How To Do It:

Indulge in a fusion of Mexican, Asian, and South African flavors, all encapsulated in one delectable bite. Deep-fried stuffed wraps are poised to become your next party trick.

Begin by obtaining a 500-gram deboned chuck roast from your butcher, and generously season it with a BBQ dry rub spice. To expedite the process, consider portioning the chuck roast into smaller pieces.

Fire up your smoker to 110 degrees and smoke the chuck for a good hour and a half, aiming to infuse that smoky flavor. Transfer the meat to an aluminum foil tray, and create a luscious liquid by combining BBQ sauce, Asian BBQ sauce, and local craft beer. Cover and braise until your internal meat temperature reaches 98 degrees. Allow it to rest for a good hour, then pull the beef into the juices and set it aside.

Now, alter the setup of your smoker to the braai/grill configuration, and add more charcoal if needed. High heat is crucial for the next step.

Place an outdoor cooking pan or cast-iron pan on the grill, apply direct heat, and add your cooking oil. Wait for the temperature to reach 180 degrees.

For the tortillas, encase them in a tin foil wrap and heat on the grill for a good 4 minutes, ensuring they become soft and pliable.

Next, take a double tablespoon of shredded chuck meat, place it in the middle of a wrap, add some grated cheese, roll the tortilla, and secure it with a toothpick.

Introduce your rolled wrapped tortillas, three at a time, to the oil, placing the toothpick side down first, and fry for 90 seconds on each side until they attain a golden brown hue. Repeat the process until all flautas are complete.

Add a squeeze of crema and avocado white sauce, a drizzle of your tomato salsa, and serve while hot. No one likes a cold flauta. Enjoy!
