    Anybody got a quick and dirty for garlic on the smoker?

    I usually do mine in the oven, but since I dont want to be peeking, approximate time / tecnique?

    Smoked garlic.
    Nothing better!
    I just cut the top off till the bulbs are exposed. Drizzle with olive oil, cracked black pepper and some kosher salt. Smoke till desired doneness.

    Here is a link for smoked garlic olive oil

    And one for a fattie. One of the best ones I have ever made and it was nothing more than chopped smoked garlic inside.

    Whenever I do garlic I keep it so I can still mince it inside, a few times I have gone to the texture of roasted (squeeze out paste texture) and they are great in sauce and rubs. 45-60mins for the soft smoked and 2-2 1/2 for roasted/smoked I think.
    Haven't smoked any in a while, so it's about time I do again.

    garlic is becoming a regular item on my smoker, for making salad dressings, rubbing on corn, etc.

    I do pretty much the same as when I cook it in the oven, trim the top off, drizzle with olive oil, and then place on foil, smoke until tender enough to be able to squeeze the cloves out.

    I mix mine with cream cheese for the filling for my ABT's, & my wife uses the leftover for bagels.
