Less than 2 hours before Eagles game time, I was told to cook the pork so its ready after the game. I lit the BGE while I prepared the setup and supplies. The plan was to make pork tacos and since the forecasted rain never arrived, why not smoke the pork. It was a small 1.7 LB pork shoulder roast from Giant. I covered it with garlic powder, paprika and smoked Hawaiian salt. I cooked it at 225 degrees for about 4 hours. That was too long for such a small roast. It ended up dry but the spices were great. We added shredded lettuce, chopped green onions, shredded cheese and super spicy green salsa to make the tacos. With all the ingredients the tacos turned out good with the dry meat. I need to learn how to cook smaller things on the egg.
I’m headed to the Cowboys @ Redskins game tomorrow. The game starts at 8:20pm and we’re leaving West Chester sometime between 2:30 and 3:00. That will give us enough time for a few drinks before the game. Its going to be cold so there’s no need to spend too much time outside before the game. I probably won’t be home until 3 or 4am on Monday. Good thing I’m off all week. 🙂
Also Go EAGLES!!!
Except for the Eagles, the day was good. I struggled starting the BGE. I think I need to store the charcoal in a plastic tub if I’m going to continue to keep it in the basement.
We are back from our road trip vacation. We ate a ton of food, saw lots of football and walked many many miles. Definitely one of the surprises of the of the trip was walking next to Rick Bayless on the street during our last night in Chicago. I didn’t recognize him until Erin basically slapped me in the side multiple times. 🙂 I only got some blurry photos but it was very cool since we ate at his restaurant 3 nights before.
