Perfect! I love the barbacoa at Chipotle, but all of the internet recipes were bogus (or for authentic Mexican barbacoa, which is a completely different thing). Now I don't have to pay $1.50 for a couple of extra shreds of beef -- I just pile it on! Nice touch to add the other recipes! (But could you figure out how to make their hot tomatilla sauce -- I'm stuck.)

Glad to have found this recipe because we just moved to a town with no Chipotle restaurant. I've made the recipe twice and it was awsome both times. Last time I cooked it in the crockpot overnight - 8 hours on low. The meat was very tender and shredded easily. This will become a regular meal in our house!! Thanks for all your efforts Todd!

This recipe was awesome! Our two teenaged sons devoured the burritos and argued about who could have the leftovers. I used a rice cooker then mixed the butter, salt, lime and cilantro into the cooked rice - it was great. Otherwise, I followed the directions exactly but found it only took a bit over 3 hours for the meat to shred.

Fabulous and flavorful! With the adobo sauce and cilantro rice (which would make a great side dish), it's a good Chipotle clone. I couldn't find any chipotles, so I roasted jalapenos instead. The yield of 8 large burritos was about 16 for my guests, so invite a crowd, eat hearty, and enjoy!

This was wonderful, my family loved it. It took a long time, but I made it ahead and we had it around for quick meal, just some meat and cheese on a tortilla. My husband says it tastes like the real thing.
