Next start your GMG and set it to 450, once heated sear all sides of the ox tail until crisp and browned. Remove your ox tail from the grill place in Tin tray or other cooking dish.

Sear to a perfection!

Add 1/2 a can of El Pato sauce and a handful of jalapeños (depending on how much spice you like it). Return pan to the smoker, turning it down to 330. Let the Ox tails smoke in pan for 1 hour turning once during cooking.

Then add the water and cover tightly with tin foil. Return to smoker for 2 1/2 hours. Let them cool slightly and then shred the meat. Season lightly in pan with salt and pepper and add a touch more El Pato Sauce. Return to grill while you heat the tortillas. Spray tortillas lightly with cooking spray and grill until they start to brown on edges. Compete your tacos with Crema Mexican, Jalapeño and Cojita cheese. Or top with your own favorite ingredients.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees, anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About Our Recipes

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it…
