Beef Cheeks

Has anyone tried smoking beef cheeks to make breakfast taco barbacoa?

Any suggestions? Not sure if they sell it at H.E.B.

Yuppers! I do at least twice a month. Not too often because the ONLY place I can purchase beef cheek is a bit of a drive for me. Nobody.. Carries.. It.. Here..
Anywho.. I cook it up about the same as I would a chuck roast with a couple small exceptions. I let it roll for only an hour before I wrap it up, and pour the smoke on during that time. Then it goes for an all day cook at 250. Wrapping is important or it will dry out horrendously.

Oh, HEB carries it by the way. That's where I used to get mine. It's usually around the tongue and tripe area.

Beef cheeks are very popular here, slow roasted in the oven. Post pics if you do them please.

I've had good luck smoking them a bit first then finishing in the crock pot.
