I recently purchased the Essentials Grill Brush for me and my family. I continue to be amazed by the quality, service, and experience that I have with this company. I've purchased the Grill Mat, Burger press, and now the brush. I am thoroughly pleased with the products, and my gift recipients have all raved about them. Thanks, Grillaholics!

This is the second product that I have bought from this store and they are both fantastic quality. I contacted them with a question and they responded right away. They noticed my email was military related and went above and beyond to make sure that my family felt their appreciation for our service. A brand that actually cares!

I saw an ad for the grillaholics grill brush, early in the Winter, and decided to buy several to give to friends and one for myself. Everyone loved them! Since I hadn't used mine yet, and a neighbor raved about it to another neighbor, I also gave mine away. So I ordered another one for myself! I have grilled probably 5/6 times and it's Indestructable! I spreading the word! LOVE it!

Shredded Carnitas Tacos

Carnitas Tacos

Serves: 4-6 people


  • 1 (2 lb.) Shoulder Cut Pork
  • 3-4 C. Smoking Wood Chips
  • 1 White Onion, diced
  • 1/4 C. Fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Pack Soft Corn Tortillas
  • 1 Lime

(Dry Rub)

  • 1/4 C. Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 C. Paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Black Pepper
  • 3 Tsp. Cumin
  • 2 Tsp. Onion Powder
  • 2 Tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tsp. Sage
  • 2 Tsp. Thyme Powder


Cook: 2-3 hours
Ready in: 2.5-3.5 hours


  1. Mix all dry rub ingredients and massage your meat, generously, front and back.  (That IS what she said.)  **For the most tender pork, apply rub, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  2. Soak wood chips 20-30 minutes before starting your fire. Drain and place them directly on hot coals once smoker has reached 225-235 F (107-113 C).
  3. Place pork shoulder directly on the grill grates in the center. Close the grill lid.  (Remember to place your oven thermometer on the grill to help regulate temperature.)
  4. After about 20 mins, check the roast to make sure temperatures are holding. (After the first time, check periodically).
  5. Pork is done cooking when the meat thermometer is pierced through the thickest part of the meat and reads 190F/88C (typically 2-3 hours).
  6. Remove from the grill and let stand for 20-25 minutes before shredding. Pro Tip: Try using Grillaholics Meat Claws to make shredding stupid simple.
  7. With fire still burning, toss your corn tortillas directly on the grill just enough for grill marks to show on each side.
  8. Place desired amount of shredded pork inside tortilla and top with onion, cilantro and lime to garnish. Enjoy shredded carnitas tacos – a little taste of Mexico!
