Shoulder Clods: Round 2

I’m working on a wet rub for the shoulder clods.  I’m testing this today on a small sirloin cap roast:

  • 1 reconstituted Ancho chile (seeds removed)
  • 1 reconstituted dried chipotle  (seeds removed)
  • 1/4 cup smoked paprika
  • 6 mashed garlic cloves
  • 1 tbs ground comino
  • 1 oz Mexican oregano (find this at La Milpa)
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbs kosher salt
  • 1 tbs achiote/annato extract
  • the juice of a lime
  • beer (as needed to add fluid)

I ground this up in my small food processor into a paste.  Fairly pungent stuff.  Will add photos..

Here’s something from one of my homies.  Seguro que hell yes!  Time to crank up the smoker,  compas!

Here’s the smoker in action:

I think I’ll do this as a dry rub.. I have ancho & chipotle in powdered form. May need to hit Penzeys for granulated garlic..
