We use our beef tongue to make barbacoa. I bet it would reallt be great with some smoke!

In our house we'd eat deli sliced tongue on rye with thin sliced cucumber and hard boiled egg or slow cooked in a sweet and sour tomato sauce over mashed potatoes. Now the only time I get it is in taco joints.

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!

And . . . if you're having trouble finding beef tongue, ask the people behind the meat counter at the grocery store. They will often be able to order a tongue in for you and give you a call when they have it in.

I've never tried tongue but probably would give it a shot if I had the chance. If I ever brought it home and threw it on the smoker though, my wife and daughter would NEVER, EVER eat another thing I cooked on it...

I would skin it first if you are smoking it....Other wise you loose the smoke flavoring from the removed skin.....I love beef tongue for tacos and barbacao. Very good stuff if cooked right, but I have never smoked it.
