Peach Cobbler Filling

Cube up the peach slices and toss them in a bowl with brown sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Pour the filling into your 8″ cast iron skillet.

Peach Cobbler Topping

This is where this dessert really gets it’s pizzaz. You can use store-bought biscuits, but I prefer homemade biscuits here. My dad makes some of the BEST biscuits and gravy, and I use a variation of his biscuit recipe for the topping of this smoked peach cobbler.

In a small bowl combine flour, cold cubed butter, baking powder, salt, and milk. Use a fork or pastry cutter to combine the ingredients – they’ll be very crumbly.

Spread the biscuit crumble on top of the peach filling, and then spread some sugar over the top of the biscuits.

How to Smoke Peach Cobbler

After the prep work, it’s time to throw it on the smoker! Set up your smoker to smoke at 225 using indirect heat. Let the dessert smoke for about ten minutes before adjusting the temperature of your smoker up to 375 degrees. Cook for an additional 30-40 minutes.

This tasty smoked dessert is done when the biscuits are golden brown on top, and the filling is bubbly. Let it rest for about ten minutes before digging in and serving with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream.

This is a great dessert to serve with smoked brisket or country-style pork ribs.

You can sub shortening for the butter, but I prefer cold butter instead. It gives the biscuits a texture that I prefer. You can sub other fruits for the filling here. I've had the most success using blueberries as a filling substitute.
You don't have to smoke the peach cobbler at the beginning of the cook cycle, but it does add a layer of flavor that really makes everything taste better.

  1. I just got done making this two nights in a row (after the first night the whole family required me to make it again). I added 1/2 tsp of allspice to the filling and a 1/4 tsp cinnamon to the dough. Smoked the first night with pecan and the second night with cherry. Only needed to cook about 25 mins at 375 and it was fan-freakin-tastic. Thanks for the great recipe.

    1. I think there is way too much baking powder in the biscuit mix. Ours had a very bitter taste. Is 1 tbls correct for just 3/4 flour?

  2. in the beginning did you have the grill set on smoke for how long, before turning the grill to 225 and then up the next degree..
