My grandmother grew up in Brooklyn and fondly remembers having smoked beef tongue quite often. They live in Virginia now and can't seem to find it anywhere and are hoping that I would have some more success locating some in the city to send down to them. I've tried a few Polish butchers in Williamsburg which got me nothing but some strange looks - I am not sure if it was a language difficulty, or a "who the hell eats that" issue. I also tried the butcher on 2nd Ave between 9/10th Sts, but no luck there as well.
Does anyone know of a butcher that has smoked beef tongue, or could at least order it for me?
