Notes

The brie will start spilling cheese out the sides once it comes out of the smoker. If you don’t want to serve it on the cedar planks, immediately use a big spatula to safely, and quickly, move it to whatever serving tray you prefer. 
I used mesquite pellets, but you can use pretty much any flavor pellet you prefer. 
If you decide against the cedar planks, I would suggest using something with a solid bottom and not just setting the brie on the grate of the smoker. You’ll be cleaning up a mess otherwise. 
If you have trouble finding a chunky cranberry sauce, I sometimes use 1 cup cranberries, ¼ cup sugar, and ¼ cup water in a saucepan. Simmer it down on medium heat for about 10 minutes, smash around the cranberries, remove from heat for 5 minutes to thicken, and voila. 
Do not use the whole cranberry sauce at the store, it was more like the jellied version and wasn’t the best consistency for this dish. 
You can use another oil if desired.
