Smoked Berry Cobbler

 

When you’re in a bbqing mood, why stop at dinner? That was the thought behind throwing this cast iron skillet cobbler into my smoker on the 4th of July instead of in the oven, and it turned out fantastic! The smoker adds a little wood smoke flavor that pairs wonderfully with the rich berries. This recipe can, of course, be done in the oven, but it’s much better baked over real fire!

Start by filling a cast iron skillet with 6-8 cups of berries, apples, or any other fruit you’d like. I have a mix of blackberries, blueberries, and nectarines. I’d also suggest peach and blackberry as a fantastic combination. I like a higher berry to dough ratio, so I used 8 cups, but feel free to use less if you like a doughier cobbler.

Next, mix up your topping. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Gently fold the egg mixture into the dry mixture with a spatula until evenly mixed and it forms a soft dough.

Drop the dough by spoonfulls on top of the berries. They don’t have to completely cover the berries, but try not to leave any large holes.

Smoke or grill over indirect heat at 375°F for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool briefly and serve warm, preferably with vanilla ice cream.
