I really love a good smoked dessert, and cobbler is one of my favorites. Cobbler's are easy to make, and they taste delicious. Pair the cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and life is GOOD. If you're looking for an easy way to make smoked peach cobbler, you've found it!
How to Make Smoked Peach Cobbler
There are a few things you'll need to make this tasty smoked dessert. The proportions for each ingredient are listed in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
- An 8" cast iron skillet.
- 3-4 peaches
- Brown Sugar
- Corn Starch
- Baking Powder
- Cold Butter
The hardest part of this whole recipe is peeling and slicing the peaches. If you can make it through that, the rest is EASY. I used three peaches for this recipe, but 4 would work just fine. If you're using a larger skillet, definitely increase the number of peaches you use.
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.

Can substitute pie dough and cut into strips to make a lattice topping instead of the biscuit dough recipe?

What kind of wood?
I like to use pecan or apple

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.
I LOVE THIS!! Thanks for letting me know
Where does the white sugar come into play??
good catch Matt - That's a misprint and I've fixed. White sugar is not needed.
I don’t have a cast iron skillet, can I use a disposable aluminum pan for this recipe?
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?
I wonder if he meant one teaspoon of baking powder our was bitter.
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..
