    Anyone tried it? Seems like it would really pick up a nice smoke...
     
  2. I have added it along with other veggies before & it has come out good.


    Hard to see but there is some eggplant in this medley.

    Give it a whirl  [​IMG]

    Haven't tried it yet but it sounds like a really good idea!  Maybe smoke it then bread and fry for eggplant parmesan!

    Should come out great, just keep  an eye on it so it doesn't get to mushy on you. I like to grill it over hot coals with a few chunks of wood thrown in for a nice smokey flavor.

    Its a great way to eat eggplant I think extra smoke will be great.

    Hi All - I'm new to this forum, but just got my first smoker and would love that Baba Ganoush recipe. Do you think I should smoke it until mushy, char it & then smoke, or smoke it & cover it to roast it (as to not take on too much smoke flavor)?!

    Make it all the time, Israeli style, “ hatzalim”. Very simple. Build a fire, let it burn down to coals, puncture the eggplant(s), and toss in the fire. Turn occasionally to get even char. Then toss in colander and slash eggplants to let juices drip out. When cool enough to handle, peel and chop. Add garlic, cumin, chili, and a touch of mayo. Mix well, serve with pita.
     
  10. You can smoke just about anything, I bake bread in the smoker with just the lump charcoal and it's dangerously good.
