I decided to try making smoked hummus and it turned out great!

    I love hummus. Make it all the time, but I wanted to try something different, so I smoked the chickpeas first! I used the weber since I'm able to smoke at a much lower temperature in there than in my Masterbuilt propane smoker.

    So I started with 2 cans of chick peas, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper and put it in a tray in the kettle grill. I got some soshito peppers from the asian market today I wanted to try, so I smoked those and put them in the hummus as well.

    I let that go between 130-150 for about 90 minutes

    Here's how it looked at the halfway point

    Once I pulled them, I put them in the processor and let it go for a minute or so to get the beans smooth, then I added tahini paste, salt, pepper, cumin, lemon, and the rest of the juice from the can. I made sure it was a little thin since the peas were warm from the smoker. It'll thicken up in the fridge. Overall I'm really happy with how it turned out and will definitely try again. There's a clear smokey taste but far from overwhelming!

    Great idea! I've always just thrown the ingredients in the blender, but I like your use of the Kettle. Going to try this next time I make flatbread.
