Smoked Peach Cobbler: A Heavenly Blend of Sweet and Smoky

By Sophia Martinez

Hello, dear readers! Sophia here. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know my love for smoking meats knows no bounds. But did you know that my smoker isn’t just reserved for ribs and brisket? Today, I’m sharing a delectable dessert that combines the sweetness of summer peaches with the rich, smoky flavors I adore: the Smoked Peach Cobbler.

The Inspiration Behind the Recipe

Years ago, on a balmy summer evening, I was smoking some ribs for a family BBQ. As the delicious aroma wafted through the air, I stared at a basket of ripe peaches on my kitchen counter. A crazy idea popped into my head: “Why not smoke the peaches?” I took a leap of faith, and the result was truly magical. I knew I had to share this unique treat with the world.


  • 6-8 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Optional: A scoop of vanilla ice cream for serving


1. Prepare the Smoker: If you’re a beginner, fret not. Preparing your smoker is much simpler than it seems. I personally love using applewood chips for this recipe, as they impart a mild, fruity smokiness that complements the peaches beautifully. Preheat your smoker to 225°F (107°C).

2. Peach Perfection: In a large mixing bowl, combine your sliced peaches, 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Let them mingle for about 10 minutes. This not only flavors the peaches but draws out some of their juices, creating a sumptuous syrup.

3. Smoke Those Peaches! Place the peach mixture in a smoker-safe dish and smoke for 15 minutes. This step infuses the peaches with that irresistible smoky flavor. As they smoke, you’ll notice their colors deepening and their aromas intensifying.

4. Cobbler Time: While the peaches are smoking, whisk together flour, the remaining sugar, baking powder, and salt in another bowl. Stir in the milk and melted butter to form a smooth batter.

5. Assemble and Bake: Once the peaches are smoked to perfection, pour the batter over them. Don’t stir! Increase the smoker’s temperature to 350°F (177°C) and continue smoking until the topping is golden brown and the peaches are bubbly, about 40 minutes.

6. Serve and Savor: Serve your Smoked Peach Cobbler warm, preferably with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. As you take that first bite, the harmonious blend of sweet, tart, and smoky will dance on your palate.

Sophia’s Tips:

  • For Beginners: Don’t be intimidated by the smoking process. Just remember to maintain a consistent temperature and be patient. The results are worth it!
  • Variations: Feel free to add a handful of fresh berries or a sprinkle of chopped nuts to the peach mixture for added texture and flavor.
  • Pairing Suggestions: A glass of chilled rosé or sparkling water with a lemon wedge complements this dessert beautifully.
