I would like to cook it in a manner that isn't brown and braise then serve.
Have been considering smoking then braising.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
A couple of things. If I were going to smoke it I would smoke it at a low temperature for a short period of time, at most 40 to 60 min. Veal has such a delicate flavor that you probably don't want to much smoke. Rather than braise it I would probably then wrap it in foil with onions and any aromatics you might want and then finish it in a low temp oven, 275. I would probably remove it from the foil for the last hour of cooking so you get a crispy crunch on the exterior with a creamy fatty interior. Veal breat is fun to cook with. Realize these times are just guestaments since I don't know the size or weight of the veal.
I see the weight of it, 2 to 3 hours and I would probably only smoke it for 30 minutes.
Make a pocket between the bone and meat and stuff with a ground veal or pork sausage mixture. Then cook and smoke slowly.
Thank you both!
I was thinking of treating it as I often do with garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, herbs and citrus, but may cut back to just s&p and citrus with consideration to veal's delicate flavors.
Personally I am not a huge fan of smoke and citrus
