Smoked Cabbage

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I thought I had posted this here, but didn't find it. In light of the recent cabbage posts, I thought I would throw this one in the mix in case anyone wants to try this.

Had to have a veggie to go with our rib eye steaks and the fatty, so decided on cabbage. Cored out the center and put in about 1/3 cup of butter. Topped off with some diced bacon and brushed with olive oil. Smoked with maple, pecan with a chunk of apple thrown in. This is some good stuff for those who have never tried smoked cabbage!

There was no need for extra butter. This has a delicate smoked flavor that does not overpower the cabbage flavor.

How long did you smoke it and did you loosely wrap it with the foil or leave it open? Looks great and tasty!!

This one was a fairly small head (about 3 pounds) and took a little over 5 hours. I just left it on the foil as in the first pic and smoked for 3 hours. The I just folded the foil up around the cabbage and pinched together at the top and increased the heat to about 300 degrees for another 1 1/2 hours. Then opened it back up and reduced the heat back to 250 for another half hour until it was time for dinner.

It's very good stuff maynard! I tried it some time ago when Marvin posted it (http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=51975) and have done a few since. Thanks for reviving a wonderful change to the cabbage eats

Pandemonium, if you cook this in with corned beef, it would soften up more. Just don't put it in as soon as raw because it's basically cooked, just al dente.

BAMAFAN, if you just copy and paste the part you want you don't have to type it.

Thanks everyone for your kudos.

no i meant as compared to when you cook it in a crockpot? when i do the crockpot put cabbage in with the raw meat and cook em both all day, so the cabbage is nice and soft.

Sorry I misunderstood your question. This one wasn't real soft. To make it softer, you could add a little liquid to the foil and wrap it tight for an hour or so. That would actually braise/steam it done.

You know you could almost core out the center of a cabbage, and put a can of corned beef into the center, and smoke it fer St. Paddy's day.
