bone marrow recipe

As any reputable chef will tell you, there is no part of an animal that cannot be cooked. This smoked bone marrow recipe will show you how to use beef bones to make “butter of the gods”.

Quick tip: Preparing the bone
Thinking of cooking a bone marrow recipe? Here’s a quick tip for you. Bones tend to rock around, making it difficult for toppings to stay on them. A good way to deal with this is to level off the bottom part of the halved bones. This way it will securely sit on your plate/cooking rack, and the flavoring will not fall off.

Smoked Bone Marrow Recipe

You will need

  • Beef bone, split lengthwise
  • Seasoning
  • Salted butter
  • Garlic
  • Shallots

This is an extremely simple recipe. Begin by spreading the seasoning liberally over the top of the bone marrow. Then put the bones in the smoker (or over indirect heat) at 250 F for ~1 hour.

In the meantime, while the bones are being cooked, start preparing the butter sauce that we will use.
Use a bowl to melt the butter. Chop the garlic and shallots up really fine, and add them to the butter. When the mix has molten down it can be used on the bone marrow.

 About 10 minutes before the bones are ready to come off the smoker, apply some butter sauce over the bone marrow (use a spoon or a brush). Repeat this right after the beef bones come off the smoker.
Your “Butter of the Gods” is ready! You can scoop the bones out with a small spoon, or use a butter knife and spread it on crackers.
Enjoy, and have fun on your smoker!
