    I remember eating it often as a kid and loving it. Very tender when cooked right and it was usually in a real nice tomato sauce over mashed potatoes. It's good stuff.

    Tongue and cheek = tender tasty meat! Nicely done!

    Straight up smoke, no rub of nothing? How would you get the skin off if you didnt have a pressure cooker, a quick boil?
  4. Was wondering the same. Would love to smoke one. We have always slow cooked in the oven. Tongue burritos are the BOMB.

    I think of it as a super tender, rich, pot roast kind of flavor when done right. I think it's just the look of the thing that turns most people off. Once the tastebuds and skin are peeled off, it's just a hunk of triangle-shaped meat.

    Thanks for the post - I have been meaning to do some tongue. I used to get it at the deli all of the time, but have never tried smoking one myself. [​IMG]

    Heheheh feeding kids good food that wont kill them can ONLY lead to something entertaining. Either they like the food and are surprised, or you get to laugh a lot.

    Just make sure to feed them outside, incase they dont like it... :D

    Tongue is very good any way it's fixed. So is the backbone of a heifer and it's ass too, plus I love shoving ground meat into intenstinal linings and seasoned with ground up plants, and cleaning the guts out of old sows and chopping their shoulders off and smoking, cooking or grinding them and cook the ass off one at Easter too, after getting it pickled-drunk and smoked with old tree chunks. I love yanking the tits off a clucker and chopping them up into chunks, throwing them into cackleberry soup then rubbing them with crushed up wheat gluten and charring them up in a swaddle of plant grease into 'nuggets', too!
    Guess it's how you look at things...
  9. Gory my man, down right gory, but if it turns you on, have at it.

    Put tongue into large pot, cover with water, bring to boil, simmer for 2 to 3 hours.

    My Grandfather was a farmer in Ohio. He also raised steers and there has been many times that I've had beef tongue and I have to say it's really good if you can get around the whole tongue thing. I've never had it smoked before but I'll lay odds that its even better that way. Off topic but since he raised steers I've also had beef brains, heart and liver. All very good if prepared right.
  13. O.K. I,m off to the market. I'll pick one up and add it to the smoker this weeked.

    Thanks tony111 for the post.
    and thanks to stajk for the info for removing the skin.

    I'll let you know how it goes.

  14. Hey dutch, I realize this is an old thread, But what is your tongue recipe. I am a tongue fancier and would like to try smoking one.
  15. I am collecting tongue recipes. I have eaten it baked, boiled, fried and in lengua tacos, Kosher deli  tongue sandwich etc. Now  I want to smoke one.

    Warning, My wife just looked it up. She vagley remembered reading something about Tongue years ago, it is considered an organ. And people with gout should steer clear of it. I remember my Grandma and my mom boiling it up in a pressure cooker with some seasoning. Smoking it makes it sound even better if possible. Thanks for the thread.
