  • 1 large butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Prepare your smoker for 275 degrees. Add your choice of wood to the fire
  • Cut the stem off of the squash and slice down the center, lengthwise. Leave seeds intact. Score the flesh with a sharp knife (optional). Brush with olive oil and season with salt. Place into the smoker for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Squash should be fork-tender when done. Let squash sit for about 30 minutes before handling. Remove seeds and discard. Scoop out the flesh, chop, and use as needed.
  • Please note: If you do not want an overly smoky butternut squash, remove it from your smoker after 40 minutes, and finish it up in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes, or until tender.
