I was smoking chicken thighs with a combination of oak and hickory chunks in my smoker. Since I'm open to trying most anything I thought I would try smoking peeled whole garlic cloves along side the chicken thighs as a test to see what resulted. The result was not bad. The pungency of the garlic is toned way down much the same as roasted garlic and the cloves take on a very smoky flavor instead. I smoked about 30 cloves. They kept well in the refrigerator for several days. I used about 10 in a Dijon BBQ mix bechamel sauce which I served with steamed cauliflower and baby carrots. Last night I added about ten cloves to chicken gravy I made to go with mashed potatoes.
