I have an idea i want to try and am looking for some input.
This is a recipe that we make while camping, that I would like to try in the smoker.
The recipe calls for several onions (preferrably vadalia).
1) use an apple corer to punch a hole in the onion, but not all the way through.
then take a knife and make 2 cuts into the onion 90° apart (make an "X") once again don't cut all the way thru.
2) Then take 1 tsp. of beef boilion, (cubes donot break down enough) place that in the cored hole you made then fill the rest of the way with butter, also spreading some butter in the knife slots.
3) take your stuffed onions and wrap them in heavy foil and place directly into the coals of your camp fire for about an hour or until soft to the touch.
These taste awesome, just like french onion soup
What I would like to try is bypassing the cooking in foil and coals, and simply place the onions in an aluminum baking dish and place them into the smoker uncovered.
I thought there were some posts about smoking onions, but that must have been on the old forums.
