Khan, thanks for that post. Now I know what items are out there to help me experiment with "beer can chicken". Any preferences on the beer? I think the chickens are pretty generic.

I've read that you may want to use a stainless steel container for the beer or water instead of a beer can. It appears that the can coating material gives off toxins when exposed to grill heat.

For this use, I would suggest: cheapest available.

Wow - you've named some of my favorite foods. Thanks!

Now, regarding fresh chicken livers, any mexican supermarket will have a good supply. They also have calf brains for those so inclined.

This thread is making me hungry.

I really like liver, especially with applesauce. I used to eat it as a snack while preparing a chicken for roasting.

The logic that one hears is: The liver filters out toxins and bad things, so it must be full of toxins and bad things. But a little Internet searching shows that it's not so clearcut:

WikiAnswers - Is organ meat such as kidney and liver good for you

The Straight Dope: Is liver good for you? Isn't it full of pesticides?

I would venture that you shouldn't eat huge amounts of liver, but in general it's not bad. Personally, I just don't like like it; but the cat does.

I 'member when, too. Back in ol' Red Stick, more than a quarter century ago. Lotsa blacks and Cajuns there, I guess.

you left out the nastiest of them all, beef tongue. close second is flavored frozen chicken fat

there is a famous british chef who cooks bone marrow, forgot the name. I think he was on Bittman's show last year. i've seen chicken feet served at a dim sum place i've been to, i didn't have any. along with most of the things on the menu.

tried kimchee in korea. would have had more if it wasn't for the peer pressure. and there is like 100 kinds of it there, they make kimchee out of anything.

Tongue and heart are great; I pester the local farmers for them.

All true chefs in the world, including American ones, like to cook with offal. It is tastier and allows more varieties. In fact, they sneer on steak houses, calling them "heat and serve" restaurants. Now, think about it and you would have to agree. What else to do to a steak but to heat it?

True. I forgot that option.

However, I never have steak tartare, or carpaccio. I have not even tried sashimi. I don't think it would kill me, but cooking makes food taste better, IMO, even when the meat is rare. Man discovered fire for a reason, no?

Tongue tacos. On a street corner, with a greasy pushcart grill, a little chopped onion, some chiles, and a cold beer. Absolute heaven.

Peruvian anticuchos are the best marinated and grilled organ meat I have ever tasted. If you ever get a chance...
