How was the tongue? I have never tried it. I would  probably be a little hesitant to dig into it. I'm sure its awesome and I'm probably missing out.

you are missing out it was totally awesome. very tender very flavorfull. boiled it for 3 hours in beer, water, bay leaves,onions, garlic and pepper. then smoked on hickory for two hours after peeling skin. walmart had the 3.5 pound tongue for 7 or 8 bucks. you cant beat it. they also had cheek meat which is apparently even better than the tongue. i just didnt go there yet.

I never looked for "Cheek Meat" (except when filleting a Bass), but although I never saw beef tongue in grocery stores, most of the the small butcher shops around here have tongue.

LOL---Yes, but ours aren't as sharp as the ones on the other side of the Delaware.  


Remember, George crossed over for a reason.

rib pictures are coming shortly. just went down for a two hour nap at 225 wrapped in tin foil and sprayed with apple cider. their next phase is an hour on the grill smothered in sweet baby ray's honey barbecue sauce.

tongue did take smoke flavor. not a real big ring but flavored  very nicely with two hours of hickory.

If you got a decent hispanic population then wal mart will have tongue and cheek.

LOL---The only reason you only have to pay a toll to go from NJ to PA, and not from PA to NJ, is if you had to pay to go from PA to NJ, PA would soon be overpopulated, and the NJ State police would have to mow the Garden State Expressway every week.

Now everybody can see what we mean about when a PA guy agrees with a NJ guy, it must be true!   


Hope you still love me!  

This has to be the only state feud that nobody ever actually gets mad at each other.

Kinda like a friendly cross-town rivalry.

BTW:  My son's wife is from Manahawkin, NJ.

PS: I too apologize for the hijacking!  These border wars can be disrupting.   


Porked and I just like to add a bit of humor now and then.

I have to agree with Ross on this one...


you are missing out it was totally awesome. very tender very flavorfull. boiled it for 3 hours in beer, water, bay leaves,onions, garlic and pepper. then smoked on hickory for two hours after peeling skin. walmart had the 3.5 pound tongue for 7 or 8 bucks. you cant beat it. they also had cheek meat which is apparently even better than the tongue. i just didnt go there yet.
If you had gotten the cheek meat also that would have meant you were "Just Ribbing us with Tongue & Cheek..."

Sorry, I had to....
