Yeah, cooking with the tongue in can cause an off flavor. Usually they cook the tongue in a separate foil pouch and mix the meat back in to the other meat when it's all done.
If you are just buying a tongue,... simmering it allows you to skin it easier. Then you can smoke it, braise it or whatever to finish it off.
