    Figured I would share a quick tutorial on Roasting/Smoking Garlic

    I'll keep it simple with lots of pictures

    Today I smoke/roasted some garlic in olive oil with a wee bit of salt and froze, vacuum sealed and placed in the freezer till I was ready to use them.

    Tops cut off to expose garlic.

    Olive Oil.

    Sea Salt.

    On the GOSM BB with cherry wood. Make sure to Smoke around 200 - 225, especially if smoking in the pan.

    After 2.5 hours.

    Ready to be cleaned.


    Removing Garlic


    Garlic ready for packing.


    Garlic Laid out on cookie sheet and ready for firming in the freezer.


    Fresh out of the freezer and ready to be vacuum sealed.


    Vacuum sealed and into the freezer.

    Garlic does not keep well, I suggest the freezing unless it will be used within a week.

    Nice tutorial!

    Hmm... I wonder how well dehydrateing some of these would work to make smoked garlic powder...
  8. I am confused. I thought Freezing Garlic caused it to lose its flavor.

    No need to be confused and yes it will loose some of its potency as will under refrigeration.

    I probably wouldn't use oil if dehydrating them, maybe just dry them in a smoker followed by a dehydrator.
  11. I did not know that garlic loses flavor if refrigerated or froze. Note to self: keep

    the garlic out of the fridge and use it pronto, thanks SQWIB...James

    Keeps the oil in better, however you need to keep temps low because the pan will get hot and cook the garlic where it touches the sides, you can see in my pics a few cloves got cooked a little bit.

    Sqwib.... That looks so good... Bride does the same for saving over the winter... Um Um GOOD STUFF.....
    Sierra, afternoon...... I have dehydrated lots of garlic.... Here is a thread to it.... I would dehydrate and then cold smoke it at 110*F ... then vac pack and freeze and grind just prior to use... Dave

    SQWIB, morning... Bride peels the cloves and runs thru the fine slicing blade on the food processor. Places the cloves on parchment in the dehydrator at 110 for 2-3 days.
