When you can’t make lamb, goat or beef head barbacoa in a pozo, you go to your favorite barbacoa taqueros y taqueras. From Sunday morning traditions to more modern takes on barbacoa, we’re taking a deep dive into barbacoa in Central Texas. We’ll first spend some time with La Santa Barbacha, where they put more of a modern take on barbacoa for those everyday eaters. Then we’ll drive out on a Sunday morning to La Pulga, or as some of you might know it, the 812 Outdoor Market and get it by the pound. Guests include Rosa, Daniela, Uriel, and Doña Landaverde from La Santa Barbacha and Don Miguel Moreno of La Santa Rosa.
Barbacoa, from Sunday traditions to everyday goodness, barbacoa continues to evolve and surprise us. In this episode, we talk barbacoa basics before chatting with Joel Garcia, owner and pitmaster at Teddy’s Barbecue in Weslaco, Texas. Joel shares his barbecue and barbacoa story and how smoking beef heads takes barbacoa to the next level.
