Smoked beef tongue - Page 3
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
I brine beef tongue, depending on its size, for 3 to 5 days, then hang it in a cool environment for several hours or over night to dry. The next morning I hot smoke the tongue at temperatures between 240 and 280 Fahrenheit on my gas grill over chunks of seasoned maple and/or beech wood for 6 -8 hours. After hanging it to cool I boil it for 3 hours and peel off all skin while still hot. Serve cold or warm, thinnly sliced with grated fresh horse radish. A traditional Easter treat from Southern Austria.
Without cure, you shouldn't hang the tongue, or any other uncured meats in just a cool environment for several hours or over night, unless that cool environment is consistently below 40° F.
OK, Great---Under 40° is fine!! You're good to go then.
