One of my goals for 2009 was to try to make more desserts on the grill, so on New Years Day I made my first attempt. I was going to be smoking baked potatoes and I figured I’d take a stab at this recipe. I wasn’t sure how this recipe from Steven Raichlen’s Primal Grill TV show would turn out. You see he made it on grill at higher temps than you’d use on my smoker and it took 60-90 minutes. Another recipe I had for apples on a smoker called for 1 hour at 225, so I had NO IDEA how long to do this for. The apples are cored almost but not quite completely through with a melon baller. Then whipped cream cheese, apricot jam, brown sugar and finally butter are added. These all melt together and into the apple while they cook. I guessed 2 hours for a time and it turned out this time was perfect. Speaking of perfect, it doesn’t get much better that this. The apples were a wonderful mix of flavors. The best part is they are easy to put together and are something you can throw on while you are smoking something else. There is always room for a few apples.
