    Vegetarian ideas?

    My daughter went off to college and decided to follow a vegetarian diet. She'll be back home for Thanksgiving week and the semester break next month, so I'm looking for some ideas for vegetarian-friendly pellet cooker recipes.

    My name is Joel and I am soon to be a pellet smoker.

    Just wanted to say howdy. I learned to BBQ from a friend about 15 years ago, using a Brinkmann All-in-One water smoker for about eight years. Got tired of the massive fuel consumption, poor insulation, cleaning out the ashes several times during a butt or brisket cook, etc. Stepped up to a...
