Hickory Smoked Texas Caviar " Roasted Garlic"


Fresh rosemary
steak seasoning


Not having any big bulbs for the grill I thought I would try to build a birds nest with foil line it with rosemary and fill it with garlic like eggs.
I sprayed a little olive oil on it and a shot of steak seasoning then put it on a “cool spot” on the grill. I smoked it while I had a roast going at around 300 for about an hour. Give it a shot of my Worcestershire sauce spray every now and then to keep thing moist.
Preparing Grill: Low Indirect Heat
Preheat your grill to low heat (250-300). Turn off one side so you will be cooking with indirect heat. Add your wet hickory chips over the fire and oil the grill. A cooking spray is easiest for this.
Note: you can add your hickory directly to the grill or you can use foil smoke packets. (Two handfuls wet chips and one dry, fold foil into a packet, poke holes in it with a fork and you’re good to go.)
Note: I use a spray bottle when cooking on the grill filled with a Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke mix that keeps things moist and adds tons of flavors. (Mix is 3 parts Worcestershire with 1 part liquid smoke)
Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to your taste. Take it and run with it….

I love roasted garlic, add a little rosemary and things just get better.
The trouble I have is in finding garlic big enough for the grill.
The only time I see the big stuff is on TV.
Because I cook a lot with garlic I buy it by the gallon jar already peeled..

This stuff is great!
I make this all the time ...
