I know that you know, Pumpkin Pie is a dessert staple during the holidays. Smoked Pumpkin Pie kicks up the flavor profile a notch.
I'm not one to protest when they want to cook, but if you want to take a little bit off their plate this holiday season, consider firing up your smoker, and cooking a few Smoked Pumpkin Pies.
Smoked Pumpkin Pie is easy to make, and if your house is anything like my house, you might be twiddling your thumbs while Mom/Grandma/Aunt's are frantically cooking all the things.
Smoked Pumpkin Pie
Making smoked pumpkin pie is really simple.
You can start with a premade pie crust, or make the crust from scratch. I outline how to make a crust from scratch in my smoked apple pie recipe. You should probably make a smoked apple pie for the holidays too...
The Ingredients You Need for Pumpkin Pie
You only need a few ingredients to make smoked pumpkin pie.
Pumpkin pie filling - sweetened condensed milk - sugar - vanilla - cinnamon - ginger - salt - and whipped cream!
How To Make Smoked Pumpkin Pie
Once you have everything you need, it should only take about ten minutes to get the pie ready to be cooked on your smoker.
Get your grill set up to cook at 400 degrees.
Place your pie crust in a 9" pie dish, and place it in your smoker for ten minutes. While the pie crust is cooking combine the pie filling ingredients. After the pie crust has cooked for ten minutes remove it from the smoker, and pour the filling into the crust.
Bring your temperature down in the smoker to 350 degrees, and return the pie to the smoker. Cook the pie for 50 minutes and then get ready to indulge in the best pumpkin pie you've ever had.
You can drizzle the top with chocolate, or caramel, or serve with some whipped cream. Either way, it will be delicious!
How To Serve Pumpkin Pie
If you're making the smoked pumpkin pie ahead of time, allow it to cool to room temperature, and then cover and refrigerate. You can serve slices of pie cold, or warm-up individual slices in the microwave.
I love making desserts on my smoker!

I'm just wondering what wood you use for smoking the pumpkin pie?
Jennifer Sylvester says
Personally, I think a fruit wood or maybe pecan would be perfect. I am going to try this tomorrow when I smoke some ribs on the Traeger. Gotta have a run through before the big day!
Would love to know how it turns out!
Pecan and cherry would probably be amazing
What are your thoughts on apple?
The smoker I used didn't reach 400 degrees nor 350 degrees so I just left it in longer
Do you just use a standard Pyrex pie plate? Idk why, but I’m worried about the glass. Lol
If you can put it in the oven, smoker ain’t going to hurt it
For the smoked pumpkin pie, I am assuming it has been cooked indirect, is that correct?
