Tacos al Pastor Backyard Beer Keg BBQ Recipe After a long time researching a Tacos al pastor recipe, trips to Mexico City, learning from Chefs who do this everyday... I think I have a workable recipe for Tacos al pastor at home. The vertical Beer Keg BBQ helps a lot too!


Guajillo chiles 6 ((clean and seedless))
Ancho chiles 2 ((clean and seedless))
Pineapple juice 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Orange juice 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Vinegar 250 Milliliter
Garlic 4 Clove (20 gm)
Mexican oregano 2 Teaspoon
Cumin 1 Teaspoon
Cloves 2
Black pepper 1 Teaspoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Onion 1
Pork 5 Kilogram



1. Boil the guajillo and ancho peppers in a small pot of water, until they have softened.

2. Drain the peppers and add to a blender along with all of the other ingredients. Except of course the pork.

3. Blend until you have a homogeneous sauce.

4. Place the meat in a sealable container and pour over the sauce.

5. Mix thoroughly so the meat is fully coated.

6. Place in the fridge and marinate 8 - 24 hours.

7. Cook either on a tromp or grill on the BBQ or on a flattop.


8. Serve and Enjoy!
