How to Smoke Cheese on A Pit Boss

Pre-heat the pellet grill to medium heat, around 200-250°F for 5-10 minutes, and get the smoke rolling. You can use a propane smoker or any smoker that uses wood chips.

Place the cream cheese block in the tray, score the cream cheese, and brush with olive oil, coating the entire surface.

Coat the tray with the chosen toppings and place it on the smoker rack. Close the grill cover to maintain the smoker cooker’s temperature.

Smoke the cream cheese for 2 hours or until the surface is golden.

What Type of Cheese Can I Use?

This smoked cheese recipe is for cream cheese, but a huge variety of types of cheese can be smoked. I smoked the following types of cheeses with delicious results: brie, mozzarella, parmesan, Swiss, gouda, and cheddar cheese.

How Long Do You Smoke Cream Cheese

You will want to smoke your cream cheese at 200°F for 2 hours or until it is golden in color.

Which Wood Pellets Work With Cream Cheese?

When starting, it’s much better to choose the delicate flavor of mild wood pellets such as fruit wood, maple and pecan. That way, you’ll have a lovely smoky flavor without overpowering the cheese flavors.

If you prefer stronger smoke flavors, try the bacon-type flavor of hickory and mesquite wood chips.

How to Store Leftover Smoked Cheese Cream

If there are any leftovers, it’s best to place them in an airtight container. Once refrigerated, it can last up to four days. Cream cheese isn’t suitable for freezing, so make it in small batches to consume.
