    Nasty weather here in Ohio today so I thought I would try something quick and different. I like beef tongue and thought I would try and add some smoke to one. The wife put it in the pressure cooker for 45 min. to loosen the skin. Then I put in in the smoker at 160 for 2 hrs. with some cherry chips. Out of the smoker and onto the cutting board and the rest is history. It turned out very moist and tender and MAN does it make for some tasty sandwiches !!!
    Sorry if the pics are to graphic for some

    I have cooked beef tounge before and made a cucumber sauce to go with it. I don't remember where I got the recipe but took it to a wild game dinner my brother was having and it went fast. It really is a nice hunk of meat inside all the skin and stuff and very tender and tasty. I bet it would be real good smoked, looks like you got it licked.

    I'll leave that to you, the only tounge I want in my mouth that isn't my own is my girlfriends.[​IMG]

  6. I eat it all the time at a local Mexican restaurant They serve it chunked on warm corn torillas with a side dish of cilantro, chopped onion, sliced lime, and hot sauce either green, or red. It's great

    This is the first post that I havne't liked on SMF, I could be sick (no offense Tony). Honestly, don't know why the cows ribs are so appealing and his tongue is so appalling but that's just the way I roll [​IMG] .

    Way back when, when we ran the slaughter truck, we would keep the beef tongues if the customer didn't want them.

    Once they where brined and smoked the taste and texture was alot like ham. Sliced deli-thin on a sammich with mayo and mustard them was good eats.

    While the finished product looked good, I would never be able to do it knowing it started out like pic #1! [​IMG]

    But I know a lot of the old timers and farmers round here love it. Heck my mom grew up on stuffed pig's stomach, and no, I'm not talking about pork bellies!

    Glad you enjoyed your smoke and giving you points for the job!

    Great stuff! Most people will cringe at beef tongue or as i like to say Lengua (spanish). I lived in Mexico for two years and found that this meat is VERY good. Lengua tacos are the BOMB! [​IMG]

    I bet that if you smoked this up and everyone on this forum tried it they would LOVE it.

    BTW did you peel the skin off of the tongue?

    When i was a kid, my mom would serve it to company and never tell them what it was.

    Lengua tacos are very good. I had them while I was in Monterrey. I just thought it was a regular taco. I didnt know what I was eating until I was finished eating it. But then I went back for more the next night. I guaranty most, if not everyone here, would like it if they ate it and didnt know what it was.
    That too funny!!!

    Beef Tongue is quite good cured and smoked, too.

    Finally, I found a thread for beef tongue. I was shocked at the number of posts of people who would have nothing to do with tongue. It's a muscle. Like the brisket, like ribs, like steaks. If you want to "dis" a particular cut, stick to internal organs, like liver and kidneys. I love tongue. But, then again, I was raised to have a broad view of various foods. Yes, I eat sushi, yes, I eat calves liver, yes, I eat oysters (raw, fried, SMOKED, or in soup). Hey, I'll try anything once. Isn't that the way to experience all that people love on this planet?

    Dis-ing an internal organ wouldn't be sensetive to the folks who like Liver and Kidneys. Hasn't this thread already been hurtful enough to the tongue crowd? Why do we have to be so hurtful? WHY!?
  20. Thanks, but no, don't think I can handle the tongue. Dam, looks awful.
