    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

                  A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

                  Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
