Smoked Brie with Honey and Chorizo

Smoked Brie

The perfect smoked brie appetizer that can be made on your charcoal grill or gas grill. Pair this decadent fancy cheese with spicy chorizo sausage and a sweet drizzle of honey for a beautiful way to impress your guests.

I’m not sure there is anything better than delicious, melted, smoked cheese. While I love this smoked queso with chorizo, this smoked burrata, and even this smoked cream cheese with pepper jelly, I find this smoked brie recipe to be on par for holiday season.

While there is a recipe for this below, it’s honestly so simple (and made of only three ingredients) that it is really more of a tutorial than a tried and true recipe. I do love how its a nice change up from the traditional baked brie though!

Ingredients:

  • Brie Cheese Wheel: Find any brie wheel at your local store. Most brie cheese comes coated in a protective rind (this will be scored and can be eaten).
  • Cooked Mexican Chorizo: I love crispy, browned cooked chorizo sausage. It has such incredible spices and flavor to it. You can sub for other sausage (breakfast ground sausage or a spicy Italian too).
  • Honey: Use any honey syrup for this recipe.
  • Toasted Bread and Crackers

How to smoke your brie on the grill:

  • Prepping your brie- Start by scoring your brie lightly over the top with a paring knife in a crosshatch pattern. You can leave the rind on and then place your brie into the cast iron pan that fits your cheese best.
  • Place the brie on indirect heat at 250 F. on your grill and close the lid and smoke to cook and melt your cheese. Let it cook for about 20 minutes. Use wood chips lighter in flavor for this recipe.

  • Prep your chorizo- While your brie starts smoking and heating through on your grill, prep your chorizo sausage. Let it cook in a frying pan until cooked through, crispy and brown.
  • Drain your chorizo onto a plate with paper towels to remove the excess grease from the chorizo (do not skip this step) and then add one cup of the cooked mixture over the brie and cook for another 10 minutes.

  • After the cheese cooks for a total of 30 minutes, remove it from the smoker. Serve it with a nice drizzle of honey and pair it with toasted bread rounds, pita chips, or your favorite crackers and enjoy!
