  • 1.5 oz lemon juice freshly squeezed

to make smoked apples

  • Wash and dry apples. Peel, core, and slice them into 1/8 segments.
  • Prepare the smoker. Place 1 tbsp apple wood chips in the center of the bottom of the smoker. Using wide aluminum foil, wrap the drip tray and place it on top of the chips. Place the smoking rack inside the tray and arrange apple slices on it.
  • Close the lid and place smoker over high heat making sure the burner is right under the pile of wood chips. Our goal is to bring wood chips to smoldering as quickly as possible. In 5 minutes, you will smell the first puff of smoking hickory. Turn the heat to medium and continue for 10 more minutes.
  • Turn off the heat after 15 minutes since the moment your smoker was placed over the heat. Keep the apple slices smoking without heat for the next 5 minutes, lid closed.
