Meat and Potatoes (my first post)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I had family over all weekend helping prune trees and do other yard work. Decided to pay them back with a big Sunday dinner.

Went to the store and bought 5 lbs of potatoes, an onion, a head of cabbage, and several pounds of pork carnitas. I got home and assembled my arsenal.

The seasoning packet was for the pork and the Holy Trinity (garlic, johnnys, and Greek seasoning) was for the veggies.

I threw the meat on the traeger after seasoning at 225 for 1.5 hours

While that was smoking nicely I chopped the potatoes, cabbage and onion then threw them in a large turkey foil pan. I added butter cubes and liberally seasoned with the divine trio of spices. To add moisture I empty a half can of PBR into the tin. I sampled the remaining PBR for quality control purposes.

When the meat had smoked up nice I put the carnitas on top of the veggie pan and covered with foil. I cranked the temp up and cooked for another 2.5 hours.

And after a few more PBRs. All of which were delicious, the final product came out awesome.

My initial thought was to use kielbasa but carnitas were on sale and in all actuality shredded up nicely atop the veggies.

Nice smoke! I love making that veggie potato mix. I like to add sauerkraut into the mix too. Good stuff!
