my pork carnitas
 
My BBQ Brethren its been a while so here we go....
The family wanted carnitas tacos and it just so happens that picnic shoulder was on sale for .99 cents a pound. Seasoned with garlic salt and lawrys seasonig salt. We did salsa and pico de gallo.

The salsa is this...1 cup of japanesse chilli pods. 2 green tomatillos, 3 tbs of garlic salt and 3 tbs of oil. First brown the tomatillos in oil for about 5 minutes in medium heat and brown chillis for about 3 minutes. Combine in blender with 1 cup of water and blend.

That looks amazing. Ive been wanting to cook a carnitas flavored pork butt. How did your flavors compare to traditional carnitas? That salsa looks killer!

Man that looks good!

Wow that looks great. Looks like another beverage is in order.

That salsa looks hot. I like mild and med salsa in the jar. How does it compare in heat to medium store salsa ?

Sorry for late response. Emails somehow was sent to spam folder. The carnitas are tender as if it was made the traditional way. The smoke flavor is the kicker and my wife likes it because they are not greasy.

This would be a hot salsa but with flavored you can taste. You will not sweat or suffer.
