Pulled Pork Tacos

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

The wife is getting a little tired of all the smoked food but I can't seem to stop smoking (it is a terrible addiction to have :biggrin:). So last weekend I decided to mix things up and cook something on my smoker that isn't a traditional BBQ item. I went for pulled pork tacos. I kind of made it up as I went but it came out great. Here is my method:


I made up a quick marinade/injection for my 7lb boneless pork butt. I pureed the following items in the food processor (I couldn't find the blender since my wife had "rearranged" the kitchen)


1 can red enchilada sauce (mild)

1 can chipotles in adobo

1 onion

1 small bunch cilantro

1 T salt

1 T pepper

1 t cumin

1 t coriander




All injected up and ready to go on the smoker after an overnight rest.



I smoked it on my UDS at 300 degrees. I started it in the foil pan uncovered so it could cook in that delicious marinade.


Three hours in I took it out of the pan and let it go till it hit 170.


I then placed it back into a pan and covered it. I didn't want a bark to form as that would throw off the texture of the tacos.


I pulled it at 206 IT and let it rest for an hour. It took right at 7 hours to cook.


Man I love smoking shoulders at 300. If you haven't tried it than you are missing out.



All pulled and ready for Tacos



The drippings in the pan were de-fated and put back into the pulled pork.


I didn't get a plated shot as they were consumed too fast. The pork really took on the flavor of the marinade and made for a great taco. This will be a repeat recipe.


Thanks for looking.

I've got this on the smoker now. One tip I will add is run the blender a long time to get it to be thin enough to go through the injector needle. This smells amazing already I can't wait to see what a day bathing in hickory smoke does to it.

Missed this the first run but that injection does sound great...JJ

The smoker was running a little slow yesterday so dinner was late, therefore no finished picture. But wow was it good! Not real spicy just good flavor that everyone enjoyed. Will definitely be adding this to the arsenal of party pleasing smokes.
