    I do a lot of smoking when I am home. One of my favorites is smoke cabbage. I always fix ribs and meat, but was looking for a way to cook veggies along with it.

    Here is how I do it.

    take a head of cabbage and hollow out a spot in the center (not where the stalk is) make it to where it will hold about a cup.

    Take a pound of sausage and cook it down to small pieces. Drain it and save the meat.

    Pour the the sausage grease in the hollow, and place in smoker.

    Some people like their cabbage soft, some like it more solid. I like mine soft, as it smokes it becomes softer, and the grease will go between the leaves. When you get it to the desire softness, place some cheese of your choice on it and let it smoke about an hour longer, take out and add sausage meat in the hollow and and in the plate.

    That sounds alright right there. Do you use a real low temp? And on average how long would you say for it to be nice and soft?

    I cook mine about 4-5 hours depending on size over about 225 heat. Just depends on the size of the cabbage.

    I like to quater the heads of cabbage, and simmer it with abunch of smoked turkey necks(or smoke meat of your choice). After the cabbage meal, I get the majority of the meat off the necks, dice any left over cabbage and cook it down into a nice soup(add what evexin I've got kickin' around). The wife will not come near me if I have a couple bowls of cabbage soup......probably a good move on her part. I'll have to experiment with your method. Think I can do the taters this way too?
