View Full Version : Beef cheek

05-27-2018, 02:03 PM
Bought a beef cheek to try to smoke. It was 2.3lbs in the package. After some trimming I may have about 10oz of usable meat to smoke. Over half the pack was hard fat. Is it always like that? Or am I better off going to a Mexican supermarket and seeing if I can get pre-trimmed.

I get mine at Walmart and they are well trimmed. I will check with my favorite Mexican market and compare fat/price because Walmart usually only have 1 or 2 packs in the meat case.

Walmart as well. I doubt I get 8oz of edible meat out of that.

I have some for tomorrow's smoke. I just looked at them and they are processed by Swift, not Rumba.
