Easiest Smoked Cream Cheese



Smoked Cream Cheese is perfectly seasoned, and smoked over low heat with a touch of applewood. It’s the perfect addition to any hors d’oeuvre tray, or it can be used as a dip for chips or fresh vegetables.


– 8 ounces cream cheese – 1 tbsp olive oil – ⅛ tsp chili powder – ⅛ tsp paprika – ⅛ tsp onion powder – ⅛ tsp granulated garlic


Preheat the smoker (electric pellet grill) to 180 degrees. While the smoker is preheating, place the cream cheese on a small tray and prepare by slicing the top of it in a cross-hatch pattern.


Drizzle the oil over the top and then gently brush it in, so it soaks into all the slices you just made.


Combine the chili powder, paprika, onion powder, and granulated garlic in a small bowl and stir to mix. Sprinkle on top of the cream cheese.


Place the cream cheese in the preheated smoker and let it smoke for about 2 hours.


Let sit 10-15 minutes before serving.
