Lamb Shoulder Barbacoa
Grab a good book, because these smoky chile-lamb tacos practically cook themselves. An uninterrupted afternoon over indirect heat is just what a tough cut like lamb shoulder needs to collapse into a shreddable, succulent filling; finish by tossing poblanos and limes onto the grill for a nice char and deeper flavor.
Recipe Summary test
The banana leaves lining the foil bundle are optional, but worth seeking out because they keep the meat extra-moist and give it a green, aromatic oomph. You can find them in Latin and Asian markets or most grocery stores (in the freezer section). If you can't find them, you can still get the meat extra-moist by simply lining the foil with parchment before wrapping.
