I enjoyed the Baked Apples cooked at the Carolina Eggfest last weekend - So I tried to create the recipe tonight.
After climbing 1740 feet in 5.5 miles at Beech Mountain, NC this morning on my mountain bike, I thought we would enjoy a treat tonight.
Cooked at 400 degrees indirect on the LBGE in a Dutch Oven for an hour - WOW, yum yum what a treat it was.
Many thanks to the cook who provided the wonderful Baked Apples a the eggfest in Winston-Salem, NC last weekend.



  • Looks great! Congrats on your climb. I bet it was beautiful up there.
  • Thanks, yes it was a beautiful day.

    2 tbs ground cinnamon
    2 tbs whole cloves
    1 tbs nutmeg
    2 1/4 cups packed brown sugar

    mr toad

    cook/smoke in a 7qt. dutch oven - 1 and 1/2 hours - add nuts during last 15 minutes of the cook - and rum, light, and serve

    Cooking Tips - - variations: pecans instead of walnuts or both - add other fruit, pears or cherries for example - chardonnay or apple brandy instead of rum - chopped ginger is a nice addition - dark (grade b) maple syrup instead of the brown sugar - all is according to taste
