Smoked Pork BBQ Tacos include tender, delicious, shredded pork butt or pork shoulder piled high with your favorite taco toppings!
Each weekend, my hubby smokes some type of meat for the family. It can vary from ribs to pork shoulder, brisket, etc.
Last weekend, pork was on sale at our local grocery store, so we stocked up!! He smoked it all day and by dinnertime, it smelled and looked fabulous! We used the meat in tacos, but you could use it in quesadillas, sandwiches, by itself, etc.
Ultra-flavorful and tender, this smoked pork shoulder is smoked low and slow, creating the most amazing, melt in your mouth pulled pork for Smoked BBQ Pork Tacos!
The whole family, kids included, loved these tacos and we were able to take the leftover meat and put it in the freezer for another meal down the road!!
