    Hey folks,
    What do you all like for veggie side dishes, either smoked or not smoked? Any favorites?

    Obviously baked beans, scalloped potatos, and I have done zuccini, yellow squash, tomatoes and onions in one pan. All of the above were smoked.

    Good luck.

    Lets see here, smoked idaho taters are great, oh, and we really liked the twice baked a few days ago.

    I guess ABTs qualify as a vegetable, I'll be doing another huge batch of those to go with my Saturday Butts and Chucky smoke, they actually are a meal in themselves with the right fillings.

    Speaking of fillings, Fatties can make a full meal, too. Or the meat pie (I think I should re-post that one (lost it in the server crash).

    Ah, this is a kicker: Dutches Wicked Beans, might do a batch of them in the AM, too.

    We just got some white dust here today, too. Not much, just enough to remind us that spring is not here yet.

    May the thin blue be with you!

    My favorite side item is corn on the cob. I just throw them in the smoker with the leaves still on and let 'em go. Once they're done, you can husk 'em, add whatever you like on it and sear it for a minute or two. MMMmm... I'm hungry now!

    Veggies? what are veggies, heck i gave up on bread, buns and hushpuppies cause they also interfered with my meat consumption. Seriously i grill veggies more than i smoke them [​IMG]

    A little veggies are good....a little. Meat is better!

    Seriously tho' having a garden is great. Fresh picked Marconi Peppers- rub them with olive oil and grill em- so sweet!

    Asparagus...same. Wow.

    Spring onions (store bought, year 'round) make a nice muncher.

    Vidalia onions, peeled, quartered almost all the way through with a pat of farm butter and a tooth of peeled garlic, then wrap in foil (helps if your sister-in-law's family has a farm nearby *grin* )

    and the best of course is the jalapeno ABT's. Hands down the winner. Cream Cheese be darned, they count as a vegetable for me!!

    I like to take a cabbage and quarter it put some salt, pepper, butter and some jalepenos on it wrap it in foil and cook until it is soft. Sometimes we add some carrots and other veggies too.

    corn cob-6 green beans wrapped in bacon brn sugar-black-eyed pea's sheesh this is a endless list-grilled carrots-onions garlic-grilled taters & onions-grilled asparagas with cheese sauce-than the fresh stuff-broccle cawlflower-theres no end.
  13. Take asparagus, snap off the hard ends and using the smaller bamboo skewers, make a "raft" using two skewers through however many pieces you can fit on it. Rub with EEVO, season with a little garlic salt and any kind of pepper. Grill for about 5 min each side over high heat. You can do them on the top/warming rack of grill and they'll be fine but I like my veggies a little charred so I put 'em on the lower rack closer to the heat.
    People who were never asparagus fans (kids) have been converted once they taste this stuff. It is a bit of work to skewer them but I think it's worth it for something different.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Like the asparagus tip Whiskey, I'll have to try that. I make it on the grill now but in a pan using EVOO, pepper, and romano. Asparagus goes great with anything.
