Hickory Smoked Lasagna on the Pro

This was a meal I prepared in advance and then smoked while company was here over Labor Day weekend. It really came in handy and it was sooooo tasty. :)

Just two pans of lasagna. When browning the meat for the lasagna I like to add sliced up "little smokies." They add so much flavor to the dish whether I'm cooking this in the oven or outside.

Into the Memphis Pro with hickory..

I let the lasagna take on some smoke at 225 for about 25 minutes before raising the heat to 325. Then just let it bake til bubbly and heated through...

It was soooo tasty.. but I'm a lasagna fan anyway. :)

It really saved me a lot of time by having the lasagna made in advance. I was able to relax and kick some hind end on the pool table. :)

I believe you've fallen in love with your Pro - I'm about to be in the market to replace my gasser and will have to give this baby serious consideration.

Man I couldn't be around you for long or I'd pack on 30#, but it would be delicious doing it.

Sorry were going to end your at home winning streak this afternoon :)

It sure looks good! Do they sell dry ice near where you live? I'm just wondering about some possible care packages from Oklahoma?

Mmmm...lasagna, one of my favorites. I cook it more often now that I learned that I don't have to boil the noodles! Regular lasagna noodles, just soak in very hot water for 20 minutes before assembling the dish for baking. Works perfectly and there is no need to purchase the more expensive "no boil" noodles.

Not a lasagna fan, I know, my wife gives me a hard time about it all the time. But, I will say this, it does look extremely edible. I tell ya, you can sure make a person hungry and swear they can taste the food with just a simple picture or two.

I believe if there was a way to smoke your smoke you would find it!

I have ten lbs of goose jerky going in my smoker today about noon.

Also have a slab of smoked salmon freshly caught out of Lake Michigan
sitting in my fridge.

Have you ever tried smoking a loaf of homemade bread? Putting dough into your memphis? Other than your bierocks? I'm talkin a whole loaf.

Smoked lasagna sounds wonderful, J. I just fire roast mine, hadn't thought of giving them a touch of smoke first. Nice idea.

Larry I think I HAVE fallen in love with it! It's so convenient to use. The Hearthland company have several models to choose from. Let me know if you get one!

Thanks Larry.. :)

lol Thanks Capt. Ron!
Sorry, looks like Oklahoma beat Florida yesterday. :)

cowgirl said...

Haha..Thanks Ron! No dry ice around here.. I'd send you a care package if I could though.

cowgirl said...

Anonymous, thank you for the tip! I use the regular boil noodles.. I'll try just soaking them next time.

cowgirl said...

Hey David! How are things up north? Hope you give smoked lasagna a try sometime.. maybe you would like it better than regular.
Hope summer is treating you well. :)

cowgirl said...

Ross, you are so sweet! Thank you! Wish I could cook like you and Jackie.. talk about talented people!!
Thanks Ross.. :)

cowgirl said...

Marc, Thank you! I love the new Memphis Pro cooker.. It's spoiling me.
I do enjoy outdoor cooking. :)

cowgirl said...

Bushman goose jerky sounds great so does the salmon! Bet that will be tasty. :)
I bake bread in my drum and have baked jalapeno cornbread in the Pro. but haven't gotten around to baking regular bread in it.
I need to do that soon. :)


cowgirl said...

Thank you Chris! Fire roasted sounds excellent! I bet you get a bit of smokey flavor from the wood.
That would be sooo tasty!
Thanks Chris... :)

This one looks wonderfull Jeanie! I never would have thought of smoking lasagna but I'll bet the smoke flavor really adds something. But if I were you I wouldn't get too proud of kickin booty on that crooked pool table of yours. You kinda have the home field advantage there! lol


cowgirl said...

lol Dave! We leveled the table over Memorial weekend this year and nobody could make a shot! lol
Hope you give smoked lasagna a try.. it's pretty good stuff.
Thanks Dave! :)

I have a wedding coming up this summer, and want to make 10 lasagnas, I was wondering if I could bake them in my smoker, so many at one time. Or should I just keep them warm in the smoker, thanks wondered if anyone has tried it.
