Some of you may have seen this already but for those that haven't, this is so easy to do and the return on investment is out of this world!
Lay the cream cheese on a flat cookie sheet or shallow pan and sprinkle your favorite barbecue rub all over it. I used my own original rub on one and my Texas style rub on the other one but man the possibilities are absolutely endless!
Someone commented on the video earlier that smoked cream cheese is really good with bacon jam on top.. I started drooling at the mere though
Once the rub is applied, set up your smoker for indirect cooking at 160-180 if possible. Unlike most cold smoking, it's good to have a little heat so the cream cheese can get all warm and gooey inside by the time it's finished smoking.
Let it smoke for about 3 hours and then dig in with some of your favorite crackers or even pretzels and chips. Life is good my friends!
Note: You can do this as high as 225 if you need to but you'll probably want to reduce the time in the smoker to only 1.5 to 2 hours if you have to go that high.
