Thanks Hawk, the story and recipe on that site is exactly what I have been looking for. My first tamales were from a place called Doe's in Lake Village Arkansas. They have the look exactly like the ones on the "how to" section of that site down to cooking them in coffee cans.

My Mother N Law grew up in Lake Village AR across the River from Greenville, MS. I want to make her some for Christmas.


Yeah, I LOVE me some delta tamales. That's what we do, too for Christmas -great tradition.

Well I broke down and ordered 3 dozen some from Scotts
http://www.scottshottamales.com/ in Greenville, MS. Never had theirs, but seems hard to go wrong from a company in Greenville, MS.

...still plan on making some but couldn't resist. On-line shopping is just too easy.

Well despite having an order of 3 dozen on the way from Scotts I decided to get started yesterday morning. This started as a 9 pound Boston Butt. 3 hours later... spiced, shredded and ready to be rolled:



I'll probably finish them up Tuesday.

When I was a kid living south of Jackson,TN a big treat for us was to go into Jackson to the court square in the evenings and buy tamales from a man that sold them out of a little push cart. My Dad and I would make trips into town in the fall just to walk around the square and eat those tamales. I joined the Navy and went on a 10 month deployment into the Indian Ocean and after the deployment came back home for a couple of weeks to visit. After a few days back home I told my Dad that I'd really like to go to the square one night and get some tamales. He said that won't be happening...the guy wasn't selling them anymore because they had caught him rounding up stray cats and dogs and killing them to use the meat in the tamales. Said it had been going on for years...guess he was increasing his profit margin.

To this day they're the best tamales I have ever eaten. LoL

Yea that was a lot of work they better be pretty darn good.

I got 7 dozen and spent about 40 dollars in all.








It took right at 4 hours to assemble and tie them and another hour to cook.

LOL since mine arrived the same afternoon I finished making my 7 dozen I haven't tried them. However I will say they looked like the real deal.
