Smoked Tomato Sauce


  • 4 large, ripe Tomatoes (Heirloom Tomatoes are good for this recipe)
  • 3 cloves of Garlic, halved
  • ¼ White Onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper



  1. Quarter tomatoes and place on an aluminium tray.
  2. Set up Smoker and smoke tomatoes for 1.5 hours at 200°F (93°C) with Hickory Bisquettes.
  3. Heat olive oil on low-medium heat in a medium sized saucepan.
  4. Add garlic and onion and sauté until translucent.
  5. Add smoked tomatoes to the saucepan and simmer on low heat for 1 hour or until sufficiently reduce, stir on a regular basis to keep sauce from sticking to the base of the pan.
  6. Add balsamic vinegar and salt & pepper to taste.
  7. If you prefer a smoother sauce puree the sauce in a blender or with a hand blender to desired texture.
