This is a new one for me. I've never tried it. I read a recipe that cut both ends off, cleaned out the seeds and pulp and stuffed a stick of butter into the cavity, followed with filling the rest of the cavity with brown sugar.

That seemed kind of lame to me, as I *think* the butter will pretty much just melt from the squash cavity into the smoker. This one seems better, as the ends aren't cut off and halving the squash makes 2 bowls that will better hold the butter and brown sugar:

I'll probably cook it on my WSM at lower temps and slower/longer... I'll probably wrap it in some AL foil after it's smoked for a while, to help meld the ingredients and flavors together and make it more tender.

Any suggestions or other recipes would be very welcomed - I have 3 Acorn Squash to work with. I don't want to do them all the same way and would be interested in types of wood or wood chips to use, cooking times, temps and other ingredients.
