But Smokey Moe's doesn't have a smoker/pit! How can you be called Smokey whatever and not have a smoker? That's a question I need answered...

I know Liquid Smoke is an actual product and I've used it on jerky, sauces, marinades, etc. But it's a small sub for the real thing. There's also a product called Kitchen Bouquet that's great for stews, sauces, gravy, but you got to use it sparingly...Kind of off topic. but there it is

Thanks for all the suggestions. I did try the crockpot suggestion this weekend, and the meat was tender ... but still not quite the same. And while I agree there are better BBQ places out there, this really isn't a BBQ taco (although they will give you BBQ sauce if you ask). I personally don't care for BBQ and just eat the taco plain. And besides that WASN'T my question!!

I find it funny that people who haven't tried it, are so quick to criticize it. So for you that haven't tried it, I would say that a more accurate description is a shredded beef taco. The meat is extremely tender, very juicy, and very flavorful. It might be the brisket cut, but I imagine you could easily make it with a chuck roast, etc...

From what I was told, factual or not, their barbacoa tacos are brisket tacos, not actual barbacoa. None the less, not my fav but they are not bad...

I've been wondering to. Based on you're post OP , I went and tried one. Not bad. They'll do for when I can't get to my fav BBQ place and just want a brisket taco since there's a TC on every corner.

I've had some like it before but a friend made it. He said he marinated it in Italian dressing and crushed up garlic overnight then seasoned it(salt & pepper) the next morning before putting it in the oven for around 10hrs. .

Thanks!! Do you cook it with the dressing, or do you discard after marinating?

I would definitly discard the marinade otherwise you will have a greasy mess with all of the oil in the dressing. Take it out of the marinade, pat it dry and then use some kind of a rub on it before baking or cooking in the crock pot.
