Step 1

Add the Smoking Chips to the charcoal and set your EGG for half direct and half indirect with the EGGspander convEGGtor Basket and a half convEGGtor stone at 250°F/121°C.

Step 2

Marinate the tomatoes in the Big Green Egg Moppin’ Sauce for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3

Add the Perforated Cooking Grid to the indirect side. Remove the tomatoes from the marinade and place on the perforated cooking grid. Smoke the tomatoes for about 30 minutes or to your desired doneness. While the tomatoes are smoking, coat the bread in olive oil and salt to taste, then put the bread on the direct side of the grill. Remove the bread once the outside is toasted.

Step 4

To build the bruschetta, put garlic on the toasted bread, then the mozzarella topped with the tomatoes and basil. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
