Has anyone here smoked or grilled a head of cabbage? Ideas would be much appreciated.

I smoked a head of cabbage awhile ago.  I cut the core out and filled it with cooked, chopped bacon, melted butter and diced onion. Using foil, I made a ring for the cabbage to sit in and not roll around. Smoked at 225-250. I don't recall how long it took.

Dude, Iím liking the sound of that.

Iíve grilled it a couple times in thick slices and it all falls apart.

Maybe I could hold it all together with bacon

Not making it today but this is how i usually do it. Stuffed with sautťed  onion with  either cooked bacon or ham. Smoked at 275F for 3-4 hours. Brush it with duck fat every 45 minutes or an hour.

The cabbage sits on top so it will not tip or roll around.

Never tried the smoked/grilled method on cabbage. My wife makes one of the best cabbages on the stove top... that's hers.
Multiple kettles and WSM's. I am not a collector, just a gatherer... and a sick bastard.

I think if you "Smoke" cabbage it'll get wilty and probly degrade a little to quick to be good food...but on the other hand if you "Cold Smoke" it for ~1 hour then let it ferment for a couple months it might turn into kraut laced with majic. Im not sure how the smoke would effect the ferment process.

What I have done just a few times is to 1/4 the head (with the core intact to help keep it all together) and slather it with a infusion/concoction of EVOO, S&P, minced garlic & onion, brushed into the cut faces. Then grilled H'n'F ,direct ,face up so the infusion runs in and not out.





If they find a way to put any more liquid in meat charcoal grilling will be an underwater sport.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to make it, but thanks for the ideas. Hopefully it'll happen soon.
