Tacos Tonight

Just put a 3 1/2lb chuck on for tonight's tacos. Rubbed it with Fajita seasoning and salt and pepper. I am cooking at 250 indirect till it hits 160 or so then gonna wrap it with foil May throw on a chicken so we can have both kinda tacos. Time will tell

    I use a skirt steak for tacos, cook it very fast and hot and then slice against the grain, thin.  I'll have to try a chuck roast sometime, sounds good!

    Looks good.  I bought some Dizzy Pig Fajitaish a while back.  It is really good stuff and would be perfect for your application.

    Now the chicken has been rubbed with the same fajita seasoning. I loosened the skin and bout turned this thing inside out. In the little Tupperware jugs my wife has some frozen guacamole and humus that will be part of the tacos
