Mexican potluck on Tuesday. Did some diggin' around and found this gem by Dave Katz

Followed it pretty closely. Added some Guajillo, Aleppo (use this in just about everything), and a little ground celery seed.

    Let's see some pics of it shredded.

    Did you add any seasoning after shredding? I find the earthy flavours of achiote dull a bit after the long cooking?

    You took that to a potluck? I don't think I could share anything that looked that yummy! :) That's a great dish for Cinco de Mayo.

    Cityplace, cook is still in progress. I will take a pic and post later when I shred. Recipe says to reserve the marinade in fridge. While butt is resting, add 1/2C OJ to reserved marinade and bring to a boil for a min. I will probably add some herbs/chile the day of, haven't decided yet?

    That looks AWESOME, and I am sure it will remind me of my beloved Cozumel when I try it! Thanks for that :-)

    What kind of setup did you use to collect drippings? Mine always become lava rocks in a tray.
