I'm wanting to try to make some of my own
do it with smoked pulled pork and that red chile sauce. They will not be bland. Try to keep the bark off your butt though. I smoke it until it's 160 internal then braise it in the chile sauce to soften it up. The masa is what's so good about these, you can do any of your favorite fillings
