What’s HE smokin’?!

Some time ago, as I was familiarizing myself with my new Weber Smoky Mountain, a friend suggested to me that I try smoking something rather unusual.

Deli pizza? Say what?

Friends, let me tell you something. This is an excellent way to make something as common as a $5 pizza, which you can pick up at places like Aldi. One of my favorite quick smokes, it only takes sixty to ninety minutes. And, I might add, this is actually a favorite of my guests, at least when we don’t have the time to do something like a brisket, which we’ll discuss later.

Crank up your smoker to around 225 – 250 degrees. Drop ’em on. Walk away. Check on it in an hour to seventy five minutes. But don’t be concerned about it looking a bit dark.

What does quick, cheap deliciousness look like?


As much as I like pizza with “stuff” on it, I have a confession to make. I like the pepperoni better. Enjoy the crispy crust and taste the hickory and charcoal smoke permeating through the pepperoni and mozzarella. Tonight, I chased it with a draft pale ale. Deliciousness, on a budget. Thank you, to that imaginary friend who turned me on to this simple treat.
