Default BBQ Beef Heart

Hey All,
I had a guy at work come up to me today. he had a beef heart given to him and wanted to know if I could smoke it. I have NO experience cooking a beef heart. My initial thoughts were brine it like a corned beef and smoke it. Any body have any experience or ideas on this???

I have never cooked it, but I have eaten it. The way I had it was grilled 'a la parilla'. It was sliced and skewered and cooked over hot coals. It wasn't charred that much, which leads me to believe a moderate fire. It was delicious, but, it is a very lean muscle and needs to be cooked to fully done, as it is really tough raw or underdone. Yes, I know that.

I have never had heart. However, I've heard some folks claim it's great when done up fajita style and used for tacos.

I cooked beef heart for the first time this year and pan seared it and left it medium rare and it was really good. Here is the link I got the info for and some decent pics on how to trim.

Beef heart is best cooked as a steak or thin strips for kabobs as previously mentioned. Delicious beefy taste. If cooked well texture will be tough. So the goal is medium rare to medium at most.

Kiss method would be best

What they said. I do it time to time thinly sliced, hot and fast over hot coals aka open it.

I won a TD with it. Don't smoke it. Best if sliced and cooked fast and hot on a skillet and served with a good salsa on a warm tort.

We pickle venison hearts if that's something that might interest you. Great on a cracker
