Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I just finished braising beef cheeks for today's dinner and got to thinking that they might be candidates for a low and slow smoke treatment like a brisket. Has anyone tried this?

  • campCook,
    They are just what it says, the cheek material off a bovine. All butchers have them but they usually end up in hot dogs or stew meat. They are on display at most mexican style markets here in Phoenix such as Ranch market and Food City.[p]I was turned on to them after reading Tom Colicchio's book (think like a chef)where his diners gave them rave reviews.[p]The ones I bought yesterday were not trimmed so I trimmed excess fat and "skinned" off a tough membrane. I braised them for three hours at 300 degrees (cover on) let them cool over night and rewarmed them today.[p]It is the most succulent meat you will ever eat. I cooked several short ribs in the same batch and everyone was going for the cheeks.[p]Anyway, I see the potential for a dynamite possibility here but need to think through the possibilities. No reason to reinvent the wheel if someone else has done it.

  • campCook,[p]sounds like what we know here as Halibut Cheeks.[p]used to be dirt cheap, since no-one wanted anything but th filet, but now that everyone's caught on...[p]three times the price of regular halibut meat.[p]dang! was much better before :)[p]HS
