    Smoked Veal Cold Cuts in my offset smoker

    I was in the supermarket looking for inspiration. I was looking for some cut of meat I haven't done in a while (or preferably not at all, but that's a bigger challenge). To my surprise I found a veal roast. Great! I figured this is a perfect job for my offset smoker 'Rude Boy'. I figured I could smoke it, let it cool off, and then cut thin slices that resembled roast beef, so I could make me a delicious sandwich. So, that's what I did!

    I trimmed some silvery membranes off, but there was very little trimming needed. I then applied 2 tbsp of Hank's Signature Steak Rub, and fired up my smoker. Using 100% oak wood. I ran it at 120-130° C (250-265° F). After 2 hours exactly the meat hit 62° C (144° F), so I took it out and tented it loosely with alu foil. I let it rest for 1 hour before I started slicing. Man, it was juicy! It was pull apart tender (like a brisket), and tasty. You could definitely pick up the rub flavors. The veal is very mild/gentle in flavor, so boosting it with a good rub is great. I think a good Cajun rub would be even better, gonna try that next time. Either way, if you can find a veal roast in your store, you gotta try this. It is veal-ly good

        That is an unusual find. You must be a brother from another mother for sure, I have some veal cutlets that I have a great recipe in mind for

        Also got a chuckle out of that second shot with that lil ole roast inside of that Big Bad Rude Boy. Man you could create an apartment inside there !! Good work as usual Hank !!

          Thanks! Yes, I saw that when taking the photo. Will have some garden work done in two weeks (by a company that have caterpillars), the old boss kept staring at my smoker today, so I'm gonna treat them to some good old 'cue when they work. Should fill the smoker up then.

        Man that looks so good. We just cannot get that nice white veal over here because of the animal activists. It is normally a dark pink to light red. Only if it comes from Europe where we can get true veal like at D'Artagnan. I love veal, Sweetbreads, chops, and roasts, like yours.

          Thanks! Hmm, I had no idea about it being hard to find veal due to activists. Darn trouble makers.
