Default First (but not last) Tamales

I smoked a pork shoulder last week, and Big Al smoked a chicken on Monday while he was off and I have been wanting to try my hand at Tamales... so I did!

I gathered the ingredients.

Yes... lard... I can feel my heart...slow...as I type...
This is the recipe I used -



I simmered the chicken in a green chili sauce


And the pork in a red chili sauce



I watched this video to see how to actually put them together
Then I watched this one

With that informaiton under my belt sallied forth to make the tamales.
I mixed up the dough - had to do it by hand since I couldn't find my mixer...
Then started putting the tamales together. I think I did OK.



Into the steamer basket...




One magical hour later...





They were pretty tasty. Big Al said they were better then the ones we get at our local mexican place. I will be making them again. I next time I think I will put more spices in the masa besides salt.
