Smoked Tamales
Heres a great reciepe for Tamales. You can smoke up a new batch of Que or you can use the left overs from a previous cook.
Meat
1 Pork Roast
1 large Chicken
3 T garlic powder
6 T chili powder
3 T cumino
1/2 c Veg Oil
1 T pepper
2 T salt

Smoke the pork/Chicken I like to use both and mix it but you can use one or the other. In large bowl Mix oil, garlic, chili powder, salt, pepper and cumino. Shread the meat and add to spice mixture.

Masa
2 lbs Masa Four
3 T paprika
3 T salt
1 T cumino
3 T chili powder
3 T garlic powder
2 c Veg oil
2 quarts Chicken/pork broth
Mix the spices into the Masa flour. Now slowly add to 2 cups of Oil and then work in 2 Quarts of warm chicken/pork broth. (you can save the drippings from the cook or you can use bouillon. I prefer drippings.) Mix Masa with hands until it is the consistency of thick peanut butter. If you need you can add warm water or more Masa flour to achive the right consistency.

Corn Shuck
1 package corn shuck
Soak corn shuck in cold water for 1 to 2 hours. Remove from water and shake dry. seperate shucks and place on towel.
Build the Tamales
Spread Masa onto corn shuck. Start at wide end and spread to cover 2/3 of shuck. Leave 1 to 2 inches from narrow end and 1 inch from one side (see Picture).

Add meat and then roll from side with masa and then fold end over leaving end with masa and meat open. Place in steamer basket. (I use a Pasta pot and strainer)

Place strainer in pan with small amount of water. Tamales should not touch water. You want to steam them not boil. Cover tamales and bring water to boil. Reduce heat and steam tamales for 2 hours. Add water as needed. You don't want to boil the pan dry. After 2 hours remove tamales from pan and cool.
