I've been craving some beef cheeks, so I decided on making some barbacoa today.

Last night I made up some of my ancho chili marinade and let the cheeks bathe in it overnight.

Today I took the cheeks from the marinade, wrapped them up in banana leaves, stuck them in a pan, and now in the smoker for 4 hours at 225. After 4 hours, I'll pull the meat from the leaves, put the meat back into the pan, seal it with foil and let it go for a few more hours.

Soaked some pintos overnight, and now have them simmering with some homemade chili powder, onion, garlic, jalapeño, and bell peppers. Dumped a little brisket in too!

Taco shots later!

The smoking part is done. This is smelling amazing! My German neighbor lady is almost giddy now that I told her she would be getting some of it as well.

Pulled the meat from the banana leaves and now have it in a foil pan all sealed up. It takes a long time for this to finally break down to shred.


Next pics will be tacos... quite a few hours to go.

Man that looks like it will be delicious! I've got to try out your method, because I love barbacoa. Can't wait to see the taco pics!
