I begin with flap meat, carne asada rub, and fresh juice from orange. Let marinate for full 24 hours. (Sometimes, I include minced garlic as well).

Prep the pit with 100% hardwood briquets and a hunk o' lump (mesquite) for that traditional delicious smokey flavor.

I like to go slow, indirect (start to finish)

First libation finished, time to plate. Homemade Mexican brown rice, Hass avocado chunks, and refried black beans topped with cheese of the day (Ordinarily, I would go with a queso fresco, but had to use Gouda here), accompany the carne. Oh, and topped with plenty of fresh salsa, of course (mmmmm... with cilantro). Have a margarita! :D

Outstanding! The orange would be a nice change of pace from the lime that seems to be the most popular. Do you grow your own avocadoes, too?

The local store has "fajita beef" on sale this week so I'm hoping it might be something similar.

Thanks for responding, Brad. Yes, in this case, there is enough sourness in the rub that makes the orange balance out the flavors with its sweeter appeel. Oh how I wish I had an avocado, even though the trees are awfully messy. But besides the citrus, I have another serious cash crop-- pommegranates.

Pomegranates? I'll take "Things That Don't Grow In Wisconsin" for $100, Alex. :wink:

I can imagine that trying to grow one there would put the health of the tree in jeopardy. You sure do have the beers though! :lol:

I just love beef cooked over mesquite, and your pics show why. Your meal looks fit for a king. 8)

Ah shucks... Thank you again SG. I seem to have good luck cooking Mexican food. Carne asada is probably my signature dish, aside from my beef jerky.
