    Figured since I had the smoker going I would throw the side dish in too.

    Cut up a head of cauliflower and added granualted garlic and a little pepper. Put just enough water in the bottom of the pan to steam the veggies and cover with foil.


    When the cauliflower was tender I drain out the water and added the cheese and then back into the smoker uncovered.


    As things are cooking


    All done. Very cheesey and it came out great. I will definately do this again


    Thanks for checking out my pics

    I used a jar of Cheese Whiz. It is the jar in the background of the pic. Temp was around 230-250.

    We love cauliflower with cheese. That sounds really good too was there much smoke flavor. Does it go with smoked wife?

    Thanks again everyone. It was great and I will be making it again for sure.

    It was great, the smoke flavor was pretty mild. But I didn't have it in the smoker uncovered for terribly long. Maybe 25-30 minutes, just long enough for the cheese to get nice and hot and change color a little. I stirred it a couple times while it was smoking too.

    Personally I'm not very good friends with Cauliflower, but I'm sending this to my sister to check out.
    I bet you the next time I fire the smoker up she will beg me to make this for her.

    Anybody done this, just straight smoked, no steaming? I'm just trying to figure out how long they might take, so I can make them with some pork this weekend.

    Figure cauli by itself until almost cooked, then add the cheese?

    I have done just cauliflower (no cheese) straight smoked. I sprinkeled with olive oil, salt, CPB, and some tumeric - give it a good toss to mix the seasonings. Smoked it at 225° for about 2 hrs, turned out awesome!

    Sorry so late getting back to this. I haven't been on here in a while. I did add some water to the pan and cover with foil for a while so they did "steam" at the start. Then like you said...cook until almost done and add the cheese. Then go a little longer to finish.
