Irresistibly crispy and tender, braised pork carnitas are a mouthwatering addition to tacos, tostadas or any of your favorite Mexican dishes. Similar to burnt ends, tender and juicy pork chunks are braised on the pellet grill until deliciously crisp and golden on the edges with hints of wood-fired flavor. Serve inside homemade corn tortillas and top with queso fresco, zippy jalapenos, red onion and lime.
Due to the subtle spicy aromas present in Mesquite Hardwood, we recommend using Mesquite Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.Note: This recipe uses Pit Boss Pulled Pork Rub seasoning.
For more smoke flavor, smoke the pork cubes in a grill basket for 2 hours on SMOKE mode before braising.
