Smoked Creamed Spinach Stuffed Tomatoes


Smoked Creamed Spinach Stuffed Tomatoes, I wanted to do some smoked/grilled tomatoes with dinner and I asked Patti what she thought. This is what she came up with. Man, I do love the way she thinks, these were really good, with her homemade creamed spinach picking up the mesquite wood smoke flavor and the warm soft tomatoes… oh my. Lots of different textures and flavors complimenting each other. We also talked about making these as a main dish soon using shrimp or leftover meat added to the spinach.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on one of our Grills or Smokers, but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

A Wood Pellet Grill Recipe

 Cooking Directions: Memphis Wood Fire Pellet Grill/Smoker

To prepare the grill for cooking, check your pellet supply – top off or change flavors as needed. Scrape grill grates off, scrape flavorizer off and sweep any ash out of the burn pot. Check the grease pans and change them if needed. Set ITC to 350 degrees and give the grill about 10 minutes to reach temperature.

I like to add a little smoke flavor to everything so I turn the ITC down to 225 degrees (105c) after a good fire is established.

Place tomatoes on a small grill grate and directly onto the grill

 

Place tomatoes on a small grill grate and directly onto the grill and just let it hang out in the smoke and get happy for 1 hour or so. This is referred to as “Smoking” or “Hot Smoking”.

They are done when the tomatoes are soft, about an hour…

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees, anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About Our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Monument, Green Mountain, Uuni Wood Fired Pizza Oven, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What You Love,
Ken & Patti
