  • Big Green Egg or other smoker
  • Hickory or other wood for smoking


  • 1 lb Velveeta cubed
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese cubed
  • 1 Can Rotel whatever variety you prefer
  • 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 8 oz Ground Sausage precooked and crumbled
  • ¼ cup Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 2 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • ½ tsp Red Pepper Flakes more or less to your likeing
  • 2 Jalapeños sliced or diced
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper ground


  • Cut Velveeta and cream cheese into cubes,
  • Add all the ingredients, except the cheddar cheese, to a large skillet or disposable aluminum pan. I like to divide them up in the pan, but it doesn’t really matter.
  • Prepare grill or smoker for indirect heat and heat to 250°F, add wood and place skillet on grill. Smoke for 1 hour maintaining 250°F.
  • Open grill or smoker and add cheddar cheese (and sausage if you forgot to add it in the beginning like me) and stir to combine. Smoke another hour maintaining 250°F to 275°F.
  • Stir again, and taste. Adjust any seasoning and add any cheese you want to top and allow to warm up a little more in the smoker if desired.
