   Sunday mornings.
   
   Clean the cabeza, removing eyes, ears, etc.  Discard the tongue.
   Leaving it will impart an odd taste to the meat.  Wrap the cabeza in
   a paper sack, along with onions, garlic, and cilantro.  Wrap THAT in
   burlap.
   
   Dig a hole 2 feet deep and build a driftwood fire in it.  Wait until
   the fire goes to coals, then cover them with ashes, followed by the
   cabeza, then about 2 inches of dry dirt or sand.  Fill up the hole.
   Add 6 to 8 inches of dirt or sand over it.  Build a fire on top of
   the ground. Use slow-burining wood such as oak or mesquite.
   
   Leave the cabeza in the hole 12 to 18 hours.  For example, if you
   begin cooking it at 4:00 p.m., it should be ready by the next
   morning. Serve with tortillas.
   
   Serves one vanload.
