    @20stone & @caliking - not being familiar with the way these heads come to you, do they still have all the brains and muscles in tact?   If so do you eat or not?   

    BTW - hats off for one of the most off the charts cooks if seen on here!!   
    Re sourcing the heads -  the first place I had lined up only had veal heads. Frozen, and with little cheek meat compared to the heads we ended up with. Backup source was a meat processor that's not far from us. They do goats, lamb, chicken, pig, beef . Driving up, they had goats roaming in the front pasture that looked damn tasty.


     A customer of theirs was about to get busy breaking down a whole cow in the back. 


    I walked in, asked for 2 cow heads, and they let me pick from about 15 or so unfrozen heads hanging in the cooler. I selected the 2 that looked fresh and with more cheek meat than the others. Took all of 10 mins. 

    When I was picking the meat off the noggins, I was surprised at how meaty the extraocular muscles were, and there was a good bit of meat on the face besides the cheek meat. You pick the glands and other tissue out (that's when Pops said "but you left a lot of good stuff behind"). Didn't eat the eyeballs because beef eyeballs are chewier than I like.

    And passed on the brains too because I'm not into prions. Gotta draw the line somewhere.

    These leftovers smell pretty good


    I did not quite appreciate earlier how much noggin sauce went into your creation.

    You're gonna need more than salve tomorrow...
