Ok, I got this recipe for pumpkin soup. I had the idea (of course) to smoke the pumpkin instead of baking it in the oven to prep it for the soup. I've never prepared a fresh pumpkin, so I'm not sure what to do to get it ready for the smoker. I know I have to cut it open and scrape out the seeds and pulp. What I'm not sure is how to deal with the outside. Do I need to peel it? Is the whole thing edible, or does it have a rind, like a watermelon? I've cooked alot of stuff, but the only thing I have ever made with pumpkin is a jack-o-lantern.

I use this website for several things and I trust them. You do need to make sure you have the right type of pumpkin though. Read through it and it should answer your questions. I think smoking it would be a great idea. Prepare it like you would for the oven (in chunks) but put on the smoker. I would definitely put it in an aluminum pan. Hope this helps!
