Smoked Beef Cheek Barbacoa
- 10 lbs beef cheek
- 3 oz/1 container Smoked Out BBQ dry rub
- 3 oz kosher salt
- 10 tomatillos
- 2 large red onions
- 3 large yellow onions quartered
- 6 jalapeños, removed the stem, cut in half
- 6 avocados
- 8 oz of red wine vinegar
- 4 oz of water

- 6 oz fresh peeled garlic
- 1 oz whole anise
- 2 bay leaves
- 3 oz brown sugar
- 6 peppercorns
- 6 oz Kosher salt
- 8 oz mesquite wood chips
- 3oz Bits & Pieces Mexican Jerk dry rub
- Queso Fresco (optional)
- Bits & Pieces Tortillas
- 1 lb Chicharrones tossed in Bits & Pieces Mexican Jerk dry rub
- Trim the beef cheek of any excess fat, and silver skin, and break them down into smaller pieces for even cooking in the smoker.
- Rinse it under cold water to get rid of all of the protein liquid. Take a dry towel and pat the beef cheek dry.
- Begin to rub your meat down with Bits & Pieces Smoked Out BBQ dry rub along with kosher salt. After coating all of the meat with the spice rub and salt, place it on a sheet tray to marinate in the fridge for 24 hours.
- Prepare the Pickled Red Onions to allow 24 hours.
- Prepare your smoker by loading it with wood chips. Light your smoker and bring it to a temperature of 250°. After your smoker has reached 250° and you start to see smoke you can then turn down the temperature to 225°. Take the beef cheek and load your smoker evenly, let the meat smoke for 12 hours. Keep in mind if you are smoking in the winter you have to smoke for a much longer time since the temperature outside is much cooler than in the summer.
- After 12 hours, pull the beef cheek from the smoker, and see if you’re able to shred it by hand. If this does not happen you may need to place it back in the smoker for a few more hours. Season it with the rub and salt if needed.
- Serve on Bits & Piece Hatch Green or Hatch Red Tortillas, place meat, and top with the sauces, red onions, chicharrones, optional queso fresco, and micro cilantro.
