Started out with some meat that I was not even remotely familiar with. Kobe Beef Cheeks. I asked my butcher " What does this resemble?" " Short ribs" he replied. Hmmm, I thought, "can I smoke them?" I asked. He said " I don't care what you do with them, just don't bring them back around here!"

So I started up the Supercollider after I figured out where the extension cord was ( I assumed it was solar powered, You know what happens when you assume)
selected my ingredients

Finished the cook, cooled the meat and cut my ravioli's, stuffed and sealed them with a fork and set aside.

They were really beefy. More savory than short ribs, tons of deep tissue and fat flavor. As I would say....smokin! Thanks for askin.

Nice looking cook! Beef cheeks are realllly beefy, aren't they? Don't want to isolate that meat too much.

And for the record, I don't think they taste anything like short ribs. It is a fatty, hugely intense beef flavor. I think your butcher was just trying to get you out the door..... :)

You are so right Marty. Fatty and immense beef flavor. Not the last time I wll do one of these. Most recommendations were only to braise them. OMG what a great cut to smoke. It took on so much smokey flavor and the I opted to braise it afterwards with some simple Asian spice and it was like BAM. Full on flavor, that will stand up to anything bold.
Thanks for your comments,
Jed

I've been called Beef Cheeks by Wilkat a few times, but I've never cooked beef cheeks!

That's a beautiful plate of food! Great job!

As a fellow ravioli slinger, I say very nice job and I'd sure like a plate! Would you describe the flavor of the cheeks similar to oxtails in beefy richness? I've never had them but would love to try them!
