Burnt End “Carnitas” Tacos With Mustard Slaw

Summertime = BBQ time. “Burnt ends” are the “oysters” of BBQ. They’re the most flavorful, tender, buttery pieces of smoked brisket and everything a meat lover like me craves. Nestled in a crispy corn shell, piled high with homemade mustard slaw, sliced jalapeños, shredded Jack, and a BBQ sauce drizzle, these tacos will leave you counting down the days until the next #TacoTuesday. I dare you to eat just one!
