If you want to add some interest to your side dish, consider hitting some green beans with it with a little hickory smoke. It’s amazing how some hickory, pecan or cherry wood boosts the flavours of most vegetables and starches, and with the Char-Broil® Digital Electric Smoker, smoking a side dish is so easy.
With the low heat involved in smoking, it’s generally best to stick with a side that has been cooked prior, such as macaroni and cheese or au gratin potatoes. Just about 20 minutes in the smoker will lend an amazing flavour. When dealing with a fresh vegetable, pick one that has a water content – green beans, corn and summer squashes. Add some chicken stock and toss them in the smoker.
