    They sounded so good I decided to try Dutch's recipe for beef enchiladas.

    My brother asked me if I would coat it in my chipotle rub (he says he would eat whole spoonfuls of it) and so I did.

    The beef

    The rub

    I have tried this rub on brisket, and pulled pork and love it on both. (slightly altered/improved from before)
    1T kosher salt
    2t CBP (cracked black pepper)
    1t white pepper
    2t Hungarian paprika
    2 dried chipotles, ground (about 1-1 1/2T)
    1 1/2t brown sugar
    1t dried oregano
    2t garlic powder
    1/2T mustard powder

    Sorry for the lack of prep pics.
    Brought to 180 on the smoker and wrapped until 205 then pulled.

    Threw a thing of store bought rice (dry) into the smoker before I cooked it for the meal

    Not very smoky, a little but I guess 1 hour wasn't nearly long enough to pick up a good smoke flavor.

    The beef off the smoker

    Followed the preparation instructions and used mozz and cheddar/pepper jack cheese on the top.

    So good, so tender. The enchilada sauce I bought was rather lacking but I made up for that with more chipotle rub [​IMG].

    It was a great dish, thanks so much for the recipe Dutch!
    And thanks everyone for checking out my post.

    Hey fire...

    Fantastic looking meal. I love Pulled Pork Enchiladas, but beef sounds really good too. Your dry rice smoke has got me thinking about making Dirty rice in the know, hydrating it and letting it simmer in the smoker to cook and also take on some delicious smoke. In the past, I have smoked some stuffed peppers, and they took smoke pretty well....between the rice idea and the smoked eggs from earlier, nice job Fire. Points to you. [​IMG]

    Wow those look good. I'm definitely going to try those!

    I find that adding a little bit of cinnamon (believe it or not) can really jazz up the store bought enchilada sauce - sounds weird, but I learned it from a really good Mexican restaurant down here.
