Ingredients for Smoked Cream Cheese Block

Start those wood chips for a super simple recipe with just one main ingredient. Get creative with your seasonings and start smoking!

  • Cream Cheese – Use full-fat cream cheese because… Well, it’s just better. More flavor and great texture for smoking. You could substitute low-fat if needed.

How to Make this Smoked Cream Cheese Recipe

The best way to achieve rich smokey cream cheese is to smoke it low and slow. If your smoker has a super smoke setting, use that.

Prepare your smoker by setting it to the lowest setting it can reach, ideally 200-225 degrees.

Season the block of cream cheese with your seasoning of choice and score it with a knife to help the smoke reach and permeate it thoroughly.

Place the block on foil and then onto the smoker, smoking for about 2 hours.

It’s ready to serve with some cheese spreaders and serve with crackers, bagels, charcuterie, or salmon.

Smoked Cream Cheese Flavors

We tried this recipe with both an everything bagel seasoning and a traditional meat rub (Traeger Rub) .

We were shocked that we actually liked the taste of the meat rub smoked cream cheese more than the everything bagel smoked cream cheese.

Other cool flavors could be dill, onion, or even cinnamon sugar for a sweet twist.

This would go great on a charcuterie board!
