Smoked Stuffed Apples

Smoked Stuffed Apples

(Three Little Pigs Style)


  • 6 firm sweet apples, such as Honey Crisps or Galas
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of Three Little Pigs Touch of Cherry Rub
  • ¼ cup shortbread or gingersnap crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 marshmallows (optional)
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)


  1. Core the apples using an apple corer or melon baller. Don’t cut all the way to the bottom. The idea is to create a cavity for stuffing.
  2. We had to end up pulling the core out then cut 1/3 off the core end and placed it back into the bottom of the apple to hold the stuffing.
  3. Cream the butter and brown sugar together and Three Little Pigs Touch of Cherry . Beat in the cookie crumbs, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the apples. Stick a cinnamon stick upright through the filling of each apple and place a marshmallow on top.
  5. Cut sides down so marshmallow can seep inside.
  6. Place apples in an aluminum pan or on foil.
  7. Smoke apples until the sides are squeezably soft but not collapsing.  250 degrees for 1-1 ½ hours depending on size of apples.
  8. If the marshmallows start to brown too much, tent the apples with foil.
  9. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
