Smoke Roasted Garlic

Ever go to an Asian market and find insanely cheap and giant packages of garlic bulbs?  As much of a garlic fiend as I am, even I can't seem to figure out how to use that much before it goes bad... which is why, I like to roast up whole bulbs of garlic!

Next time you're barbecuing and you have some extra space on your smoker, why not smoke roast some garlic?  It's pretty freakin easy.

Bulbs of garlic
Olive oil

1. Chop off tips of garlic bulbs, taking of just a bit of the top of the cloves themselves.  Leave the papery garlic skin on!
2. Drizzle the top with a bit of olive oil, trying to get it to soak in a little.
3. Sprinkle the top with salt.
4. Put bulbs of garlic on the smoker with all your meats and whatnot.  Smoke for about 2 hours (maybe more if you're going really low temp) or until soft and glorious.  Mix into sauces, chilis, or spread on toast if soft enough.
