Smoked Pork Taco Salad

Leah Robertson


My husband has is a "smoker"! He smokes meat that is. During Spring Break, he smoked a pork butt roast for company and we had left over meat to freeze. I tried one more recipe before I froze the rest, and it turned out so YUMMY! If you don't have a "smoker man" like I do, you can use any cooked pork roast for this dish. The smoke taste just give it a extra layer of flavor.
