You can also try this method, which is deep-fried in lard, just not in the vast quantity carnitas usually are. That said, I have a friend from Michoacan who makes enormous portions of lard-fried carnitas at home for parties, so it is certainly possible to make at home. Make sure you have a good ventilation system or do it outside (I do all my oily stuff in a wok or Dutch oven set on a gas grill outside.)
