Directions:
Place the above brine ingredients in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil. When it comes to a boil remove from heat and refrigerate until it is completely cool. Wash and trim the beef tongues and place them in your large crock and pour the brine over the tongues. Make sure that they are completely submerged. You may have to put a small plate on them and use a jar full of water to weight them down. Place crock in the refrigerator. Let the tongues stay in brine for 10 days turning them every other day. Once they have cured for 10 days remove the tongues and wash and dry them and rub them all over with the liquid smoke. Then you can hang them in a cool dry place for 2 days. We used our store room in the basement. You can then freeze them until you are ready to cook and use them.
