Double Smoked Artichoke Dip

Move over, Smoked Cream Cheese, there’s another contender for the summer’s best dip! Our Double-Smoked Artichoke Dip takes the smoked cream cheese we made and combines it with chopped artichoke hearts, seasonings, cheese, and sour cream before hitting the pellet grill for the second dose of live wood fire.

Smoked Artichoke Dip

We are on a roll this week. I’ve been seeing smoked cream cheese done in some really creative ways in the Facebook pellet grilling groups, and after buying cream cheese for weeks and not being able to pull the trigger, the stars finally aligned, the birds sang, and we made artichoke dip that’s going to have your neighbors talking until NEXT grilling season.

There’s nothing all that hard or fancy about artichoke dip. Sure, there are lots of variations, but the basics are the same. Artichokes, garlic, cheese, and some saucy binders.

In our double-smoked version, that saucy binder includes a whole brick of slow-smoked cream cheese.

How to make Pellet Grill Artichoke Dip

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.


Preheat the grill & smoke the cream cheese

180° is ideal! Brush the cream cheese with olive oil and sprinkle over the Roasted Garlic rub. Smoke for 2 hours.


Mix it all together

All the rest of the dip ingredients besides the parmesan, plus the smoked cream cheese. Put it in a grill-safe container. Top with parmesan cheese.


Smoke it

Turn the temp up to 275° and grill it until it is hot and bubbly, all the way through to the center. If you want to super smoke it, run it at 220° for 2 hours.


Serve hot

With crackers, bread, pita, chips, and/or vegetables.

Double-Smoked Artichoke Dip FAQ

What’s the best way to store leftovers?

If there are leftovers, store them covered in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.

Can you eat the leftovers cold?

You sure can! This dip is great hot OR cold.

What’s the best way to reheat leftover dip?

Honestly, as much as I rally against the microwave sometimes (see every post with fish in it), it is the perfect way to reheat hot artichoke dip. Stick it in for a minute or two, or however long your particular microwave takes to get it hot and bubbly. Stir halfway through.
If you don’t have a microwave, the oven or right back on the smoker works for reheating as well.

Serve with this homemade pita bread from Homegrown Happiness!
