Default Smoked Pork Carnitas

I picked up a nice pork shoulder the other day and wanted something a little different, so I tried Smoked Pork Carnitas.

I rubbed the shoulder with;
Brown sugar
Paprika
Ancho chili powder
Chipotle chili powder
Hot Mexican chili powder
Cumin
Mexican oregano
S/P

On to the smoker at 250 degrees


After about 4 hours, I put the butt in a dutch oven with, green chilies, onion, cilantro, and beef stock. This went back on the smoker at about 300 degrees for another 2 hours.

Pulled

And plated up on corn tortillas with home made pico, red onion, and fresh cilantro.


These were some of the best tacos I've had in a long time.
