    Inspired by posts on here, and a recipe in Joy of Cooking I came up with my own recipe of a cheesy artichoke bake. This will be finished in the smoker.

    I used:

    1 cup mayo
    8 oz cream cheese
    4 cups shredded mozz
    1/2 cup parmesan
    1/2 Lb. crab
    1 can artichoke hearts
    1 tsp Shark Sriracha
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/4 tsp kosher salt.

    Miked the room temp cream cheese, the mozz, and the parmesan together. Pulsed the artichoke hearts in the food processor, then folded into the cheese mix. Added the crab meat, salt, hot sauce, and black pepper. Put it int he cookign dish, and topped with a little more parmesan. This will be smoked later with the spaghetti, as the bb ribs I am doing get closer to being done.

    This one is a first, hoping it works,the mix tasted good, so I am feeling good. thanks for looking.

    I liked the mix before it went in the smoker, and liked it more after 2 hours. Creamy, and lots of crab, and artichoke flavor:






    Ill be doing this one again for sure.

    Resurrecting an older thread but I have to give chisoxjim some credit for the base of my Halloween Artichoke Dip I took to the party.

    Mine was a total hit:


    1 1/2 cup mayo
    6 oz cream cheese
    1/2 stick of real butter
    1 1/4 cup Parmesan
    3 cans artichoke hearts
    2 TBS of 'Real' Lemon Juice
    1 TBS course black pepper
    1 TBS kosher salt.


    IN a 10x10 corning ware dish
    35 mins in the oven at 350*

    Sorry, didn't think about taking a Qview till the pan was empty!! My bad

    last minute adder to the football watching menu for tomorrow, I am going to do another one of these smoked dips.

    Only changes: maybe leave it in the smoker a little longer, not use any crab, and leave the artichokes in a little bigger chunks.

    I love this stuff, except I do the spinach and artichoke version. So good!
    One of those things that is great out of the oven but phenomenal out of the smoker!

    just mixed up another one of these, and tossed it into the WSM.

    cut down the shredded cheese to 1 cup, and used krab instead of real crab this time.

    Ill get some pics up in a few, working on a chuckie, and some bacon wrapped chix thighs right now.

    tasted really nice before going in the WSM, should be really good in about an hour(2 hour total in the smoke).





    more to follow.
