Serves 4 | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 tablespoons hickory or mesquite wood chips, soaked
8 plum tomatoes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Prepare stovetop smoker with soaked wood chips according to manufacturers’ instructions.

Cut the cored from the tomatoes with a paring knife then cut the tomatoes in half through the core end. Squeeze out the seeds and juice. Line the tomato halves side by side and cut side up on the smoking rack.

Season the cut side of the tomatoes with a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper.

Smoke until the tomatoes are softened, but not mushy; 10 minutes over the heat after closing the smoker lid and about 20 minutes off the heat with the smoker lid closed. Check the tomatoes for doneness after they've been standing off the heat for 10 minutes.

Serve smoked tomatoes as a side dish with just about any grilled or roasted meat, or seafood dish.
