I bet that smoky flavor would enhance the garlic.
I am braver than you... I will address the other issues with eating alot of garlic, particularly when you eat a head of it.
Your tears smell like garlic, you blow your nose, and the tissue in the trash can smells like garlic. If you have a bladder infection... it gets antibiotic properties to it. Your kidneys do not filter out the garlic aroma... I think everyone will follow that! Not real pleasant on day two, but I just look at it as natures antiviral, antibiotic, and figure I got a good cleaning, everywhere! I have not had a bladder infection, since I started eating an occassional head of garlic.
Have you ever tried chopping raw garlic into a salad? Man it is hot, I mean like a hot pepper. I quickly understood why folks rub the bowl, immerse in oil or only used it cooked... Hot is an understatement. And yet the heat is all gone once it is cooked.
I make my version of duchess potatoes, I boil the potatoes, and nuke the garlic, then I peel the garlic, and mash it in with the potatoes, then as I am almost done with the potatoes, I add Velveeta, and turn them a golden color, and simply mix it all well, of course along with the salt, pepper, butter and milk. This is a hit at our house!
Folks, seriously, that garlic patch is like a medical insurance policy. Just look up all the properties of garlic. It was once called "Russian pennicillin, when they ran out of medicines and used it in war wounds, and it worked!" And unlike commercial medications, viruses and bacteria can not develop immunity to it. So, it is food, and medicine all at the same time.
