Al Pastor

So I have tried to make this several times . Using several different recipes. All of them were just ok . So I tried again today and bang I got it now. Even the wife was sending pictures to her friend about how much she liked it.

    Very very nice!

    You know you nailed it when she's sending pics to her friends , instead of rolling her eyes at how much time/effort you spent to make dinner :smiley:

    I see the recipe calls for loin but yours looks more like butt which would be traditional. Except I’m not seeing much fat in the pan. Which did you use?

    The recipes I saw called for butt, but apparently, loin is fine too. =) I found a pretty good video taking you thru the whole process (cooked in an oven). The ingredients were similar, but not identical to the recipe @Eggty posted.

    Focker I believe has posted a great recipe foral pastor but it was done on the Joetissierie. I can't seem to find it currently to verify if it was he who had posted it. If he sees this maybe he can post it again.  It was fantastic.
