Salsa Imperti Por Barbacoa

We have a timeshare in a home in Taos, NM and when we're there, we smoke meat quite a bit, especially for entertaining. Last week we smoked a mixed grill of Prime Ribs of Pork (4 lbs), coils of pork sausage, and a few chicky breasts--beginning with a great dry rub. After the smoking ceased, we put the meat on the BBQ grill just to get a slight caramelization and heat the meat up.
