Gather your ingredients
Prepare your grill or smoker for 200 degrees F.
Use your favorite pellets, wood chips or chunks of your choice. We prefer hickory for savory seasonings and maple for sweet.
Press cream cheese into seasoning blend of your choice. Try to cover all sides as best you can. Place cream cheese brick inside your foil pan.
Place the pan with cream cheese into the smoker, close the lid and smoke for 2 hours.
The top splits at around 90 minutes and I like to leave it on for another 20 to 30 minutes to enhance flavor. Any longer and cream cheese dries out too much.
Remove from smoker.
Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before eating.
Serve savory with crackers, rounds of bread, pita chips, or even corn chips and sweet seasonings with vanilla wafers and graham crackers!
