The Cook

  • Add some hickory wood to your coals or smoker then let it cook at 250F for three to four hours. All the liquid will be absorbed into the pork making it extremely tender. Remove from grill or smoker and then pull the port apart using two forks. If it is not easy then let the pork cook longer. When the pork is ready, slice up the Avocado, Tomatoes, Onion, and lettuce. Put the beans in a bowl and then let everyone build their own tacos.
