Smoky Pulled Pork Street Tacos

Hold the asphalt please 

Pepé was a little confused when I said we were making street tacos. He thought we were going get some asphalt from the road and make it into a taco. His head must be full of gravel. LOL His little chompers might be able to handle that task, but I think I’ll pass and eat these delicious smoked pulled pork tacos with our Jicama Mango Slaw instead. It’s nice have various toppings on hand for you and your guests to customize your street taco to your liking.  Some might want it a little more spicy or sweet than others, so having options is always a nice thing. When assembling these tacos, I must confess I don’t play by the rules. I like just one tortilla instead of the usual two layers of tortilla. I think the tortilla is a “delivery mechanism” (Thanks Nick), and I only want enough to wrap my good stuff up and get it into my mouth.
