Your carnitas look awesome! My daughters 17th birthday party was last Saturday and she wanted me to make smoked carnitas, chicken enchiladas, and chile rellenos.

I rubbed a pork shoulder with Guajillo chile power, Ancho chile powder, New Mexico red chile powder, Cumino power, salt and black pepper.

I also smoked the pork shoulder at 250º with hickory and mesquite for around 4 hours then finished in a dutch oven with Negra Modelo beer, chicken stock, orange juice, Mexican oregano, garlic, and a touch of cinnamon.

My daughter and the guests at her party loved the carnitas but the best part is a friend of mine is a chef at a local restaurant and is using my recipe as a special dish in his restaurant this summer.

Very nice, and yup lard is the secret. I talk my pork all the way to pulling then just dice and crisp in lard. I also use pulled pork for tamales....your tacos look amazing, nice garnishments

I love smoked butts for making carnitas, makes them even better than normal carnitas.

I have a question since I've never Smoked Pork Carnitas, can I use a Boston butt since I already have a couple in the freezer?
thanks,
Craig

Absolutely, thats what I used. I was really pleased with the way these turned out, just make sure you braise them in some stock and spices to finish cooking, it adds a great layer of flavor.
