    This is a tako (octopus) that I recently smoked. The hole in the head is where the beak was.

    I forgot to take the "after" pics. I was too eager to eat it. It turned out ok but not great.

    Thanks for the advice from glued2it, richtee, and low&slow.

    Smoked octopuss huh..... Now that you got our attention, tell us more. If I walk up to the meat counter and ask for octopuss I do think the meat market manager will laugh me out of the store !!!

    Looks like something straight out of area 51. Had octopuss one time and wasn't impressed. Maybe it just wasn't done right.

    The only time I ever had octopuss is out of those little Goya cans and at Sushi Bars. I never seen one that big. When you smoke it, is it still kinda rubbery?

    The meat is not rubbery but firm. Its softer than beef jerky but its almost like dried meat. The kind of tako used in sushi bars is a different type so I can't say if the texture would be any different if prepared this way. Next time I will try and post pics of the finished product. But only if I can retain some self control and not immediately pig out on it. I also had to cut off the ends of the legs because the were getting downright crispy. Its really not gross looking after cooking and slicing. And I don't think there should have been that hole where I removed the beak. But it was my first one done solo. There is also a really good post on smoked tako at the Virtual Webber Bullet website.
