Chefrob, I had a couple questions, from the pictures, I don't really see anything that you show in the marinade when you put it on the smoker, so do you puree everything ? How long do you marinaded it all ? and I just have to say one more thing, seeing it all plated up, I almost want to make my way to Arizona just to try it......Looks Great !!!! ...Thanks for posting ShoneyBoy........

Ha! I knew it! When Dave asked where the other half of the butts went in your bacon post, I tried to reply that you'll probably make tamale meat but sometimes these "work" computers just don't want to play ball.

Nice looking grub there Rob.

yup, i put it all in the blender (garlic and onions first so the juice gets extracted) and some olive oil (1/4 - 1/2C.) and as little water as possible to blend. you can marinate it over night just put it on the grill ready to go. one thing thing i usually add but didn't have was the juice from 3-4 limes.

 

Pete.......ya know me good my brother!

 

dave, i'd send ya some but something tells me it would never make it....................damn sniffing dogs!
