Tex-Mex Pulled Pork

Pork shoulder is wonderful when smoked over a wood fire. It creates excellent pulled pork for tacos, enchiladas, burritos, sandwiches, etc. My wife enjoys my Tex-Mex version better than the standard BBQ pulled pork. There is no set recipe as I just use what ingredients I have on hand. I normally buy pork shoulders when they are on sale. This is a compilation of different cooks I have done.
