Terry has a party coming up for the National Championship football game (WAR EAGLE! GO TIGERS!) and i offered to make tamales for it, since I am not making them for New Years Day. Typically they’re made with a beef or pork roast, slow cooked, then seasoned for the filling. this time, however, I am going to smoke a boston butt, like one would for making Barbeque. Only with different seasonings in the rub: cumin, paprika, cayenne, garlic, onion… stuff like you’d use to make tacos or fajitas. I have a quart of homemade pork stock in the freezer to use for the masa paste. Anyway…pcitures will be taken , process recorded, and you’ll know how to make smoked pork tamales. The party is on the 10th, I’ll make the tamales Monday or Tuesday and freeze them. They microwave better than just about anything….
