Smoked garlic is a variation of roasted garlic. To make it you can use a gas or charcoal (or wood) grill that will close with a vent for airflow.
Smoking food opens a whole new flavor dimension. Plus, who doesn’t love the smell of a bonfire? It takes you back to summer nights roasting marshmallows over the fire and homemade BBQ. The smell of wood burning brings back those memories and also cooks up delicious food.
I’m guessing you may have had smoked pork or chicken, but have you ever had smoked garlic? If not, grab yourself some heads of garlic, because you’re going to want to dive into this culinary experience and bring back those nostalgic memories.
Smoked garlic is a great way to add flavor to sandwich spreads, soups or just enjoy by itself. Its mellow, smokey flavor is a great way to add savory, buttery garlic flavor to any dish!

Grill the garlic:
Enjoy the warm garlic cloves on top of a fresh slice of crusty bread. It’ll spread easily with how soft it becomes with cooking.
Add the garlic to marinades, soups or sandwich spreads. You’ll be able to use more garlic than when it’s fresh since the flavor is much more mellow.
Change up the smokey flavor! Try swapping the hickory smoke chips for applewood smoke chips or another flavor for a fun variation to the garlic flavor.
