    I took 6 "pink lady" apples and cored them leaving the bottom in tact. I dropped a caramel candy in each and then filled each with a mixture of sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Next I put a slice of butter in the top of each one, followed by 2 more caramel candies stuffed in. Placed in the MES at 270 for approximately an hour, smoked with apple wood and apple juice in the water pan. Pulled them off when they were oozing yummyness out the top and split and served with a big scoop of Breyers Vanilla Bean ice cream. Enjoy! I sure did.


    Money Shot!!! Look at that dripping, sticky, ooey, gooey goodness.

    Thanks for looking. It was actually an experiment since I couldn't find too many recipes on here to copy. Next time I'm wrapping in dough. Was that one your recipe?

    That looks freakin' Awesome!!!!  [​IMG]

    At 270˚ for one hour, do they get soft like apples in an apple pie, or would I have to go longer?

    That's the way I like them.

    Thank god I saw this post at work and not at home, if my wife saw that money shot over my shoulder I would be sent to the store for ingredients post haste! LOL
  11. Oh yeah! That is an awesome idea. That's one of the most delicious things I have ever seen. I just want to reach through the screen and get me some.  [​IMG]   A little Grand Marnier and it could be Smoked Apples Foster. Easily an $8 dessert in any fine uptown restaurante. [​IMG]

    They get pretty soft but not quite apple pie soft.

    The dough idea sounds like a good one.  Maybe sugar coated.  Let us know when you try It.  If I beat you I'll do the same.

  15. Maybe like something flaky like phillo dough or some kind of pastry type dough. Ooooh it could be Apples Wellington. [​IMG]

    Brought these over to a friend's party yesterday and put them in HIS smoker (felt a little strange opening another man's smoker -- kind of like making a pass at his wife!! [​IMG]).  I did ask permission, but it still felt strange....

    He had BBR's on with hickory, which I thought would be a bit harsh for the apples.  Turned out great though -- ice cream and all.  [​IMG]

    Thanks for a great idea!  Everyone loved them!

    Thanks so much. Being a newbie here I'm flattered that someone tried something I posted and even more flattered that it was a hit. I'm going to do some more soon but probably try peeling the skin first.

    Thanks again.
