Smoked Pork Tacos
Smoked pork is always amazingly delicious. Savory, smoky, melt-in-your-mouth flavor packed in a tortilla, topped with cheese, lettuce and salsa is definitely a win for dinner.
My husband is the smoker in the family. He has a pretty sweet smoker set up with a charcoal kettle bbq grill and a Pitmaster BBQ Temperature Regulator. It works great, and it cost a whole lot less than the name-brand smoker set up.
This pork can be used in so many ways--in tacos, over salads, in rice bowls, as a sandwich, in a wrap, in mac & cheese, etc. etc. etc. If you think it sounds good, give it a try!
It also freezes really well, and so we often cook up 2 at a time, and portion the leftovers into freezer bags for delicious easy meals another day.

1. Preheat smoker and set to 225⁰. Add desired woodchips for smoking (applewood, hickory, mesquite, etc).
