Default Batman and Robin Pulled Pork Nachos!!!

Here lies my TD entry into the nachos TD. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. To view the rest of the fantastic entries visit the infamous BBQ Brethren TD Section!

So for the last couple weeks I've been re-doing the kids rooms, with my schedule, that basically means I've been workin' until 2:30am, sleepin' by 3-3:30am for two weeks straight. I'm actually starting to get tired now. This past week I stained Peyton's new loft bed, she's pumped to say the least!



Anyway's...A while back I got a 5 lb. bag of SM Season All that I split with my wife's uncle. He paid for his half with a bottle of Cachaca, some andouille and a package of anchiote paste. Well, I finally broke out the anchiote paste to make my first attempt at Cochinita pibil.

I got myself an 8 1/2 lb. pork butt and cut it into strips.



The ingredients are below, I subbed cider vinegar for bitter orange because, well they just didn't have that at the local grocery store.



Then I whizzed up all those ingredients in a blender and put it all in a ziplock to marinate in the fridge Friday night.





Come Saturday afternoon, I fired up the egg with lump and some of those new hickory chunks I got to about 225*-250*. I cooked it on the grate for the first few hours with the reserved marinade on the bottom shelf. Then I put the pork in the pan, covered it in foil and cooked it until it was fork tender. I know it's not exactly authentic but I was fresh out of banana leaves.



While that was smoking (actually two weeks prior to that smoking) I did up a little Batman action for Drew's new room. Moving up and out of a toddler bed, whoo hoo!!!









Meanwhile...the pork came out looking top notch!



The pork shredded up and waiting for it's demise. These pork shreds also made their way into some home made taco's today. (my first attempt with my new tortilla press) A successful adventure and a lot of fun BTW.



While my wife was hooking up a spider for the Spider Man wall. (also actually happening two weeks prior). I hooked up a nice smooth cheese sauce along with a roasted green chili sauce from our friend Rick Bayless.









The end result was better than I could have hoped for. A kick arse Batman room! (that I'm going to cry about repainting when he's 12 )





and some super farking duper Batman (left side) and Robin (right side) pulled pork nachos!!!

This is unbelievable. I am 22 and I would still love to have a wall in my room painted like that. The food and the room looks amazing. Great work!

I'll be right over N8, I'm assuming you'll want to go with a frog themed room, no?
