Has anybody tried smoking beef tongue?
Years ago, after accidentally discovering that smoked corned beef is a lot like pastrami, I had a tongue sandwich at a deli. Then I saw tongue at the grocery store (HEB in Austin, TX in the late 80's).
Peel off the skin and smoke it low and slow and you get a lot of tongue for sandwiches....a LOT more tongue than you need. It was cheap and we were on a budget so I eventually gave it another shot. It was good, but somehow....viscous...maybe undercooked?
I had my fill of tongue and have not touched it for over 20 years since then.
Is there some secret to doing it right? Soak it first? Select a smaller tongue? Maybe the answer doesn't matter because I NEVER see tongue in the store here in Richmond, VA.
