Tacos de las Águilas

Landed in NYC late last night, crashed in Brooklyn and had a fantastic 230 Frost welcome back.  It was Sunday, it was glorious out, and food needed to be cooked.  I brought my unused smoker from LA and we dove head first into the scrumptious art of smoking shit.  You’re gonna wish you had smell-o-vision for this one.  Or  you can get the same effect if you see me , Adam or Nate in the next week because I think we’ll reek of pork and campfire for at least that long.

I’m sorry, but with a smoker in your arsenal, your only bet is meat.  I prefer to be veggie and usually claim “pescatarian” immunity when pressed, but if I was really going to reprazent, smoked broccoli or salmon wouldn’t cut it.  There are few better tastes than smoked meat, and we decided to start with pork shoulder. I may now need a triple bypass and my Greenpeace membership is being revoked, but goddaaaaaamn.  That shit was good.
