    Smoked cream cheese

    Anyone do the smoked cream cheese block? I’ve heard of it, but don’t know details for how long, temp, etc. How does it taste?

    Oh yeah. I did 2 for Thanksgiving. I did them at 225 on. my Grilla Silverbac for a couple of hours. I followed this recipe:


    However I used different rubs. I did one block with Grilla AP rub and the other one with a a Rib Rub I found in my cupboard.

    I did them in 12 aluminum pan and then filled them with pita chips after pulling them and served it as an app. Excellent.

        I never read AR after dinner.

      I do them at 200 for 2 hours, just seems easier to remember that way. Cutting the cross hatch pattern in the top might deepen the smoke flavor, but if not still makes for an interesting presentation. You'll field several "why didn't it melt into a blob" questions.


        I did 4 blocks with different rubs/spices on my Grid Iron pellet smoker at 225 for 2 hours all in an aluminum 1/2 pan.
        They all needed more time in the smoke and more rub - be liberal with it. Good luck trying to stay away from it.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
