    Very good! I made in a slow cooker and we finshed on the grill to crisp up and was perfect....LOVED!

    Was a hit with the whole family. I think I’ll try the lard next time.

    Fabulous! Tweaked the recipe just a bit, put the whole dish in my smoker for the first 1.5hrs then finished off in oven. Used Applewood in beginning to add another layer of flavor. Serve with chopped cilantro, onion and jalapeno! Wow! Tons better than restuarant ...
