Homemade smoked oxtails that can be eating alone or used in another dish!
Hey cousins! It’s no secret that my babies love oxtails! I swear y’all are trying to oxtail me out, LOL! Anyways, as long as you request the recipes, I’m going to upload them! In this post I’m going to show you how I make my smoked oxtails!
Let me just be upfront with you before we get started y’all! This smoked oxtails recipe is time consuming. For maximum results, you’re going to have to season the oxtails then let them refrigerate overnight. PLEASE, don’t try to season the oxtails, then put them directly into the smoker. You need the oxtails to really sit, and absorb the seasonings overnight. So don’t skip that step cousins!
After the oxtails have sit overnight, you’re going to smoke them ( well duh, right, LOL!!). I personally use electric pellet smoker, because it’s super easy for me to use. However if you have a different smoker that you’d like to use, you can do so. Also, I use hickory wood pellets!
