    Beef tongue!!!

    I seasoned with webers Chicago steak seasoning. I know the seasoning will not penetrate the skin but it's a habit. Used a few chunks of hickory and smoked at 275 for about 6 hours. The last 2 I foiled and once the skin can be peeled easily it's done. I checked the temp and it was 195.

    Maribel did a salsa. After getting a nice char on the tomatillos and chiles. She added 1/4 onion, 2 garlic cloves, 1/4 bunch of cilantro and 1 tbs salt.

    Done and ready to chop once the skin is peeled off.

    If you look closely some pieces had a smoke ring

    Not a fancy cook and most of you guys won't give beef tongue a try but it's good stuff.

    Thanks for stopping by.
    Tony and Maribel.

    I've had tongue...once it's sliced it's a lot more appealing. :biggrin: That looks good.

    Tongue is great, you have some great color on that one. I usually pressure cook mine to get the skin off then smoke it, I will try it with the skin on next time.

    I luv Tongue. It is always a part of my families Thanksgiving dinner Tongue and a Chaudin (ponce). Best parts of the meal
  6. Hi there!

    I grew up on tongue - my father would scream that only a "stupid fink" wouldn't love such delicious tongue! So this made me smile!

    Happy Holidays! Your photos looked absolutely beautiful!

    Cheers! - Leah
