them meld together.  The one on the left was spicy with some smoked jalapenos added.  They were HOT.

These were then used as filling for soft corn tortillas with sour creme, salsa, cheese and cilantro.  No picture of the true finish plate ready product.  You make it and take one  :P

Looks good man.  I haven't done an actual pork shoulder in a long time...I usually end up doing spare ribs and saving the rib tips for this kind of stuff, lately.  I should probably get a pork butt next time they go on sale, and do an honest to goodness normal pulled pork!

Love pork butt! Nice pit loopy! I have a similar square smoker with adjustable grates for the direct heat portion.
