It’s peach season, and what better way to celebrate that than with a smoked peach cobbler? I’ll tell you a better way to celebrate; it’s a smoked peach cobbler with smoked maple rub. I first used the new line of Watkins 1868 Organic Grilling Seasonings when I did these incredible grilled pork chops, and I couldn’t wait to try their Smoked Maple Rub. Pairing this smoky blend of goodness with some sweet peaches was a natural fit.

I’ve done desserts on the grill more times than I can remember, though I’m reminded every time I button my pants. In any case, there might not be a better grilled dessert than this smoked peach cobbler. Not only does it taste better than grandma’s peach cobbler—no kidding—it’s also incredibly easy to make. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal or for a large get together.

When I’m developing new recipes on the grill, my friends and neighbors usually eat pretty well. I pass things around for feedback and then make adjustments here and there. When I dished up this smoked peach cobbler, it was an instant hit with everyone who tried it. In fact, I’ve already been asked to make another smoked peach cobbler for an event later this summer.

Tips For Making Smoked Peach Cobbler

The Smoke: I make this on the grill, of course, like most of the things I make. But with this peach cobbler, the smokiness is really coming from the maple rub, so you can do this recipe in the oven if needed. This rub is USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project verified, and kosher certified. It’s free from dyes, high fructose corn syrup, and other artificial ingredients; in other words, it’s a very high quality ingredient like everything that comes from Watkins.

The Peaches: Use fresh peaches! Especially during peach season, which is from about mid-June to about mid-September.

The Toppings: This peach cobbler is fantastic without toppings. But if you prefer, try topping it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel.

Smoked Peach Cobbler Recipe

Serves: 8 | Prep Time: 30 minutes | Cook Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

For the Cobbler Filling:
8 ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
2 tbsp Watkins Organic Smoked Maple Rub, plus 2 tsp
Zest from ½ of a lemon
1 cup water
½ cup light brown sugar
½ cup white sugar

For the Batter:
1 stick salted butter
1 cup white sugar
1 ½ cup self-rising flour
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp Watkins Original Gourmet Baking Vanilla 
1 ½ cup whole milk

How to Make Smoked Peach Cobbler

Step 1: Light your grill and set it up for two-zone cooking, establishing the temperature at 350° F.

Step 2: While the grill is pre-heating, prepare the cobbler filling by bringing one cup of water to a boil in a medium-size sauce pan. Whisk in the sugars until they’re dissolved, then add the remaining cobbler filling ingredients. Return mixture to a low boil, cover, remove from heat and set aside.

Step 3: In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the batter, except the butter. Ensure the batter is whisked together thoroughly.

Step 4: Melt the stick of butter over low heat in a 12-inch cast iron pan. Remove from heat and slowly pour the batter mix directly into the melted butter. Using a spoon, gently place the cobbler filling mixture and all the juice over the top of the batter.

Step 5: Place the cast iron pan, uncovered, over indirect heat on the grill, and close the grill’s lid. After 15 minutes, the batter will have risen to the top of the cobbler and will still be moist. Sprinkle two teaspoons of the smoked maple rub onto the cobbler. Close the grill’s lid and allow the cobbler to bake for an additional 35 minutes.
