Why You’ll Love This Peach Cobbler Recipe

  • It has a nice smoky flavor that adds so much depth and deliciousness. It really is the best smoked dessert.
  • Made with fresh, ripe peaches that DO NOT have to be peeled. Peeling peaches is such a pain and I find it completely unnecessary for this recipe.
  • Tastes great no matter the type of smoker you have. I use a Pit Boss vertical smoker but Traeger, Masterbuilt, or Big Green Egg smoker/ pellet grills work as well.
  • It has a crispy, crunchy cookie like topping that is NEVER soggy!

Serving Smoked Peach Cobbler

I love eating this peach cobbler as is because it is a star on it’s own. But, I can say it also tastes great with a vanilla ice cream and caramel drizzled over the top. You can also top it with honey, whipped cream, maple syrup, etc. You really can’t go wrong.

Best Woods for Smoking a Peach Cobbler

For this recipe I used a mixture of Apple and Competition Blend pellets by Pit Boss. I recommend delicate flavored pellets for desserts: cherry, maple, apple, pecan, or a combination. Pellets like mesquite or hickory tend to be overpowering for smoking desserts like this one. And don’t be concerned, a distinct smoke flavor builds in this Peach Cobbler.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What if I do not have a smoker?

No worries, just bake it in the oven (350° F for 35 minutes, the same as if you were smoking it).

Can I try this recipe with different fruits?

Yes! This recipe works great with plums, different types of berries, and even apples. Keep in mind the baking time may vary depending on how soft or hard the fruit is.

My smoker has a water pan in it, should I fill it?

No, don’t bother. There is enough moisture from the peaches that this does not dry out. In fact, having the water pan filled will keep your cobbler topping too moist and from crisping up.

Can you make peach cobbler from frozen peaches or canned peaches?

I prefer fresh peaches because it tastes the best but you could use canned peaches. Be sure to strain the peaches from the syrup before using them. I do not recommend frozen peaches because they have a high water content (even when thawed). You don’t want your Smoked Peach Cobbler to be watery.
