Interesting about not retaining smokey taste after cooking smoked garlic. I've been wondering what I was doing wrong.

Have you tried a couple or three (no more than five) seconds in the microwave to peel them?

The easiest way to maintain the "smoke" is to apply some liquid smoke, or some smoked salt

I am a big fan of liquid smoke.

Bashing the little round garlics worked fine.

Didn't they used to sell something like this in Lidl, at one time? I'd forgotten about it...

I really ought to plant my garlic. It's been so wet lately, though, and I have been busy with flowering bulbs and foxgloves.

Smoked garlic is very over-rated - smells lovely but tastes of nothing, give me fresh every time!

Another fan of liquid smoke here - hickory or mesquite.

And then there's my stove top smoker..............

A friend who farms and smokes garlic says his favourite use is to keep a smoked bulb of garlic in a jar of rice ... he says the rice absorbs the smokey flavour ... I tried it for a paella and it was great ... must get some more smoked garlic.
