    Looking for traditional BBQ accompaniment deserts

    Hey Pitmasters,
    I’m in the Pacific Northwest... not so familiar with Texas, East Carolina, Memphis or KC BBQ. I’ve sampled some meats and sides on-site, save for KC but haven’t sampled desserts.
    I have and will make another brisket with skillet corn bread, Bourbon baked beans and potato salad. Now I need a suggestion for desserts.
    I’m assuming peach cobbler and pecan pie may be amongst them. If you’ve any other suggestions, I am willing to be educated.
    Much obliged!
    Greg

    Cowboy Kent Rollins on youtube has a great recipe for grilled peaches with a Jack Daniels whiskey, honey, and cinnamon sauce.

    There was a BBQ place in Hondo, Texas that had a jalapeno apple pie on their menu, not sure if they are still open but that is one of many items on my to-make list.

      I read about the jalapeno apple pie several years ago, need to get off my a$$ and actually come up with a recipe. This thread may be the kick in the pants I need. I'm thinking maybe starting with about 1/4 cup diced jalapenos to a regular pie recipe - go from there. Might need to sweeten the pie a little more. Maybe cook it on the kamado? A little smoke kick? Ideas, ideas....

      I figured Google would have all the info but I plan to ask my family for some apple pie recipes first, then I can modify them.

    You can go to StevenRaichlen.com and he has a section on desserts. I love smoked peaches and ice cream. One from the Weber old cook book was grilled grapefruit and a shot of Galliano over the top served hot. There are a million things you can do.

        @ JoeSousa, Plus you can make it the day before so you don't have to worry about it the day of the cookout.

        That would be pretty typical at a Texas BBQ joint. I usually don’t have room for dessert after BBQ.

            I don't know if it's traditional but I think a nice bread pudding accompanies bbq well.

                In Tom Perini's book Texas Cowboy Cooking he gives great recipes for bread pudding with whiskey sauce and jalapeño cheese cake. It's a good book worth checking out from cover to cover, the forward was written by Robert Duvall.

                    Not traditional but I like rice pudding cooked with raisins as a after BBQ desert. A little whipping cream on top adds a nice touch.

                    If you're guests are eating dessert it means you didn't cook enough meat. ;-)

                      My wife makes a not from a box no bake cheesecake. It’s a lighter dessert imo. After eating a lot of meat, it is refreshing. That’s the only thing I offer when customers ask about dessert options. I’ve not sold many, people think box when they think no bake, but lemme tell ya. She works her butt off for my side gig.

                        The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

                        the good one grill

                        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                        Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

They're heat resistant enough to handle hot grill grates, and flexible enough to handle tongs. The extra long sleeves even let you reach deep into the firebox to move hot logs without getting burned.

                        Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

                        masterbuilt gas smoker

                        Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
