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
Ancho chili powder
Chipotle chili powder
Hot Mexican chili powder
Mexican oregano

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.


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.
Life is to short for green tea and tofu; pass me another half rack and a beerů
