Smoked Olives

I had my smoker fired up the other day, making a nice batch of smoked pork chops. There was a little extra room on the top rack. Since I try to always use up every inch of space, I grabbed a jar of olives and a few other ingredients and in just a bit over an hour we were enjoying some garlicky, smoked olives.

Smoked Olives

Smoked olives have just a small kick to them thanks to the red pepper flakes. You don’t have to worry about them being too hot for you even if you aren’t as big a fan of spicy as we are.

For another great snack idea, try my smoked Chex Mix. Or skip the smoking and make some spicy roasted olives instead!
