Smoked Apples

Back in early May we smoked a turkey breast for dinner & Matt decided he was going to try smoking apples for dessert. It ended up being a tasty quick dessert for a barbecue so I thought I'd share it with you for this long summer kick-off weekend.
Smoked Apples
The flavor & texture were a lot liked a baked apple but there wasn't much smoky flavor. I think once we have a real smoker we'll try this again to see if that increases. Still, it was a great dessert & perfect for a hot day when you don't want to turn on the dinner.

Smoked Apples
(These directions are for a gas grill. I'm sure you could get a similar result with a charcoal grill or smoker.)

2 apples, cored
butter
cinnamon

Put a few dabs of butter & some cinnamon in the hole of each apple left by coring.

Heat half of your grill & place a smoker box with wet wood chips over the flame. You want the grill to be at low heat, about 300 F. Once the wood chips have started to smoke place the apple in the grill on the side with no flame, indirect heat. Close the cover & let smoke for about 30 minutes or until soft.

Serves 2 - 3

An excellent idea. I haven't been able to smoke much this year yet. We have been getting rain every weekend. But, when I do get to smoking a butt, I'll be sure to throw some apples on there.

I like this.
