  1. 15 ripe Plum Tomatoes, halved
  2. 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  3. 2 Tablespoons Pork Barrel BBQ All-American Spice Rub
  4. 2 Tablespoons Butter
  5. 2 cups Red Onion, chopped
  6. 4 cloves Garlic, minced
  7. 2 Tablespoons Fresh Thyme, chopped
  8. 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  9. 4 cups Chicken Stock
  10. ¼ cup Heavy Cream
  11. ¼ cup Basil, finely chopped
  12. Salt & Pepper
  1. Slice tomatoes in half and brush with half the olive oil and season with half of the Pork Barrel BBQ All-American Spice Rub. Grill tomatoes over a charcoal fire with hickory chips for 7 minutes.
  2. In a medium Dutch oven, heat the remaining olive oil and butter over a medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, thyme and season with the remaining Pork Barrel BBQ All-American Spice Rub. Sauté until the onions and garlic are softened and becoming translucent, about 8 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and stir for 2 minutes. Deglaze the pan with 2 cups of chicken stock and stir for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour the onion and garlic mixture into a food processor and add the smoked tomatoes and process until smooth. Pour the mixture back into the Dutch oven and add the remaining 2 cups of chicken stock and bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Stir the cream into the soup and add salt and pepper to taste. Divide the soup into bowls and sprinkle with basil.
