Top these wild pig tacos with a serving of lettuce, cheese and tomato.

Once you’ve slow-smoked pig shoulders, the pulled meat makes excellent stuffing for tacos, enchiladas and any other Southwestern or Mexican dishes that calls for tender shredded meat. You can also do the same process in an oven or covered grill and with any part of the pig.
