Smoky Chipotle Garlic Sauce because Patti and I both love garlic (good thing) and our Smoked Garlic Sauce is pure garlic heaven! Again, I have been thinking on how I can make even better. I love the smoky flavor of chipotle, what do you think of a Smoky Chipotle Garlic Sauce? Perfect.

OFF THE HOOK!!! Our newest love, smoky sweet garlic and jam packed with chipotle chili flavor. The smoked garlic gives it a beautiful golden color and with only 5 ingredients, garlic, chipotle chili powder, salt, lemon juice, and oil. It’s super easy and a fantastic grilling sauce.

If you don’t like garlic don’t even think about this sauce, it is very garlicky to say the least. For a “Grilling Treat” I like to take about a cup of our Smoky Chipotle Garlic Sauce and mix about a tablespoon of the rub we are using in today’s cook and brush it on the meat. I like to brush it on chicken, beef, lamb, and vegetables then grill them. Patti loves to use it as a sandwich spread instead of the usual mayo. Garlic sweetens as it cooks and adds wonderful smoky chipotle garlic flavor to whatever is on the grill. Wow, its good! Not only is garlic very good for you we don’t have any Vampires around our neighborhood.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Smoked Garlic Sauce
Our Ingredients

Directions: Smoky Chipotle Garlic Sauce

Using fresh garlic cloves remove any green sprouts, which can make the sauce bitter. I used a Bull Rack sheet pan and wire rack and smoked 3 cups of garlic for 2 hours @ 150 degrees (65c). Keep in mind that you are not cooking the garlic just giving it a “Kiss of Smoke”. I used an A-MAZE-N-Tube with today’s smoke.

Place the garlic and salt in a food processor and process until the garlic is puréed. Scrape down the sides as necessary.

With the food processor running, slowly drizzle in 1/2 cup of the oil in a very slow, thin, steady stream. Drizzle in 1/2 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Add teaspoon at a time of the chipotle until you’ve blended it in. You can add as much or little as you please. Repeat this process until all of the oil and juice have been incorporated into the food processor. It’ll take about 10 minutes. If at any point the mixture separates, stop adding oil/lemon juice and continue processing until the mixture firms up again. The sauce should have a smooth mayonnaise-like consistency.

It can be stored in an air tight container for up to 4 weeks in the refrigerator. The smoky garlic and chipotle will intensify for a few days.

Note: For the sauce to emulsify properly in the food processor you have to add the oil in a SLOW DRIZZLE.

Note: If you are unable to smoke your garlic try adding a ¼ teaspoon of Liquid Smoke to the puréed garlic.

About Our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Memphis, Royall, Traeger pellet grills, Char-Griller, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What You Love,
