Smoked Planked Camembert with Jam and Pecans
Cook 5 to 8 minutes Makes Serves 3 to 4
- 1 Camembert or small Brie cheese (8 ounces)
- 3 tablespoons jelly or jam,
- 20 pecan halves
- Memphis Style Blend
- Cedar Plank (Specifically sold for cooking)
Set up your BBQ for indirect grilling and preheat to medium-high (400 degrees).
Place the plank directly over one of the fires and grill until singed on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Set aside and let cool. (This step is optional, but it gives you a lot more flavor.)
Place the cheese in the center of the plank. Spread the top with jam or jelly, using the back of a spoon. Sprinkle generously with Memphis Style blend Arrange the pecans on top of cheese in a decorative pattern.
Place the plank on the grill away from the heat and toss the wood chips, if using, on the coals. Cook the Camembert until the sides are soft and beginning to melt, 5 to 8 minutes.
Serve the Camembert on the plank hot off the grill. Spread it on grilled bread slices or interesting crackers.
