Did you ever think about smoking garlic? It is wonderful and can be used in chili, soups and stews but my favorite way to use this is in a roast either beef or pork that I cut slits in and then smash the cloves into. It gives it a very nice smoky flavor when you do not have time to grill or smoke a piece of meat all you have to do is add these little gems and you get the light taste you wanted! It’s very simple and doesn’t take much effort at all – enjoy!
How To Smoke Garlic
You will need:
Whole heads of garlic
Olive oil – 1 Tablespoon for each head
1 jar with a lid
Smoker – if you don’t own one and want to make it go here for a tutorial.
First you need to take the heads of garlic off like this:
Then set the head in a piece of foil and pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil and salt like this:
Crumple the foil up around the garlic so the olive oil won’t leak out.
Put on a tray and then into your smoker for about an hour.
Take them out and let them cool, put them in a jar like this and drizzle the olive oil on top,
put the lid on tight and keep in the fridge for up to a month!
