    I am a few weeks from trying one of the recipes included....

    1. Cooking a cow's head sort of creeps me out. I have recommended the other Barbacoa recipe that Robb posted awhile back that was made with lamb.

      Even so, I really do like Barbacoa! Very good - I just don't ask what it is made of ;-)
