Oh, man Humboldt, you don't know what you are missing. The tongue meat is so incredibly tender and tasty. Plus, it pulls apart like fine pulled pork. I tell you, when it is done right, it is absolutely the best!
What I was told, is that you have to skin it or it will taste funny. Plus the tongue skin looks disgusting. I have never tried to make it for fear of ruining my taste for it.
In my experience, the corner taco places around here don't take the time to cook it the right way. But when my friends wife made it the "right way," it was just like the most tender beef you have ever tried. I think it could be a new cut for the smoker.
