Smoking vegetables on the grill is a great way to bring out their natural sweetness while infusing them with a seductive smokey flavour. Any vegetable will work well. But if combining, be sure to combine those with similar textures for even cooking. Root vegetables such as turnips, carrots and beets work well together. Winning summer vegetable combinations include squash, zucchini, red onion and peppers.
The Char-Broil® Grill Infusion Cooker is a great tool for this recipe, if on hand. If not, a disposable aluminium half pan works well with a foil packet filled with wood chips. Because vegetables are delicate, mild woods such as cherry, apple, or pecan provide a gentle kiss of smoke without overwhelming their flavour.
