Smoky HaleOUTDOOR COOKING WITH SMOKY HALE

On Dealing with the Discovery of a Culinary Masterpiece

By Smoky Hale

The annals of cookery and cuisine honor the rare occurrence of a masterpiece of gustatory creation. These giant, quantum leaps of inspiration that would earn Nobel prizes in other fields, earn immortality on the palates. Memorable dishes that exploded from a sparks of genius bear names like Beef Wellington, Crab Louie, Chicken Marengo, and sprinkle our repertoire of foods like brilliant stars on a clear night.

Few of us are rewarded with the opportunity of witnessing the birth of such a stellar creation. Fewer still can participate. But, what I offer to you now is such a spectacular creation that it must, even by the severest standards, be considered a member of that galaxy. Only my inherent modesty controls an effusion of adjectives. Pride demands that I let you judge, so as to hear the sweet sound of superlatives from your lips.

Like most premier creations, this one arose from a combination of different and unlikely ingredients. As charcoal, saltpeter and sulfur combine their bland identities into explosive gunpowder, so these humble elements meld to push the palate to cry "havoc!"

Those of faint heart and frail disposition perhaps should read no further. This noble viand demands a hearty commitment to enjoyment. The auspicious alimentary arrangement begins with beef tongue, fully effused with flavor, sensuously draped within a filmy sheath of particular pork, gently grilled in the musky mist of savory smoke.

With more care than normally exercised in the selection of a spouse, one should choose a worthy beef tongue. Scrub it vigorously in clear running water. Then simmer it gently, for two hours, closed in a fragrant bath of two quarts of water flavored by: three bay leaves, two cloves garlic, one medium onion, two ribs celery, 1/4 a medium bell pepper, tsp. thyme, twelve juniper berries, two whole cloves, 5 whole allspice, 1 t. each, salt and pepper. Remove from the heat, allow to cool, and remove the skin.
