ISO help/tips smoking garlic

Can anyone advise me on the simplest way to smoke bulbs of Garlic please. I don't have a smoker which may give you all a bit of a challenge but if it is somehow possible it would be good because the flavor is so intense I just love it.
Thanks Guys

I can't imagine how to do this without some kind of tool to use. Here are a couple of inexpensive options.

Stovetop Smoker - The Original Camerons Stainless Steel Smoker with Wood Chips - Works over any heat source, indoor or outdoor : Amazon.com : Kitchen & Dining

Amazon.com: Brinkmann 810-5301-C Smoke-N-Grill Charcoal Smoker and Grill: Patio, Lawn & Garden

Do you have a grill? We have a cast-iron smoker box that we put wood chips in. It works pretty well: Amazon.com: GrillPro 00150 Cast Iron Smoker Box: Kitchen & Dining

Yes, That's a good idea thank you GG. However, I have discovered in the last 20mins or so that a friend of a friend has a smoker that they would be willing to lend me so there you go.........it's a funny ol' life isn't it?

We've had no issues with just wrapping some soaked wood chips in foil and putting them on a burner in the gas grill. Works great.

If you like roasted garlic, cut the bulbs in half, 1/4 cup olive oil and mix in liquid smoke to taste, drizzle the oil over garlic, then roast the garlic in the oven.
