Step 1
Stir the Chili Powder (1/2 tsp) , Smoked Paprika (1/2 tsp) , Cayenne Pepper (1/4 tsp) , Ground Nutmeg (1/4 tsp) , Salt (1 pinch) , and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) together in a small bowl.
Step 2
Get out the Pork Shoulder (8 lb) and rub that mixture all over it.
Step 3
Then heat the Olive Oil (1 dash) in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat. Brown the pork shoulder for about 2 minutes on each side to bring out the flavors of the spice rub.
Step 4
Pour in the juice of the Limes (3) , Tequila (1/2 cup) , Chicken Stock (2 cups) , Fresh Cilantro (1/4 cup) , and Onion (1) .
Step 5
Let it come to low boil, then cover the pot with its lid. Reduce the heat to a simmer and let it go low and slow for 6 hours.
Step 6
When it is done, remove the pork shoulder from the pot onto a large cutting board. Use two forks to shred the meat off of the bone and fat back. Transfer it to a bowl and pour a cup of the cooking liquid on the shredded pork. Mix it together.
Step 7
Then assemble the sandwiches. Toast the Whole Grain Hamburger Buns (10) then pile on the pork, a couple of slices of Avocados (to taste) , and a couple of spoonfuls of Salsa (to taste) . Enjoy!
