  1. This was my second time using out smoker and was preparing pork butt for tacos for a work gathering. Enjoy the pics! If any feedback, great and any questions ask away!

    It all looks really good, nice cook.
    Always love some tacos, hell yeah!

    Carnitas it is not, more like a Puerto pibil. Especially if your rub contains a good amount of achiote (annato).

  3. Sure. Carnitas is cooked in lard. I dont have that, but the rub is a very carnitas rub. Used a bit of a mojo brine.

    Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, what day is it?!
    Carnitas aren't rubbed on hump day or any other day.
    Mojo, pibil whatever....

    But Mike, regardless of what it is or isn't, it looks good and my bet is it tasted better than it looks.
