  • 4-5 Vidalia onions halved (you'll need 4 cups of smoked onion in the end)
  • 4 cups mayonnaise
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt plus more for seasoning


  • Place onion halves on a smoker and smoke at 225 F for 1-2 hours or until the desired smokiness is achieved (Just cut a piece off and try it. It's delicious!)
  • Let onions cool then chop roughly and place into a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
  • In a large bowl combine the pureed onions and the remaining ingredients, adding more salt if desired.
