    I'm with Old Grump, and my mustard of choice is Lowensenf, I initially discovered this when I lived in Berlin, but recently found it at World Market. Some years back it was available at better food markets, but I quit looking when I found it at World Market. (Lowensenf means Lion Mustard, there are several really good mustards from Germany, they really spice up Brats and other wursts.)

    5 quart, 6.5 quart, and a 7 quart oval large enough for a turkey. Small 4 quart and under crockpots aren't to handy in my house.

    Update:

    I took the tongue out an hour ago (from the pot) and put the stock/brine on the stove to simmer. It was 1:00 PM here. At 2 PM, I brought it to a rapid boil, added the meat and turned down to simmer.

    I googled for 15-20 minutes on how long to cook a beef tongue and I must say that most folks are idiots. I got responses from 3 hours (no mention of size/weight) to '4 hours, add potatoes and boil another 4 hours'. :eek:

    Seriously? :confused:

    I'm thinking 1-1/2 hrs covered and an hour sans lid. 3 lb tongue at a slow roll fer an hour should finish it up nicely.

    Some folks shouldn't talk of cooking. :mad:

    BTW, the smell is... nice. :p

    Whipped up a batch of coleslaw and biscuits. Wild mushroom gravy as a topper. And rice.

    The wait begins.
