  • 2 Whole Pork Butts
  • 2-3 tbsp Adobo Honey or your favorite BBQ seasoning
  • Yellow Mustard for binder


  • 2 cups Beef Broth
  • 12 oz Favorite Light Beer


  • 6-12 Flour Tortillas
  • 2 cups Shredded Jack Cheese
  • Favorite BBQ Sauce
  • Chopped Red Onions for garnish
  • Chopped Cilantro for garnish
  • Sour Cream for garnish


  • Place your pork butt on a baking sheet, lather with yellow mustard all over and generously season all sides with Adobo Honey (or your favorite BBQ seasoning) in order to completely cover the roast.
  • Place them in the fridge, uncovered, for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight.
  • Preheat your Oklahoma Joes Highland Smoker to about 250F. Add some wood chips or wood chunks if desired for extra smoky flavor.
  • Pull your pork butt out and place on the smoker to cook until 165F internal (about 4-6 hours).
  • Once the pork butt has hit temperature, pull it out and place in a large foil bin. Fill into the bin your beef broth and light beer. The liquid in the bin should come past 50% of the pork butt’s height, so add more or less if necessary.
  • Tightly cover your bin with foil and place back on the smoker at 250F to smoke until the meat is tender to probe and shreddable (another 3-4 hours).
  • Once the pork butts are done, pull them off and let them rest for 30 minutes.
  • After the rest, pull the pork butt out and shred them up.
  • Add some to a bowl along with 1.5 cups of your favorite bbq sauce and toss it.
  • Lay out your flour tortillas and build them with a handful of shredded cheese, shredded bbq pork and then a drizzle of more bbq sauce.
  • Fold them over and set to the side
  • Heat up the Oklahoma Joes Blackjack Kettle Grill to 400F with a cast iron skillet. Add your tacos to the skillet and sear them for 1.5-2 minutes per side or until the tortilla is crispy and the cheese has melted. Pull them off once done and let cool.
  • Garnish your tortillas with chopped red onions, chopped cilantro and sour cream. Serve and enjoy!
