Need a Mexican style Rub - Want to make Carnitas Tacos and Tamales with the Pulled Pork..

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I know that the smoker is not the traditional way to make carnitas, but anyway I wanted suggestions for a mexican style rub to smoke 2 shoulders.

 

In the past I use a normal rub (I found here) and the pork is good. But I tend to eat almost all of the pork as Tacos. So, I wanted a more Mexican flavored rub.

 

If it turns out good, I plan to also make homemade tamales with the pulled pork... MMMMMM.

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

I haven't done it yet, but here's one that I found that sounds pretty good:

 

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

 

If that doesn't make enough then you can multiply it with the recipe calculator that I found: http://www.fruitfromwashington.com/Recipes/scale/recipeconversions.php

 

The recipe is from here: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Slow-Cooker-Carnitas/Detail.aspx
