Equipment

  • Mesquite Wood chips

Ingredients

  • 4 Artichokes

  • 1/2

    Cup

    Extra virgin olive oil

  • 1

    Lemon's juice

  • 4

    Minced garlic cloves

  • Sea salt

  • Cracked black pepper

Instructions

  • First, you'll have to steam your artichokes.

  • Put a large pot on the stove and use a metal colander or steaming basket inside.

  • Boil just enough water so it reaches the bottom of the basket.



  • At the same time, clean the artichokes and trim them down by getting rid of some of the tougher leaves.

  • With a serrated knife, cut off the uppermost quarter of each artichoke.

  • Then, slice the stem so they can all sit flat on the cutting board.

  • Clip off the pointy bits with cooking sheers.

  • Using the serrated knife, halve the artichokes and toss out the hairy center with a spoon.

  • Put each half-choke, stern side down, into the basket, reducing the heat down to a rolling simmer.

  • Put the lid on top and give the chokes about 20 minutes to become tender.

  • When the artichokes are done steaming, let them cool off the burner so you can prepare them to smoke.

  • While they're cooling, set the smoker to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Put the steamed artichokes in packets of aluminum foil.

  • Not only will they help hold the produce as they cook, but they double as little serving bowls too.

  • Make a mixture of the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and lemon juice, and then brush it all over the vegetables.

  • Let them smoke for an hour.
