And thank you for that great link - there are some great sounding recipes there. Can't believe after all these years in CA I've never been to Castroville.
Maybe next time your up my way you might like to go the Artichoke festival.
It's one huge event here.Just as much as the Gilroy Garlic Festival.


Tyler would love going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Leave your Spider Man fishing pole home.. LOL!

Anyways, the Artichokes turned out great. I always thought it was the law to only steam them. That's how hubby has asked them to be made.

What I did was clean and prep them well. Cut them in half.
They were starting to turn a Little brown while I was getting other things ready. So I rubbed fresh lemon on them, placed them face down on a platter. I got the smoker ready lined the pan with foil and added some water, modified a different rack than the one that came with this smoker. It had more open space for the smoke to get to them.

Brushed them with olive oil. sprinkled on kosher salt, fresh pepper. Then steamed until they were just about 15 minutes from being fully cooked.

I used Pecan instead of apple wood chips. Spooned it all around the pan.
15 minutes of that it was done.

Removed them to a preheated CI pan and grilled away.

Hubby fell in love with them. He'd never had smoked, grilled chokes before. Now he says that's the only way to have them.

They weren't at all over smoked.2 Tablespoons is just enough to give it the right amount.

He had his with some additional fresh squeezed lemon juice and was just in heaven. He ate my Bruchetta to !!!!

That wasn't in the plan btw.

Next time my photographer will be home to take pics. He just happened to walk in as Dad was finishing his.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

Yep, I sure would love to head up your way someday Munky, and not only go to both festivals, but the Aquarium too. I'll be sure to tell Tyler to leave his Spiderman pole at home. LOL

Your dinner sounds wonderful. I'm so glad you and hubby were happy with it! Thanks so much for sharing your techniques and review. I am so going to have to try that, even if I have to sprinkle soaked wood chips right on the coals. I've never met an artichoke recipe I didn't like.

Grandchildren fill the space in your heart you never knew was empty.
