"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The Taylor boys call this "Coca Cola Meat" I can it Mexican Kalua Pig.

Sorry about the no measurements. If you get one big pork butt, it's like 1/2 a cup of lard, 2 cups orange juice or 4 large oranges. As for the coke and salt. The salt is to taste but the coke add just 1 cup at the beginning. When the liquid starts to evaporate, add a little to carmelize the meat.

Then serve with salsa, guacamole, pico de galla and tortillas. Bueno!!!
