Default No Smoke, No Bark, Just Yummy Achiote Pork Tacos

Wanted to try something different.

Cooked on the Egg at 300º-325º for 4.5 hours, pulled off when Butt was at 205º.

Mixed the Achiote Paste with 1c Lime Juice in the blender with some Salt

My Bananas plants are just getting going for the season so just had a couple leaves to use. In the summer I will have 4' leaves.

Wrapping it up

Poured the mix on, be careful here or you will have orange fingers for awhile.

Topped off with the Banana leaves, sealed in foil and into the fridge overnight.

After 4.5 hours

After the paste cooled back down removed the top grease and mixed the Paste into the pork.

The Taco with Mexican Cheese and Salsa Fresca

After all this I forgot to prepare the Pickled Onions, I will have them with the leftovers after it mixes well with the paste.

Thanks for peeking!

That looks GREAT! Can you share your recipe for the Achiote rub/paste?
Achiote Paste
5 Tbl Sp annatto seeds
2 tsp. cumin seed
½ tsp. whole cloves
7 allspice berries
1 big Tbl sp. black peppercorns
1 ~ 2 seeded habanera peppers or you can substitute hot sauce for added shelf life
6~ 8 garlic cloves
2 Tbl sp. Salt
5 lemons juiced
½ cup OJ
½ cup vinegar
Small dash of tequila (optional but worth it)

Mix all dry spices in spice grinder until you have a powder, then mix wet with dry in a blender or food processor leaving out the lemon juice and tequila. Mix until smooth then add in the lemon juice and tequila and mix again.

Shiz-Nit’s Achiote Fish Taco
Mix some achiote paste with some more fresh lime juice, EVOO, fresh garlic, cumin and salt until thinned out fairly good. Rub both sides of the fish, wrap and store in fridge for 2 hours. Grill over an open flame or however you wish until fish is flaky.
Serve on a small flour tortilla with salsa, fresh cilantro, Mexican blend cheese, fresh squeezed lime, red onion and cabbage for a little crunch.
