Tasty Smoked Vegetables

A Great Meal Deserves a Great Side Dish

When I first purchased my smoker, all I focused on cooking was meat. My wife would always ask, “what should we eat with that brisket?” or “what she would we eat with these burgers?” The healthiest answer is almost always smoked vegetables.

Smoked vegetables are easy to make, and can usually be cooked right alongside whatever the main course is for the day. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tossed chopped vegetables in some butter, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and then thrown them in a foil pack to cook next to some steaks.

Grilled and Smoked Vegetables Are Delicious!

Grilled vegetables really are delicious. I love how simple they are to make, and the added bonus of some Traeger smoked flavor make smoked vegetables one of my absolute favorite bbq side dishes.

If you’re cooking a pork shoulder or brisket, chances are it will be done and resting long before it’s time to cook the veggies. If that’s the case, consider using this method.

How to Make Smoked Vegetables

You can use a lot of different types of vegetables here. I like to chop up some carrots and broccoli. Throw in some snow peas and mushrooms for good measure.

Toss the veggies in some olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spread the seasoned vegetables out on there.

Set up your smoker to smoke at 180 degrees. Place your baking sheet loaded with veggies in the smoker and let them smoke for 5 minutes. It doesn’t take long for the veggies to soak up some of that smoky flavor. Crank up the heat of your smoker to 400 degrees and continue to let the veggies cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.

A Great Side Dish – Smoked Vegetables

The vegetables I used in this recipe can be adjusted to your taste. Consider this a baseline for what's possible, and expand on it!
Vegetables cooked this way tend to be a little crisper than some people like. You can cook the vegetables in a foil pack with butter instead if you like your veggies to be a little less firm.
