    This is a dish that was inspired a few days ago in a discussion about nachos with Dirt Guy.
    I was going to post this as an entry for this months throwdown but forgot to add the code word.

    It all started on an average day, decided I wanted to smoke a few things, while I was at the store buying meat I came across a jar of some Goya chipotle marinade, never tried it before but if it has chipotle I like it already.
    So I marinated a chuckie in it then seasoned liberally with my chipotle rub. Oak and cherry, 250, wrap at 165, take to 205, rest 1 hour then shred.

    Nice and spicy.
    A few days later I decided to use the rest up on some nachos.
    To reheat I threw the meat into a crockpot with 1 cup beef broth and the juice from a jar of pepperoncinis, it was a delicious mixtures.
    Had some Wonton taco chips that I broke into smaller pieces, topped with meat, cheddar/jack cheese, melted it. Added some onions, tomatoes, jalapenos and I didn't have any lettuce so I shredded up some fresh spinach.

    Those were some tasty nachos!
    Thanks for lookin.

    I love that chipotle mojo, but I've never smoked anything marinaded with it. How did it hold up to the smoke?

    Great looking platter!

    Man, talk about Asian-Fusion! Excellent looking nachos, Jim. As Meatball asked as well, how'd that marinade hold up, and taste after the chuckie was done?

    Incredibly tasty looking plate! [​IMG]

    The marinade was pretty tasty and came through nicely, though I would have liked to let it set for another 4 hours or so but afterwards besides my chipotle rub I could really pick out the marinade flavor and it gave the meat a nice chipotle bite, I'm really happy with the stuff so far, just need to try it on a few other meats for flavor comparison.
    If asking if I would recommend it for marinating, yes...yes I would.
    I especially love when something has a nice short list of real ingredients instead of 50 things half of which you can't pronounce.

    Looks good! Question though, I only tried a chuckie one time and was disappointed in how much fat was in the final product. Just me, just the chuckie? Any thoughts.

    Chuckies do contain a good amount of fat but that is part of what makes them so tasty and shred so nicely.
    As for the main sections of fat, when I am shredding the chuckie I just remove those and save for my dog, she love BBQ too [​IMG]

    You can find chuckies with less bigger sections of fat n them, just as long as you have some nice marbling in the meat sections you're good to go.
