Can You Cook Vegetables in a Smoker? 

Absolutely! And while I’ll be honest and admit that I’m not always about “healthy” choices, these smoked vegetables are a fantastic healthy side dish. 

Other reasons I enjoy making smoked vegetables include: 

  • It gives us variety — eventually, my kids get sick of salads and casseroles. 
  • You can smoke them right alongside your choice of favorite smoked meat. No need to make extra dishes or spend unnecessary time in the kitchen. 
  • Little prep time. Cut the veggies up, toss them in the seasonings, and you’re good to get started.

What Are the Best Vegetables to Cook in a Smoker?

The options are endless when it comes to smoking vegetables, I’ve learned through trial and error that my favorite blend of vegetables to throw in the smoker are: 

How to Make Smoked Vegetables

This recipe is one of the easiest smoker recipes I have made — so if you’re new to smoking, this is the perfect opportunity to get your feet wet! 

To get started, heat your smoker to 225°F. While your smoker is preheating, you can: 

  • Snip the ends off of your asparagus
  • Clean and halve your peppers
  • Husk and cut your corn into 3-inch sections (this helps them cook faster)
  • Cut your zucchini and squash into 2-inch chunks

Once all your ingredients have been washed and cut, transfer the vegetables into a 9×13 pan. 

Once the smoker is up to temperature, place your pan on the grates, as well as a handful of cherry wood chips — you only need a small amount if all you are smoking is the vegetables.

Allow the vegetables to cook for 5-10 minutes. 

Now, you’ll want to open your smoker, and drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and sprinkle on the salt and pepper.

Cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook until the vegetables are tender — this generally takes about 30-40 minutes, but cooking times vary. 

What to Serve With Smoked Vegetables

Aside from how simple this recipe is, I love making it on a weekend where I’m already firing up the smoker. Whether you’re making …

… almost all good smoked meats need to rest before you serve them — meaning you can throw in these vegetables while the meat rests. No extra steps, no wasted time.

How to Reheat Smoked Vegetables

Word to the wise — please do not reheat your smoked vegetables in a microwave. This will turn these delicious vegetables straight to mush, which, if you’re a new dad, might be ideal for a little one experimenting with solids, but I still don’t recommend it.

Instead, heat the smoked vegetables in an already preheated oven. This keeps them crisp and firm.

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Once preheated, add a small drizzle of olive oil to the vegetables and bake for four to five minutes until warm.
