  3. Put the shoulder onto the smoker and check on the progress of a nice bark and colour to develop (Probably around 3 hours) Lightly spray with water or a water and apple cider vinegar mix evry now and then if you like. When the shoulder has a nice colour wrap in alfoil and return to the smoker untill an internal temp of 205. You can increase the temp at this stage to speed up the process we had it around 350f. When done pull out of the smoker and rest covered for 15-20 mins.

  7. Combine 2-3 teaspoons of sriracha sauce with the rice until rice takes on a nice reddish colour.
  8. Add 1/2 can of corn kernels, and 1/2 can of kidney beans, 2 Tbsp of Lane's Honey Sriracha, chopped coriander, and 1 Cup of Mexican cheese. 
  9. Pull the pork into finger sized chunks and combine to the rice mixture.
