Move the Jerusalem artichokes to the smoking basket. Slice and add the onion. Add the cloves of garlic. Start smoking at level 3 until smoke begins to properly form. Then drop the power to level 2 and smoke the vegetables for about 30 minutes.
Boil the pasta in salted water until done. Strain carefully and add the smoked vegetables, Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley and pine kernels. Finally, add a little lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
