      The cool thing about this oxtail is that it is locally raised free range Western Illinois beef. We buy it at a small processing plant where people bring their 1/4 or 1/2 steers in to be fully processed.

      The oxtail sells for $3.00 a whole tail.

    Damn Troymeister, you certainly have a way with those tails. I have had a life long love affair with oxtails. My mom and grandma(s) cultivated this in me, I guess. I've never thought of smoking before braising, but I guess its time for this old dog to pursue new tricks..lol Thank you so much for sharing your cook with all of us.

      Nice one, troymeister! I love those caribbean flavors. I'm all for oxtail, but my wife (very) less so. I'd love to try this, and I do all the cooking anyway, which means it will happen. Two questions:

      1. Any particular recommendations for how I should cook it?
      2. If you smoke it first, then braise it, doesn't the (indoors) kitchen smell too much of the smoke?

        I put it on the smoker for 2 hours or so with a very light apple wood smoke. Maybe 1 small chunk. Then in the pot with all of the other goodies including 1/2 habanero and butter beans, onion, bell pepper, tomato, thyme, Jamaican curry powder snd some other things. No problems with the smell in the kitchen.

        I can post the method later. my wife takes over on this one on the indoor part.

        Thanks troymeister. Will definitely try this. Habanero is one of my favorite chili peppers.

        "I never considered smoked."

        I've never considered, period. My wife refuses to eat the sausage I smoke, cause she found out what the casings are made of. Never mind she still eats ALL the sausage from the store with edible casings.
