    Sounds good. But I can't help wondering who Ruff might me. There's a dog up the road from me named Ruff.

      Ruff chopped, means Chopped by an old dog, don't go barking up the wrong tree

        After cooking the pork for 4 hrs on 300 oven.
         
        chunk meat and bake a bit longer to caramelize, build your tacos

          That dog can cook! He need's to go on Letterman's "smart" dog tricks.

            My favorite Carnitas are found at a small tortilla factory and mexican food place in Hesperia,CA...my old hometown.  The Pork was roasted in 2-3 inch cubes, and sold by the pound. The outer edges of the cubes of meat were much like 'bark' or 'outside meat' when describing Pork BBQ, and the inside much softer and more 'tender'.
             
            We would finger-shred a cube for the contents of a Taco or Tostado, adding what ever else you wanted...for me the frijoles and onion was usually enough, but a bit of salsa was nice too.
