    Dia del Taco - World Taco Day

    Wednesday, March 31st here in Houston is officially being declared World Taco Day. The idea came from the Hispanic Dia del Taco movement stated in Mexico in 2007. A local owner of a Mexican restaurant called Pico's is promoting the idea which he hopes will eventually spread Texas wide, and who knows maybe nationally as well !!


    Although I'm not going to brave the crowds down in Houston, I'm going to celebrate by cooking the 5th in my series for the Taco Chronicles by doing Tacos al Carbon, a Houston favorite. I encourage all Texans, as well as non-Texans (really anyone who loves tacos) to participate with us.

    So next Wednesday, the 31st, SHOW ME YOUR TACOS !!!!!

    Taco day on a Wednesday???? Why not Tuesday!!

    ha. Well, you know it’s Taco Tuesday any day for me (made shrimp tacos last night!!!!) So I need to come up with something for this

    thanks for sharing! And looking forward to Tacos al Carbon!


      Looking forward to the write up. I'll have to mark my calendar; I am scheduled for me 2nd shot on the 31st, so I can celebrate that too. With a cold Tecate or Modelo


        Excited to see your run at this. What's your connection to the Taco Chronicles? Are you actually involved with the series somehow or just working through your versions based on their series as a tribute to it? I have watched several episodes and love the series and wish the girls would try some of them if I made them. It's pretty much Americanized tacos only for them. Really adventurous is using shredded chicken or steak instead of ground beef

        Also, as a completely unrelated side note your signature doesn't ever show anything for me. I'm sometimes curious to the tools you might have used for something, but when I highlight the sig icon, I just see the headers (Outdoor Cookers, BBQ accessories, etc.).


          Interestingly, March 31st is Cesar Chavez Day here in Califor-ni-a. He was a pretty cool cat who did some great things for farmworkers.


            Not that I'm supportive of a day for tacos, I mean, if you need a special taco day you're clearly doin' it wrong. On the other hand the 31st is my birthday, and I do love tacos, so I'll allow it.

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
