    Hadn't fired up the smoker in a while and while we were at the Flea Market we spotted this great Florida Sweet Onion at Aprils. One of the students at CHS is her son and he said they were really good, so we gave it a go.

    Popped a beef bullion cube in the cored out center and added some minced garlic and melted butter. Then wrapped it in aluminum foil leaving the top vented.
    The longer you can smoke this the better as it will start to caramelize. I was figuring around 4 hours or so for this one.

    Prepped the beef ribs with MDM rib rub. You can Google this one up.

    Wanted to go with a modified 3-2-1 and used 2.5-1.5-.5
    Wood choice was Turkey Oak and Cherry.

    At the 2 1/2 hour mark I wrapped them in foil, then back in the smoker. Boy, that Oak wood really adds color to the meat.

    After the half hour out of the foil, I popped them in the pan and took them in the house.

    LOL, this one looks burnt, but it was quite tender. Some sweet corn, fresh garden tomato, some ABT's and the Sweet Onion was excellent. It was a good smoke.

    That looks great. Too early in the am for me to be looking at this stuff. Can't wait for some of the Iowa sweet corn to start coming around. But it's still a few months away.

    That onion idea looks great. That would be tasty with beef for sure. How did the bulion cube turn out? Did it break all the way down?

    Hey, that's some great chow. Really missing fresh vegs here, still too early to put in except for the radishes.

    Your plate was beautiful, I though I could almost smell it from here. Thanks for the post, it really helped.

    I have to give you points on the onion. I have tried them done that way in the oven but will throw a few in the next time I fire up the smoker.
