    1                    beer
    3      teaspoons     chili powder
    1 1/2  teaspoons     garlic powder
    2      tablespoons   lemon pepper
           small         limes (juiced)

 Preheat pit. Mix all ingredients except beef together to make a marinade.
 Pour over meat in a non-reactive container. Cover and stir occasionally for
 6-8 hours prior to cooking. Cook in either of these ways:
 
 If you have the space, smoke the fajitas for about 30 minutes with pure
 mesquite smoke, then cook over direct heat (mesquite coals are best) for
 about 4-7 minutes per side. Baste with marinade while cooking.
 
 Cook over direct heat (mesquite coals are best) for 6-10 minutes per side
 depending on how done you like your meat. Baste with marinade while
 cooking.
 
 Immediately slice meat (at a 45 deg diagonal cut to the grain of the meat).
 Serve with guacamole and pico de gallo in warm flour tortillas. Figure 1/2
 lb. of meat and 3-4 flour tortillas per person.
