I smoked for a vegetarian

Post by Tim Q » Sun Sep 06, 2009 2:51 am

I had some friends over for a lunch BBQ last week and one of them is a vegetarian. When I put my baby backs on my 22.5 WSM I also put in a foil lined tray with sliced firm tofu. I used a mixture of oak & cherry wood.

I left the tofu in the smoker for 1 1/2 hours. Then refridgerated until the ribs were almost ready. When it was time, I heated a little oil in a frying pan on my gas bbq and fried and added a little fresh garlic and shallots at the end. The tofu was then plated with a squirt of my rib bbq sauce, grilled eggplant, zucchini, red peppers & potato salad.

I was really surprised how well this dish turned out and would cook it again.

My ribs were much better though!

ABout 3 weeks ago I actually grilled some extra firm tofu. I first marinated it in BBQ sauce and on the grill it went. Got some nice char marks on there too. My vegetarian sister in law said it was good. i tasted it and was surprised at how flavorful it was... I still can't get past the texture though.
