My smoked mushroom recipe is a family favorite!
I find that mushrooms are a fantastic and often overlooked ingredient.They are bursting with natural, somewhat earthy flavour and have an amazing texture.
Use your favorite flavored wood, or wood chips for these bad boys, you will not regret it. My favorite wood so smoke these with is hickory.
These go great through simple pasta with some fresh herbs, and a white wine sauce, or as a filling in a beef burger.
Smoked Mushrooms Recipe
This is a very simple recipe to give a new depth of flavour to your mushrooms. This recipe does not include many ingredients, and to be honest I don't think that any more are needed. The Wood chips give these mushrooms an amazing natural depth of flavour.
- Crushed chili flakes to taste
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- 1 sprig fresh oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 12 ounces of your favorite mushrooms stems trimmed, wiped clean, and sliced
Preheat your smoker to a medium-high heat, following your smokers instructions.
In a bowl mix together the chili flakes, rosemary, oregano and salt & pepper.
In a separate bowl mix together your selection of mushrooms and olive oil.
Combine your spice mix with your olive oil mushrooms.
Place your mushrooms in an aluminum tray and smoke for 30 minutes.
Turn your smoker up to 450°F. Smoke for a further 15 minutes. You can smoke for less time if you would prefer the mushrooms to be a little moister.
You can use any mushrooms for this recipe, you can never go wrong with good old button or Portobello. However, I like to use a combination of mushrooms such as oyster, porchini, shitake, chanterelle, and Enoki.

One of my favorite ways is to roughly chop them and add into a smoked beef burger.

You might think that lighting the smoker for just some mushrooms might be a waste of time, however that is why I use my Weber & one of the best bluetooth meat thermometers , it allows me to throw in the mushrooms and confidently leave it to do it things!
