Beef barbacoa tacos a la Co4ch D4ve

I saw this recipe by Co4ch D4ve the other day, and Aldi had a decent sale on chuck roasts, so I picked up 7 of them - 5 for the freezer, and 2 to see what those pictures tasted like!

This was also the first chance I've gotten to run high heat in my WSM with no water pan. Worked great. A little bit like driving your friend's car and the handling is completely different from yours - suddenly I had a pretty touchy gas pedal - but it held solid at 325 after I overshot at the beginning.

Check out the recipe in the link, but for the most part I smoked it at 325 for 3 hours with hickory, then braised it for 3 more hours in the oven covered with yummy things. Definitely worth trying!

Romaine wraps with tomato, feta, avocado crema, and the au jus from the roasts - SO good!

Thanks for the recipe, Co4ch!

Great looking Barbacoa loosechangedru!

Glad you liked my recipe... it is a favorite here in my house. Haven’t had ground beef tacos for a long time.

Like for sure from me!
