Okay, maybe I'm having a moment and just need to be talked down, but couldn't one use a sous vide bag on a smoker to cook vegetables without drying them out? A trick would be finding a cool spot in the smoker, yes? Or have I just gone mad? It could be called "pseus vide".

How about smoked/pseus vide potatoes? Start them on the smoker to soak up a bit of flavor, pop them in the bag, seal with a bit of liquid, then pop into the cool smoker spot?

No need to use expensive sous vide bags when cheap tin foil is available and will not melt or explode from steam build up.

No need to use expensive plastic bags when cheap tin foil is availible and will not melt or explode from steam build up.
Good point. I still make the Boy Scout 'hobo potatoes' with onion, garlic, and peppers.

Okay, but I'm not a fan of how aluminum leaches into things when heat and acid are applied. The plastic would let me add marinade to the vegetables with less chance of reaction.
