Ingredients

    • 4 whole heads garlic, unpeeled with only the loose papery outer skin removed
    • 4 teaspoons olive oil (not extra-virgin) or vegetable oil
    • 3 tablespoons applewood chips

Instructions

Prepare your smoker:
Place the wood chips in a small pile in the center of the smoker base. Place the drip tray on top of the wood chips inside the smoker base. Place the wire rack on top of the drip tray.

Coat each garlic head with a teaspoon of oil and place on smoker rack. Cook over medium heat until the skins are well browned and the cloves feel soft, about 45 minutes. To test, the garlic should be soft to the touch. Remove one clove (carefully it will be hot) and press at the base of the clove and the garlic should squeeze right out of the skin and be the consistency of a smooth paste. Remove the garlic and set aside to cool.
