Was talking to my wife last night about our dinner plans this week and we were talking about making tacos (nothing special, ground beef), but it got me to thinking how good some slow-cooked carnitas-style pork would be for a Mexican night.
Has anyone done such a thing in the smoker?
The main things I'm wondering about is seasoning, and smoke. Obviously I would not want much of a barbecue style seasoning if I was using it for tacos or burritos, maybe a jerk-style seasoning of some sort?
As for the smoke, I wouldn't want quite as much smoke either. I was thinking something like doing only a couple hours in the smoke (with something like cherry wood), then maybe do the rest in foil, or in a covered roaster like I did my last shoulder, with some good spices and seasonings in the bottom of the roaster for it to simmer in for several hours.
