Tamales...
 
Last week I smoked a chicken and pork shoulder with the intent of making tamales this weekend. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=175012

Homemade Chili sauce for the pork...

I'n not a great fan of tamales, but those look great and well worth eating.

I love tamales! I just never looked into how to make them. These pictures are awesome! Guess what I'll be doing on the smoker next!! Thank you LMAJ for sharing.

The wife loves this idea. We are both fans of tamales, and most any Mexican food.

So are we - and we did this together. These are labor intensive, so it works well to have many hands to share the work.

I'd hit that!

You got that right. We made them ONE time, and decided it was easier to go to the local Mexican restaurant/store, when you can buy them fresh made. But we love pork butt, and the idea of it in tamales makes it seem well worth the effort.

Dang good lookin butt there L-M

And the tamales look really tasty

For you guys in Texas that love tamales, if you are ever in Victoria or even near there, look up Ventura's Tamales. They put out some of the best tamales I have ever eat. We used to buy 6 or 8 dozen for Christmas every year when we lived there. They have mild and hot to choose from. I can almost taste them just posting this. MMMM...Good!

Blessings,
Omar

We have a lot of really good Mexican restaurants in the area, but I like to make them because I get to control the meat to masa ratio. Seems when we get them out there is a lot more masa then filling.
