Cool weird or diffrent

Ok The wife and I have been living in a apartment complex for the last 2 years. It is a very nice place But no BBq or Smoker area available so my smoker and grill have been collecting dust in a storage garage for a while. We are moving into our new home in just under two weeks and I am prepared. I have 4 racks of ribs and a 10 lb shoulder in the freezer waiting for the blessed day. But I want to try something Really different What is the most unlikely Thing anyone here has smoked or grilled with success?

Beef heart kabobs. They were awesome. Can't cook em much past rare, but they taste extremely beefy but just a touch of organ flavor. Make sure put the veggies on one skewer and the meat on another since the veggies take a lot longer to cook.

Crisped up some beef tongue slices one time too on my Weber that I had already braised till tender in the oven. Made for a great sandwich. Shredding it is good on a sandwich too.

My next weird thing is gonna be pork brains. Can't figure out what to do with them on the grill or smoker, but I saw them in the frozen meat section at my small town grocery store and had to get them. Just too weird to pass up! I'm thinking blanch, peel, and grill with some sauce and chorizo and do tacos!

Chicken gizzards and hearts. Put them in a foil pan with butter and some hot sauce, stayed on the smoke for about 4 hours at 250*, were excellent!

If you've had that before let me know if it really is good! That is what my grandpa has done before with squirrel brains but I was too young to want to jump in and try it! If it is good I may end up just doing that with a few of em! Weirdness is good.

Pork brains, oh yes! With scrambled eggs (salt, pepper and hot sauce) oh yes, oh yes!
Taste is not unusual but the texture is very light... maybe like a Morel mushroom... which they sorta resemble.

Holy, freaking, cow, morels are quite possibly the best mushroom on the planet despite being $29.99 a pound when I've found them! If brains share anything with them they have to be good. Got them thawing in the fridge right now for tomorrow so I'll let you know what I think and if I can recommend them to sluvsmore too.

Smoked chicken lasagna is as exotic as I have gone.

This is always a crowd pleaser. Pork tenderloin stuffed with pico de gallo kountry boys sausage glazed with blues hog.

LOL no I snuck down to the garage a few times and did ribs on the 120 degree blacktop in florida on a hot day you only need the wood for smoke flavor the heat comes from the sun.A few buddies have smokers i have been allowed to help with. I am good to go. and more then ready.

I'd love to try that with a pork loin and try to stuff in slivers of pork liver. There's an idea for something different using your method of stuffing. I'm not sure that liver would be firm enough, you'd probably have to freeze it partially but not all the way since liver doesn't take well to freezing from what I hear. Maybe butterflying would be the better option and rolling it shut, but the stuffing way you did is just too damn unique.

Pork liver is the bomb. Just think of boudain or liverwurst and how good that stuff is!

Cool idea if you had a huge chicken breast to try that with chicken livers too.
