    Can you smoke fruit? I

    Call me crazy, others have.. My PBC just arrived and that is the first thought that occurred to me. I am not thinking strawberries or anything delicate. I can only imagine how amazing some pears and stone fruits would taste when smoked. I realize I may have to wrap them ( banana leaf??) but I would see that as improving the taste. Any thoughts or comments welcome. Thanks

      Sweet things work well, peaches and pineapple especially, but not usually smoked too much, more of a sear to caramelizing the sugars.

          Hey Wunky. Welcome to the Pit! I see you joined a few days ago. I've not smoked/grilled any fruit yet, but your post has me thinking pineapple would be awesome.

              When I was a teen in the 70s, the rumor was that you could get high smoking dried banana peels, but I guess that's not kind of smoking fruit you were asking about

                As others have pointed out, pineapple does really well on the grill. I like to add some cinnamon to it while it's grilling.
