Last week I smoked a chicken and pork shoulder with the intent of making tamales this weekend. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=175012

Homemade Chili sauce for the pork...


Finely shredded pork with the above chili sauce..


Shredded chicken with Salsa Verde



Boat load of Masa



The corn husks soaked and ready to go...



Step one...


Chicken on the masa



First 2 ready to go



All done and ready for the steamer...


Everyone is in the steamer now...

Thanks for looking!

The wife loves this idea. We are both fans of tamales, and most any Mexican food.

So are we - and we did this together. These are labor intensive, so it works well to have many hands to share the work.

You got that right. We made them ONE time, and decided it was easier to go to the local Mexican restaurant/store, when you can buy them fresh made. But we love pork butt, and the idea of it in tamales makes it seem well worth the effort.

For you guys in Texas that love tamales, if you are ever in Victoria or even near there, look up Ventura's Tamales. They put out some of the best tamales I have ever eat. We used to buy 6 or 8 dozen for Christmas every year when we lived there. They have mild and hot to choose from. I can almost taste them just posting this. MMMM...Good!

Blessings,
Omar

We have a lot of really good Mexican restaurants in the area, but I like to make them because I get to control the meat to masa ratio. Seems when we get them out there is a lot more masa then filling.
