Need help for fajitas!

Discussion in 'Beef' started by reddogchop, Jul 30, 2013.

  1. Ive got a crowd coming over Friday and we are trying fajitas.  I'm gonna grill the chicken breasts, but I want to smoke a couple of chuck roasts for the beef.  I have an electric that cooks at a constant 200 and a propane vertical I can adjust.  I'm planning some lime and pepper marinade with a mojo criollo mopping sauce.  Any suggestions to make this a success?
     
  2. Okay fine! I'll do it alone! Just kidding. Marinated overnight with mojo criollo and ready to hit the smoker at 250.
     
  3. Sounds like a good idea! What temp you taking those roasts too? Pulling or slicing?

    I've never made chicken fajitas or smoked a chuck roast, so not much help there. 

    Good luck and let us know how they turn out!
     
  4. If I double post I'm sorry. New to this! The chucks are 150 already so I dialed back the heat and mopped with mojo . I'm gonna wrap at 165 and cook to 200 for pulling.

    Sounds like a plan....I love fajitas. Cast iron skillet over a hot grill to do up the veggies? Got the Pico de Gallo ready?? whoop whoop....keep us posted.....Willie
     
  6. Yes sir! Gonna grill the chicken breasts and the veggies around five thirty and be ready to feed the crowd about six thirty. Got ten or eleven coming for grill night and bringing the guacamole, sour cream, cheese, rice and refried beans.

    awwww right...sounds like you got all under control.....carry on & enjoy the good times
     
  8. Thanks Willie.
     
  9. Well the roasts are doing great! I put them in pans and foiled them with some lime juice. Found out more people were coming so I added some riblets and hickory to the smoker. So far so good!
     
  10. Roasts are awesome! For some reason my pics won't load. I'll try later. Time to eat! !!

    Morning Mike.

    Yep.  One of my favorite grills to be sure.  I've been known to flip a marinated skirt steak or two.  [​IMG]

     And bingo on the smoked salsa.  Also will use a grilling wok for the peppers and onions gives them a nice rustic char.  

    mmm
