Exclamation BBq Liberation and Bob and the "Mexicoid" Brisket

Many know I am a teacher. There is a lot of **** I can't do but teachin' is not one of them. My kids got a deal, perform well (overall 20% increase in scores) on their 2cnd Curriculum Based test and they get Mr. T's (Popdaddy's Smoked Brisket or Pork Street Tacos.

They did and I did. I brought just my MBU military burners, griddle, a roaster with two briskets and a butt and my tent. 150 of them stood out in the rain as ate as I cooked.

It was a great R and D experiment. For one, 60 percent of our studnent body is hispanic ---- me.... well everyone knows I am a strong black woman. I had been doing seared meats but I needed to keep it cheap and I have no idea why I never thought of brisket which was $2 a pound. I picked up some red hots for the teachers and a pork butt at $1 a pound.

Each kid got two little 4 inch tacos (hard to find) and a **** load of brisket. I mean I think I loaded some as much as some people make a sandwich out of. The lady who helped me serve was an art teacher I grew up with - we went to school together. She initially said I put on too much but then observed the rolling eyes.... people here are not used to 4 inch tacos... but the big piles of meat she eventually said made it something to talk about.
IMG_62371.jpgschool taco.jpgclose taco.jpg
Recently my salsa process has been made MUCH easier with a veggie basket on my grill.... deans guacamole dip has been my go to squirt bottle dip and a squirt of sriracha and mayo in the sour cream has gone over well. I plan to use Guac and roll from now on for my guac.

So what was so liberating was the complete disregard and half- assed way I did my meats. Here is what made me think of Bob Brisket all the way through.

I jammed to, big assed 14 lb briskets, a bent wire rack to elevate the pork butt and packed it so much I needed to adjust to keep the air flow. They touched, overlapped, I folded over the thin blade I JUST DID NOT GIVE A ****! Three hours... and then I did it...... i cut the briskets in half and then again in half and dumped into a turkey roaster. The **** was rare inside! Pork butt went in oven after three hours too.

I was concerned the center would not cook the meat was so packed n the turkey roaster... i even grimaced when I could hear it sear against the sides. The lid went on the temp went seriously up to 280 and I went to bed at 10.

At 2 I got up to a house that smelled so much like Kreuz I wished I had cooked it out on the patio. BUT THEN I SAW IT!!!!!!

BOB I SAW AND HEARD IT!!!!!

I walked into the kitchen and heard that gurgle that lard only can make.

I checked the meat and noticed it was done.... turned the meat... added a coke, some of my salsa and some citrus.

Smoked meat cooked in lard all night................ mercy!

So Bob, I have a question. What do you think is in this consomme in the taco picture. I can't seem to find out what it is. consomme.jpg

The lard on site is also GREAT for cooking the torts on.

I love the reward based system. only thing I can teach is basketball. My daughter is s first grade teacher. I now have a lot of respect for those that decide to become teachers. Lots of hard work and you guys put a lot of your time and dollars into helping the kids. I even put some of my own money when the kids need it. Nice job!

Good on Ya, Donnie! I know those kids enjoyed it and appreciated it. Always gotta have a reward system in place.
We have district based Benchmark test coming up in January. You have given me an idea.......A big Taco Fest for those passing that dreaded state test at the end of the year!

Those tacos look perfect to me!

Do you have the vid link?

Bob

Donnie,

Here is the question........when you go to eat and tear up a taco, do you want a hot, wet, moist taco, or a hot dry one?

That consommé can be just about anything. BUT, most likely has been made with the drippings or broth from something. Could have some red chile concentrate or some of their house salsa. It is packed with flavor and is many things. Adds some wet and moisture to the meat and torts. Tacos are great, but if you are using a dry cut like that pastor and then the thicker handmade torts, there is a lot of bulk there. The quac, salsa, and consommé help em make for a juicier eating experience!

That consommé is also served as appetizer type soup. I've made it a few times and use the meat drippings or broth, mostly broth, but using both is best. Straining is fine. I'll add some red chile concentrate and then go from there. But my red chile concentrate will have lots of the flavor in it already. It's a nice sauce to add some squirt to the taco!!! :)

Bob

Bob I will tell you what my plan is to make it. It is about the color of what is under my roasts once they are cooked in the lard. The liquid under that... I throw in either arbol or pasilla chilies with the meat in the roaster along with my salsa. i also throw in some cans of marzona tomatoes and onions and cilantro, etc. but i have been throwing that all away in the end. lol.

granted, the meat sits in it before i pull and shred.

so i will strain, defat, add broth, red chili concentrate and serve hot. the key is that sheen and it is so void of little bits so it penetrates all the shredded meat
