Course Side Dish
Cuisine American


  • 8 Oz. Cream Cheese
  • 2-3 Tbsp Your Favorite BBQ Rub
  • 1/4 Cup Your Favorite Jam or Jelly I like to use a hot pepper jelly like peach jalapeno. But anything works. You can also use your favorite BBQ Sauce or glaze.
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Juice Use this only if you are using a jam or jelly. Don't use if you are using a BBQ sauce or glaze.


  • Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F
  • Open the cream cheese and place it on a double layer sheet of cream cheese.
  • Season each side of the cream cheese block with the BBQ Rub. If you want you can score the cream cheese first before you season it. You can use whatever pattern you want. Just make sure you use a good sharp knife, and only lightly score it. If you cut too deep, it will fall apart while it is cooking.
  • Place the cream cheese that is still on double layer of foil on the smoker grate. Let it smoke for 2-3 hours.
  • While the cream cheese is smoking, mix your jam or jelly with the apple juice to create a glaze-like mixture.
  • About 10-15 mins before you pull the cream cheese off the smoker, glaze it with your jam or sauce mixture. Let is smoke for 10-15 more minutes so the sauce can slightly tack up and adhere to the cream cheese.
  • Enjoy with crackers. Wheat thins or pita crackers are best for this. Club crackers work too.

Smoked Cream Cheese

This is seriously one of the most simple side dishes in the world. It works as the perfect dip for any party, get-together, or frankly, any day of the week. Why not?

One of the great things about this recipe, is that it requires very little preparation. You simply open a block of cream cheese, season it up, and throw it on the smoker. You don’t need to add a sauce or glaze on top, but I’ve found that it adds the perfect balance of flavors and textures. Crunch from the crackers, sweetness from the sauce, creaminess from the cream cheese and savor from the bbq rub.

I hope you can enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Have fun with this one!
