You’ve probably seen the fancy, expensive infused olive oils… well, friends, today I am making my own Smoked Garlic Olive Oil at half the cost with twice the flavor!
This is great if you are already smoking something at the same temperature.
Just pop the dish with olive oil and garlic on the smoker at the same time as a whole chicken or pulled pork.
Use the olive oil for yourself in recipes, or if you bottle in cute containers they would make a great gift.
How to make Smoked Garlic Olive Oil
This recipe calls for A LOT of peeled garlic cloves, 40 to be exact.
So instead of spending my time peeling 40 cloves, I bought the bag of already peeled garlic at the store.
First put the garlic cloves in a dish that is safe for the smoker or pellet grill.
Then add a few sprigs of fresh thyme.
And pour three cups of olive oil over top.
Set the smoker or pellet grill between 200 and 225 degrees.
Place the dish with the oil and garlic on the grate for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Some of the smaller cloves were on the harder, darker side while the larger cloves remained soft.
Just remove when the garlic is cooked how you like.
That smoked garlicy goodness goes through every bit of that olive oil creating an amazing flavor.
Strain the garlic and thyme from the Smoked Garlic Olive Oil
Store the olive oil in a covered container in the fridge for up to three months.
You can use it in recipes or as a bread dip.
Also you can use the smoked garlic cloves blended with butter, serve with bread, or freeze them to use in recipes.
