    2 heads of garlic - roasted (cut in half, put in tinfoil with olive oil,sea salt and fresh black pepper)
    roast in oven until garlic has turned brown...be careful not to burn

    couple of pounds of red potatoes ( i keep skin on)
    1 can chicken stock (can is ok)
    sour cream
    butter

    everybody knows how to make mashed potatoes...

    what i do is melt my butter in a different pan and add the garlic...

    when the potatoes are mashed i add them and enough sour cream and chicken stock so i get the consistancy that i desire

    mix well and enjoy

    Hey how about placing the garlic in a smoker and roasting it that way?

    Sounds good teacup!

    Hmmm smoked garlic. How long do you think that would take 20 minutes?

    if you cook the garlic too fast it burns and gets bitter dont ask me how i know this..lol[​IMG]

    the idea is to caramalize(sp) it...makes it like candied garlic...when you roast it slowly it takes the bite out of garlic that it has when it is raw

    i am not sure about smoking it but you could put in your smoker and in the tinfoil and cook it that way

    I roast garlic all the time in the oven. Nothing like it! Smoked garlic might be kewl though. Maybe smoke the paste for a few minutes?
