How to Setup the Big Green Egg (Or Kamado Joe) for Smoked Salsa

This smoked salsa is an indirect cook in which you’ll want your plate setter / conv”egg”tor in with the feet facing up. You’ll want to get your BGE dialed into about 200-225 degrees in which it will take about 1 – 2 hours to smoke the ingredients.

How to Make the Smoked Salsa

Start out by preparing the veggies.

The tomatoes can be cut in half in which you can then remove the top and bottom core. The red onion can be cut in half twice (quartered) in which you will only need a quarter of the onion.

When it comes to the jalapeno you can cut the top and bottom off then cut it in half length wise. If you like a little heat in your salsa then you are done and can leave the seeds. If not, remove the core of the jalapenos.

Place all the veggies in the BGE and smoke for 1 – 2 hours or until everything is nice and tender. This is best done if the temperature is kept anywhere from 200 – 225 degrees.

Once done, remove and get ready to prepare the actual smoked salsa. Start out by pulling off the skin of the tomatoes. Once complete all ingredients can go into the blender, which include the Tomatoes, Red Onion, Jalapeno’s, Cilantro, Minced Garlic (or fresh garlic cloves), Lime Juice and White Vinegar.

Blend to the consistency of your liking and enjoy! If you are not a fan of hot salsa then put it in the fridge for a few hours and enjoy!
