Smoked Apple Crisp



  • 6 medium sized Apples (tart and crisp is best),
    peeled, cored and sliced
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • Juice of one Lemon
  • ¾ tsp Cinnamon


  • ¾ cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Flour
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt
  • ¼ cup Unsalted Butter, cold, cut into small pieces*
  • ¼ cup Vonslicks Salted Caramel Finishing Butter
  • Gourmet Inspirations Salted Caramel Whiskey Dessert Topping*note: if not using the Vonslicks Salted Caramel Butter, increase regular butter to ½ cup


  1. Prepare your wood pellet smoker to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon.
  3. Prepare cast-iron skillet. Grease the entire cast-iron skillet with Vonslicks Salted Caramel Finishing Butter.
  4. Transfer the apple filling to the cast-iron skillet. Cover with tinfoil and cook for approximately 20-25 mins.
  5. While the apples are cooking, prepare the crisp topping.
  6. In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, salt and cinnamon. Once combined, cut in butters (both regular and salted caramel) until you have a nice crumbly topping. It will be chunky from the butter pieces.
  7. Remove the skillet with apples from smoker and load it up with the crumble topping.*
  8. Return cast-iron skillet to the smoker (uncovered) and allow to cook for approximately one hour.
  9. Allow to rest for a few minutes. THEN top with Gourmet Inspirations Salted Caramel Whiskey Dessert Topping.
    *we doubled the topping recipe in our video as we love the crispy crumble BUT a single recipe will cover the skillet nicely too 😉
