Arrow • Weber Kettle Rotisserie Al Pastor + Homemade Tortillas = Tasty Tacos

We decided to take a stab at Al Pastor using our Weber Kettle and Rotisserie, as in the past, we've always griddled homemade Al Pastor. Let's watch it unfold:

Picked out a nice pork shoulder:


Meat separated from bones:

The bones were put into a pot and simmered down for many hours as a broth for the Ranch beans which were later served with the tacos.

Meat all sliced up:

Al Pastor marinade all ready(Made with all fresh ingredients, including dried Ancho and Guajillo chiles):

Poured onto meat:

At this point the meat was refrigerated for an all day marination.

About seven hours later, we threaded the rotisserie, using 1/2 an orange on each side to help keep everything nice and tight:

Onto the kettle, with coals indirect and a drop pan underneath:

About two hours later, everything still holding together:

Another 30 minutes later we pulled the meat from the kettle:

Sliced off the crispy bits first:

Then the rest:

Then The Missus started on the homemade tortillas using the Blackstone:

After the first flip:

After the tortillas were done, we griddled up all the sliced up Al Pastor meat:

And finally, tacos served, with homemade ranch beans made with broth and meat from the pork bone, plus salsa roja and homemade pico de gallo:

Let's get a closer look at that first taco:

Muy bueno!

That looks epic. I gotta get myself some of those 4 pronged rotisserie things. Mine only has 2 prongs.

Can you share the marinade recipe?

Al Pastor and homemade tortillas, OH Yeah!

I've been contemplating a rotisserie for the kettle, and this post is probably going to push me over the edge.
