These Smoked Vegetables are seasoned up and slow cooked to perfection on the Traeger. They prep in just minutes, then set it and forget it, and let the smoker do the work! Plus, these smoked veggies only take 45 minutes in the smoker. 


  • 2 zucchini, stems removed, quartered and cut into large chunks
  • 2 squash, stems removed, quartered and cut into large chunks
  • 1 small red onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeds and stems removed, cut into chunks
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Preheat the smoker to 350 degrees. Prepare a foil tray with vegetables.
  2. Pour in olive oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Toss with a spoon or your hands to combine.
  3. Place the vegetable tray in the center of the smoker and close the lid. Cook for 20 minutes. Open the lid and stir the vegetables. Close the lid and cook for another 15 to 25 minutes until the squash is cooked, but not mushy.
  4. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy.


Work quickly when opening the lid of the smoker. The temperature will drop quickly.

Cook until the vegetables are softened, but the zucchini and squash is still holding together. I like to cut the zucchini and squash into large chunks so they don't overcook.
