    Fresh romas from Momma's garden

    Drowning in olive oil, splashed with balsamic vinegar, and sprinkled with thyme

    In the smoker for about 4.5 hours at 230F  They come out so tasty you'll swear they should be called candy.  I'll save the oil for other cooking which now tastes all smoky and tomatoey.

    The drained oil was great on a salad I had tonight with dinner.

    Always looking for ways to use tomatoes, any variety.  This will definitely go on the to-do-list.  Beautiful use.

    Great idea!

    I smoke dry Romas with a little garlic, sea salt, and basil regularly, but I have never thought to smother them in olive oil

    OMG! Those look absolutely amazing! I can just see these as part of a Caprese Salad cold with Mozarella and Basil leaf and a little more Olive oil and balsamic vinegar! I'm thinking of these as appetizers for our next party!

    Ok so I did this today and they came out absolutely amazing. I did use Basil instead of thyme.  Chilled the tomatoes after they came out of the smoker and then served them with fresh mozarella and fresh basil leaf. Drizzled with really fresh olive oil and Balsamic vinegar. All I can say is that this is an amazing taste sensation that I will repeat over and over again! Thanks AustinL for this great recipe!
