Default Smoking a Beef Heart

Normally I just toss the Heart into a Crock Pot, season with assortment of liquids and spices, come back 8 hours later, done deal.

I have a new CS Q and have been smoking everything in sight to get a feel for the smoker and I'm considering smoking a Heart.

The meat weighs about 4 lbs, will cut into 3 slabs, was considering a beef rub, not sure what wood as I have a great selection that came with the Smoker, smoke at 225 until done, not sure what temp finished product should be?

Open to all and any suggestions.

That's a new one to me, bruddah. The only advice I have is to assess the fat content and wrap in bacon if it's lean.

It sounds like it might be on the chewy side. Maybe pound it and/or treat with meat tenderizer
