Real late to the party on this one and interested to hear what you did.  A couple items that popped into my head were the Portobello mushrooms that SusieQ mentioned and vegan meatloaf or burger patties that meat eaters even seem to like.

Portabella mushrooms on the grill, which I have done many times before. I'm not a vegetarian, but I love these myself, and make them pretty often. Marinate large caps in balsamic vinegar, garlic, chopped rosemary, olive oil. salt and pepper. Grill, and serve on a toasted bun with melted cheese (I like swiss, mozz or jack), slabs of roasted red pepper, romaine lettuce or arugula, mayo. Sorry, no clever ideas for smoking...yet.

Not vegan with the cheese and mayo. Vegans have to fend for themselves. I love my dairy and eggs. Funny thing is, my friends who were vegetarian 20 years ago are now all eating meat. Not a lot of meat, but there is not an aversion to it. I'm fine with vegetarians. I can respect that. It's the gluten-free people that make me crazy. We'll see how long that fad lasts. I've already seen many people I know who swore by it saying they were "gluten sensitive" now eating bread and pasta like there's no tomorrow. Guess they weren't as sensitive as they thought. ;D Everything in moderation as Julia used to say.

As a carboholic, I have a much harder time feeding gluten free guests than vegetarians.

Lol, I hear ya', Kari!  Yeah, there's a difference between veggies and vegans, for sure!  I agree about the whole gluten-free fad, too!  Can't even make great pizza crust without high-gluten flour!
