Pineapple Pulled Pork Al Pastor
There's nothing like a juicy pulled pork sandwich, especially one inspired by a famous taco. Maybe it's the brine, or that I'm just easily satisfied, but it's been my experience that if you simply season aggressively and cook the meat over smoky coals up to a certain temp, you'll be rewarded with tender, moist, and very flavorful meat. Slather it with the grilled pineapple salsa for the full 'al pastor' experience.
Any ground chili pepper will work in place of the ancho.
Make sure you make the pineapple salsa; it's great on anything, including ice cream, so don't let the last of those hot coals go to waste.
