Any thoughts?
I think that sounds like an excellent plan, Patrice. The skin helps hold in moisture while cooking so if you're going to smoke it after removing the skin you may want to consider a mild brine soaking.

If you can get your kettle low and slow enough, you could wrap the skinned tongue in foil with some apple juice or beef stock after a couple hours since it won't take much smoke after that - and continue to cook until tender.

Let us know how it turns out -

And thanks for the idea!
