Hi all,
This recipe was posted on the FoodWine Discussion list by Joe Wells from the University of Arkansas. He gave his permission for me to post it on this Forum. I have not yet tried this recipe, but it sounds like a winner! [p]Joe says he has an NB Bandera smoker. On my recommendation, he said he'd check this Forum, as his hobby is smoking and Q-ing.[p]Here's Joe's post:

I made this for dinner last night and was quite pleased with the
results. It came out with a nice smoky flavor and the filling was
great. The changes I made, just can't resist, I added bacon and
doubled the garlic and oregano and chopped up a jalapeno and put in

    Big Daddy,
    I haven't tried them yet. I believe I'll raise the grill and do them direct. Of course, now that I think of it, a bit of foil under the tomatoes would avert disaster if they leak or collapse.
    When I try them, and I intend to, I'll let you know.

    I was thinking one of those disposable aluminum trays would be prefect for the job -- a little olive oil in the bottom just to keep anything for sticking.[p]We will be trying 'em![p]Thanks for the recipe post![p]B~F

  • Gretl,[p]Great recipe! Good for a nice side dish, or an entree with linguine, or an "Anything Butt" entry. I like the changes he made to the recipe, too.[p]I will make this one - thanks for posting.[p]Lee
