Recipe Thursday-Clemens Smoked Pork Butt Tacos

Posted on July 27th, 2017 | Posted in Main Course, Recipes

Summertime in Lancaster is all about the fresh corn that makes any dinner simply delicious! Although the corn was not our main course, these tacos highlight Clemens Smoked Pork Butts and fresh avocados. The pork was lean, tender and easy to shred after hours in the smoker and reheating in the oven, and the avocados ripened perfectly from our supplier. I have had the best of luck bringing in a 12 count of unripe avocados and allowing them to ripen at room temperature. Once they are ripe I move them to the fridge to preserve them until we are ready to use them. Almost nothing is more disappointing to me than cutting into a bad avocado!

Yield-4 Servings
Ingredients
1 Clemens Bone In Boston Pork Butt (221076, 2/10#)
1/4 cup pork and veal seasoning (990506, 4/24OZ, Magic Seasoning)
2.2# hickory wood chips (01869, 2.2#)

Taco toppings
8-6″ corn tortillas (559553, 12/60CT, Mission)
1/2 cup sour cream (HPH050, 4/5#, Crowley)
1/4 cup chopped white onion (00676, 50#)
1 large 6×6 tomato, chopped (01078, 25#)
2 avocados (01159, #1 green, 12CT)
hot sauce (991230, 4/1GAL, Bulliard)

Method
Smoke pork butt with wood chips for 8-12 hours depending on size. We saved part of the pork butt from a prior day and then reheated it in the oven. We wanted it a little bit juicier and tender so we wrapped it in foil with a vinegary bbq sauce on it and placed it in a covered roasting pan, with 1 cup of water in the bottom. We heated for 2 hours at 300 and then let it rest for 20 minutes. We then shredded the pork and assembled our tacos!
