In this Video I will teach you how to make the best Cuban mojo Pork. We will marinate a sauce into the meat then smoke it to perfection. This meat is great alongside some beans and rice but would also be terrific on a cuban sandwich or some tacos.

Recipe in video and below is for 1 Butt – you’ll notice I am making 2 in the video – thats because I like leftovers – however everything I show you is for 1 Butt.
