Alcohol fire and baked fuji apples

I used the syringe and stopper I got from WileECoyote and lit my egg using 91% alcohol and it worked easily and before I could say WileECoyote I had a bed of coals.




I went ahead and set my plate setter in there with the foil lined drip pan on the green feet. I stabilized at 350° and got two fuji apples ready for baking.


I used my melon baller and some cinnamon and sugar and a milky way bar.



I checked them in 40 min and they were still very firm.


I checked again after 1 hour and found them at 210° and very done.



This is very good and I will have to do this more often.

    Looks great! Hope I get to build alcohol induced fires someday. :)

    It wasn't a big whoomph but, it didn't take long to get a pile of lava stabilizing your egg. I did close my dome soon after that pic. No complaints the process is quick and simple. ;) Tim

    Where is my manners sorry. :blush:

    Thank you WileECoyote aka Bob. You are very generous and kind. Tim ;)

    Thank you Hoss ;)
    I have been using alcohol start for a long time and Bob was kind enough to send me a stopper.

    Much appreciated Bob, thanks.

    Looks great, I have to give that a try.

  • Wow - you sure got your kit fast. Probably because you are not too far from me. The lady at the post office was not too thrilled to print and stick 50 postage labels on all of the kits but she got it done. Glad it arrived fast and worked well for you.

    This is a great and simple recipe! I will have to try that and surprise the wife with one of those. She loves the snickers bars so I might try those instead, and I wonder if you could use a pear or pineapple instead for variations? I am a sucker for a good bread pudding... wonder if there is a recipe on the forum for that. Off to search...

    I found that 40 min in the cook my apple was firm and 10 min later all was mush. I say keep an eye on things. This was my first apple cook and I love em. :P Tim
