    I just had the idea this minute, I am going to try it for Sunday brunch for Katie, my wife.

    She loves apple pancakes with sausage, and has been hinting for it soon.

    The apples are starting to come in, one has made me excited, ginger gold apples are great.

    I was thinking of coring them filling them with breakfast sausage and putting a big ol hunk of cheddar on top.

    I want to smoke them, over apple wood for a couple of hours, maybe glaze them with maple syrup.

    now put that with your pancakes.

    I want to hear your thougts before I start, and I will post q-view and post my Pancake recipe as well. My pancakes are awesome, they are a little bit of work to make so that is why I save them for speacial occasions and special once ina whiles too.

    thanks
    Michael

    Well, here it is.
    they sold all of the gingergold apples, so these are the first of local fuji apples.
    maple breakfast sausage, and 6 yr old wisconsin cheddar.




    I hollowed them out after I got the core out. I used a mellon scoop, but I'm sure a spoon will work. I left a 1/4 inch or so of apple left as a shell.

    I made sure there was a drain hole in the bottom, and loaded them up; about a 1/4 lb in each. then the cheddar on top.

    I smoked a 250-265 until I reached 155 internal @ 2hrs over apple. the cheddar melted then formed a cheesey crust.

    I glazed them for the last 45 minutes with maple syrup and black pepper.

    Katie likes silver dollar pancakes, and she only wanted half an apple.


    I also promised the pancake recipe.....The best pancakes i know of.[​IMG]

    Cakey Buttermilk Pancakes



    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 1/4 cups well-shaken buttermilk
    1/2 cup melted unsalted butter plus 2 tablespoons for cooking
    2 large eggs
    3 tablespoons granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder, fresher the better


    In a medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients except 2 tablespoons butter until evenly combined and moistened thoroughly (some small lumps will remain). Set mixture aside to rest while griddle heats or cover and store in the refrigerator to rest up to 12 hours before using. (If batter rests, stir briefly before using.)


    Thanks guys. There will be 2 more smokes this weekend.

    5 racks of spares: I just bought Jeff's rub recipe, I am excited to use it, so many of you fine folks swear by it.

    Thanks, I love apple season!, I will post a lot of apple recipes over the next few months!

    Thanks CG!!! I have a couple of mods for the next batch;
    sprinkle either brown or maple sugar in side the apple.
    mix cheese with the sausage.
    and start the glazing earlier.
