Forgot about this until I ran across the pix tonight. I got this idea from a guy at 2013's eggtoberfest in Stone Mountain, GA. His stuffed pumpkin was so good that I had to try it for myself.
You start with a rice, sausage and veggie mixture:
Then add it to a bowling ball sized pumpkin that has been cleaned of it's "guts." Along with cubes of cheese.
Then put the lid back on, grill it indirect and let it go until the pumpkin's flesh hits 200 f internal temp. You can use a cake pan to help prop it up.
Serve it up with the filling and the flesh of the pumpkin. The sour cream is nice, depending on how spice up your filling.
Can't wait to make another one up this Fall. Never would have thought to eat pumpkin like this, nor would I have thought I'd actually like it. But the pumpkin actually tastes very similar to yellow squash...just a little sweeter.
Here is the gentleman's recipe for those of you interested (You can adjust the seasonings if you don't have some of those on hand...that's what I did):
