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.

Man that looks so good. I did my own version of carnitas and after the pork was done on the smoke, I chunked out large hunks and tossed them into the dutch oven that had some hot lard in it, seasoned with the mexican spices and took it off to chop...amazing. I love carnitas. Your tacos look off the hook.

Looks great. How much lard would you add per pound of pork?

I just put in a few tablespoons to crisp up the pork, you don't need a lot of it, depends on how much you put in there but just add as needed.

Looks great. Tell your neighbor to get rid of the gas grill and get a charcoal.
