A lot would really depend on how big your spaghetti squash is and how effective your grill or smoker is. You may want to check and adjust the temperature settings of your equipment to get the right range. You know that your squash is ready when you can easily separate the strands with a fork.
As mentioned earlier, you can serve with marina sauce, fresh herbs, Parmesan cheese or Alfredo sauce as toppings. Grilled chicken with a spaghetti squash could give you a heavenly combination.
You can use one or two fork(s) to separate the strands of the spaghetti squash much in the same way you shred meat. Keep shredding until you reach the skin.
You may choose to serve the squash in the skins or transfer it to a bowl before adding your preferred toppings.
