Try making this smoked blueberry crisp in your charcoal grill. The charcoal adds just a hint of smokiness that makes it special.

Ceramic cookers, including the Big Green Egg and the Kamado Joe, do an excellent job at baking. In essence, they are just big convection ovens that happen to be fueled by charcoal. Cooking a smoked blueberry crisp over indirect heat in a ceramic cooker adds just a hint of smokiness from the charcoal, and that is what makes it special. It’s a perfect dessert to top off a day of great barbecue.

By the way, try the other smoked dessert recipes including smoked chocolate chip cookies and dark chocolate bread pudding with a salted caramel sauce. Links for both are down below.

Prepare the Blueberries

Rinse the blueberries and place them in bowl. Add the rest of the filling ingredients and stir the mixture well. The sugar and lemon juice will form a wonderful sauce and the cornstarch will help thicken it up a bit.

Make the Topping

Stir all of the topping ingredients (except the butter) together in a small bowl. Grate some frozen butter on a cheese grater and cut it into the topping with a pastry cutter. A few lumps are just fine.

Sprinkle the topping over the blueberries and pat it down. This is now ready for a trip to smoker.

Charcoal Only

The hint of smokiness that comes from cooking this over charcoal is more than enough. Do not add any wood chips or chunks because the smoke from burning wood is just too much for this or any of the other dessert dishes featured on Austin-Eats. The smoked blueberry crisp was cooked for about 45 minutes in my Kamado Joe over indirect heat at 350˚ F.

I wanted a little more color in the topping so I finished it in a wood burning oven for a few minutes. But that really wasn’t necessary. Serve it hot.
