  4. Roasted veggies are awesome. I should eat more of them but my plate is often brown. Get one of those grill pans with the holes in it and cook for your sweetie!

    Tofu is NOT awesome. Ha Ha

    Oh there's no sugar coating it....Mikey is in trouble.     Mikey the vegan...  [​IMG] hmmmm there is a good ring to that!
  10. Just think of your pit as an oven and cook anything she'd normally cook in the oven on the pit. If more heat is required use the grill.
  11. use to think the same for years, never liked it. got married though.

    ain't tried smoking tofu, but wife is Philipino, she immigrated here about 7.5 years ago. I've taken a liking to it in recent years. Wife can knock my socks off with it.  Give it a try this way, cast iron skillet, BACON GREASE and fry it till nice golden brown. Pretty darn good. 

    now that you mention it, I'll have to go smoke some before i fry it next time. 
  12. I wouldn't know which end of a tofu to feed and which end to wipe. LOL

    As far as main dishes go, I think you're SOL, but there's a Brazilian steakhouse in Dallas that smokes whole pineapples (obviously with the skin removed) & coats them in cinnamon. Delicious.

    The problem with that is a vegan would kill you if you used bacon grease.

    Hi Mikey,

    Embarrassed to admit that I am a former (and reformed) vegan and vegetarian. So, there is hope for your girlfriend! :biggrin:

    Anyway, here are a few ideas for things that have vegan recipe versions and can be smoked. I would attach links but it is not permitted, but I found vegan recipes for all of these using Google, and all have ways in which a super creative cook like yourself can incorporate smoking.

    Vegan Macaroni and Cheese
    Baked Beans
    Red Beans and Rice
    Vegetable Tacos or Burritos with Smoked Salsa
    Tortilla Soup made with Smoked Vegetables (i.e. Onions, Tomatoes, Tomatillos, Peppers, Corn)
    BBQ Tempeh (Tempeh is a fermented soy bean cake that is actually really good. You can put a rub on it, steam for 20 minutes or so, and then throw it on your smoker)

    Hope this helps!

    Hey FWIsmoker

    That turkey looks absolutly disgusting.  I tried tofu ONCE.  The only place it shows up is if I go out for Chineese food and order hot and sour soup--I eat around the tofu and it is left in the bottom of the bowl. Animal activists have to realise that there is a place for ALL of God's creatures--right next to the potatos and gravy!!

    Hey nmaust

    Do they coat them in cinnamon before ore after they smoke them?  Any idea how long and how hot they smoke them?  It sounds really good
