    Smoked Romaine

    This was something I tried on a whim, and it's become a regular feature of my grilling/smoking, especially when we have company:

    Smoked Romaine Lettuce

    Ingredients:

    1 head of Romaine (serves 2-4 people as part of a chopped salad)

    Directions:
    1. Cut the lettuce head in half length-wise, making sure to keep the central rib intact. Don't trim the bottom of the stalk. If you disconnect one of the long outer leaves, just keep it and lay it on top of the head when smoking
    2. Wash and drain the lettuce gently but thoroughly
    3. Heat your smoker to a low temperature. I use 180* F on my Smokin' Bros. pellet grill, but have done this as high as *225 when smoking other things at the same time
    4. Place the the lettuce directly on the grates, cut side down. Let smoke for 45 minutes
    5. Remove to a tray and let cool (or serve still warm for a warm salad). Trim bottom of stalk if it's woody before cutting up for a salad or serving as a wedge. Some of the leaf tips may be overly crisp and can be removed if desired, but the main body of the lettuce should still be crunchy.
    I like this in a chopped salad with a Southern-style buttermilk dressing. It pairs well with strong flavors including feta cheese. I haven't tried it with either blue cheese or bacon, but I imagine it would work very well with either or both. The world is your oyster.

                This sounds fun....I love grilled romaine. Halve or quarter the romaine (depending on size), keeping root end together. oil and grill cut side down over hot charcoal until browned. While hot brush with Caesar dressing of choice. When I have black garlic, I make a Caesar with that...looks very cool. then top with parmesan toasted breadcrumbs (instead of croutons)

                Always gets rave reviews, you have the hot/cold lettuce and all the flavors of Caesar touched by the grill

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
