Cream cheese and cranberries

Greetings everyone,
Nothing I make this Thanksgiving is grill or smoker related but I wanted to do something fun. So in the midst of prepping other dishes for tomorrow, I tossed a block of cream cheese on the PitBoss. Covered it with pumpkin pie spice and smoked it with oak pellets for a few hours. Then I added some cranberry sauce on top and let it go for another 20min or so. The cranberry sauce was made with some bourbon too, recipe from Cooking with Ry. This was almost perfection. Everything worked so well and I'll be doing this stuff more.

Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome, I just got done making three batches of cranberry sauce. One has tipple sec and orange peel in it . The next has Grand Marinae* in it. The third has blackberry Brandy and fresh blackberries in it. I'm a cranberry sauce freak, I eat like Jell-O, I love the stuff.

Those all sound great, especially the one with orange peel!

Nice treat there. We use dried cranberries in oatmeal cookies in place of raisins.

That really looks good, but I do not like cranberries.
Although my wife Judy loves them, I guess I will have to do 2 blocks.
I think blueberries or cherries would work for me!
Thanks for the idea!

Oh man I bet some kind of cherry would be awesome on this. Maybe a cherry compote!

I've not tried the smoked cream cheese yet, but I've used the little wheels of brie with all kinds of toppings.... including cranberries.
