I wish I could have you guys over for dinner, but my Governor says only he can do that....
 I'm going to wrap in a moist covering and bury overnight in coals. I have a lot of tail-gunners working here right now and I usually cook something different every week-helps keep moral up ! This will go into a taco style lunch on Monday. Something different ;D

(X2 what Southside said.)

You must be having menudo with that. ??


BTW - I've seen Giant a few times - great movie - but I don't remember a cow head BBQ.  Guess I better watch it again.

Sure-- near the beginning of the movie just after Rock ties the knot with Liz , he throws a party to introduce all the neighbors and in the food line she is offered a scoop of calf brains.Liz wilts and seeks shade under the nearest tree within a 100 mile radius. "Aw honey,youall will get used to it" he comforts her.Not sure if he meant the shade or the BBQ......... :D :D :D

Its a long movie. Lots of details but not many trees. Thats probably not the only scene Ive forgotten. Maybe I went out to the kitchen about that time.  :)

At least youve got some trees around in case someone faints.

In ~ 2009 I was on my motorcycle one winter tooling through one of the windiest places on earth? In southern Mexico in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, the narrow neck of lower Mexico. 
FWIW, when riding there you'll be in a constant wind lean similar to a fast corner on a bike. 
it may also be the worlds largest collection of plastic bags festooned on the scrubby bushes which are mostly all that grows there. 
I saw a food stand along the road in one of the poorest areas of a poor country. many there don't speak Spanish as they're indigenous. 
I walk up and am trying to figure out if the meat is Baa! or Moo! ??? I don't like lamb, sheep or goat meat at all! The lady goes into the back behind the canvas shielding the cooker area and comes out with a 55 gal drum lid and a pile of meat with a goat or sheeps head. No thank you, I'll pass on the animal head meat.
My wife's mamaw made pork souse mostly from the head "stuff", thankfully was before I came into the fold. 
When I worked in meat packing we used tripe and a few other choice ingredients for commercially made souse. 
Animal heads should become non-human something or other?  :D

I got some Wagyu beef for my birthday.  My wife was at the end of her rope, so made a dinner for when she got home from work at 20:30.



 

 

 

 

she was so tired and over it she only ate a few bites of steak, but did eat half a pine cone (daylight donuts version)

Kantuckid: I grew up in a Navy family that moved every 12-18 mos. so I was exposed to everything from escargot (french snails) to carpaccio (Italian raw beef). As an adult I traveled a lot and ate live animals in Korea and scavenged the beaches in the Caribbean for whatever we could find to eat. That said, head cheese is not for everyone and I certainly understand!
Doc: Your dinner spread looks terrific! You're eating the king of the beef world! Cheers and Happy Birthday.
We're making teriyaki pork chunks tonight with jasmine rice and a tossed green salad. Simple but good.

I was hesitant the first time I was offered head cheese but found it good in a sandwich, my college room mate wouldn't go near it. :D Is that what you are referring to as souse?

Head cheese and souse are of the same type of "stuff". I never could get past the ingredients which are often part of an animal that IMO, don't qualify as food? When I worked at Ohse Meat Products in Topeka, KS we had routes covering KS and a 2nd plant in Okmulgee, OK. Fred Ohse the German heritage old guy who began the company had an obvious influence on the original product lines, like head cheese and souse. Fred kept a dressed goat carcass hanging in cold storage there for his own home enjoyment-this was well before the USA had enough immigrants who ate goats to make it worth selling in places like KS or OK where our inspection limited us. 
We bought truckloads of crock material mixing bowls which were sold full of head cheese which was poured into them. My Mom used one for many years as a large mixing bowl for holidays such as to mix dressing. Pretty much the same mix of interesting animal parts were sliced in the heavily gelatined loaves of souse. It had to be chilled well before slicing or it was too soft. I ran the packaging room there.
Traditionally the gelatin comes from what you put in the stuff not an added ingredient. 
Every night on 2nd shift hundreds of pounds of frozen port tripe were ground in a huge grinder which made it into small chunks which when thawed got chopped further.
FWIW, the man we called "Sauerkraut John", based on his demeanor not his German birthright was the honcho of the show, a job called the Sausagemaker. John was a Cornell graduate and came from Germany with his family to NY state, having been pulled from his meat packing apprenticeship by the father who moved them all out of Nazi German in the 1930's. His own family owned the plant but he was required to serve an apprenticeship to work there. I think it was 7 or 8 years long and he'd maybe gone halfway in his. Not like the 4 years/8,000 hours I served as a mechanic, which seemed pretty long to me?
I got to know John really well as I was a Spice Blender for ~ 8-9 months, a company pick job but union wages before I was chosen as a foreman. Every!!!! recipe came from John and was stored in a safe which a select few knew the combination thereof. When I reported for work in the afternoon, the safe was opened "for me", not "by me" and I kept it under wraps until I left to mix the spices using resins, powders and such and an electronic scale in a large area full of spices in big tin cans and many barrels of spices. We bought items like peppercorns in 100# bags by the truckload a an e.g.. 
They burned me out fast working there and I left by my own choice. Went to work at 1:30 a.m. and began transcribing orders off of a telephone recording device then I wrote the production order for that days sausage kitchen and the packaged order types and totals for the packaging room I ran. 
My favorite "free food" there was to pick the tidbits off the pork shanks as they came out of many hours of heavy smoking.

What cool history! I've been lucky enough to work with a few extremely driven individuals; one from the top of the jet development program and the other person, who fled Germany as a 9 year old kid, became a major steel fabricator here in Los Angeles and is now a gazillionaire. Can't say enough about what you can learn from people who are driven, their lifestyles and into what they put their energy.

As far as foods I can't stand; I was a commercial fisherman for several years and of the different types of things I pursued, the ones I did the best in, like mako shark and giant spot prawns, I can't even bear looking at today. Something about being covered in their juices for days on end, no sleep and pounding into a vicious head sea, hanging on for my life, has left an indelible bad taste in my mouth. So, for all the fun stuff that my wife and I crank out in the kitchen, there are limits for me too!

I have always joked that i could "eat a rock" if it had chili powder on it. 
Fish wise I cannot stand the pickled herring my best KS friend snacked on! He spent summers farming in Iowa with his grandparents who spoke German at home.
Hillbillys often like several items I dislike-parsnips and especially turnips. I have grown to love Collard greens as even better than the spinach I've always liked. 
Rhubarbs another I cannot take!

my dad grew up working on a chicken farm, and at a dairy.  he could not eat eggs, chicken or cottage cheese for the first 10 years of my life.  the only thing i refused to eat, was breaded tomatoes.  i could eat raw tomatoes, and we put sugar on them.  the cooked stuff looked like brains to me. :)
