Mimi Moto Taco Soup

Written By: Smokehouse Products

The Mimi Moto is a forced air gasifier stove. By gasifying wood instead of burning it directly (like on an open fire) the extracted gasses burn as a nice, clean flame. Smokehouse BBQ Pellets make an ideal fuel for this set-up and one-pot meals make for easy clean-up. Taco Soup takes all the flavors a taco offers and eliminates the need for counter space from the equation. Easy to vary for your liking, the protein can be made from any kind of ground or chopped meat to a vegetarian protein like tempeh or tofu.
