Looking for a unique recipe for tailgating or an appetizer Smoked Cream Cheese on a Pit Boss Pellet Grill is amazing! With football season here I have been looking for new ideas to make food on my Pit Boss for tailgating and this did not disappoint.

Now while I do love a complicated recipe sometimes sweet and simple is nice, especially for tailgating. This is easy to pair up with crackers, or you can spice it up and put it in another dip recipe as well!

Smoked Cream Cheese Ingredients:

Tin Foil

Cream Cheese


You can use any seasoning that you would like. This can also be made to put into dips or soups needing cream cheese! The smoke flavor will carry over into any dish you add the smoked cream cheese into. 

How to smoke cream cheese on a pellet grill:

Get your smoker rolling smoke, and then turn it up to 200 degrees. 

Make a “plate” with tin foil to place the cream cheese on. Now you can put this on a plate or in a dish but know the smoke may end up getting stained from the smoke itself.

Get your smoker rolling smoke.

Place your cream cheese on the smoker, keep an eye on your pellets to avoid an air pocket forming in the fire pot. You don’t need to do anything else to the cream cheese while it is smoking.

Smoke your cream cheese for 2 Hours at 200 Degrees in your pellet grill.

Now I smoked this alongside some fresh caught salmon but it's perfect to throw on the smoker next to long smoking meats so have as a snack or appetizer before the big dish is done smoking!

Get your smoker rolling smoke.
Make a "plate" with tin foil to place the cream cheese on. If you had a small plate you could use that, I did tin foil so I would have fewer dishes to clean up.
Once your smoker is rolling smoke place your tinfoil and cream cheese on the smoker.
Now with anything smoking food-related, it is important to know how your smoker smokes and to remember it isn't a time thing.
I cooked my cream cheese for 2 Hours at 200 Degrees.
