Yoder Smokers pits aren’t just for brisket and chicken. Try your hand at smoking a fruit pie using Kevin Lavin’s recipe. It’s a simple recipe with a delicious outcome.
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tbs cornstarch
1/4 tsp Salt
4 cups fresh blueberries
2 premade pie crusts
Mix the sugar, cornstarch and salt together and pour over the blueberries in a large bowl. Toss until coated.
Unroll the dough and roll it out a bit before placing into a 9” pie pan. Dump the blueberries in and pop the other pie crust on top (or cut into strips and weave like I did) and use a fork to crimp the edges.
Brush egg yolk on the crust to get that killer color.
Drop into your Yoder Smokers pit and smoke at 180° for 30 min to soak in that smoke, then crank the heat to 425° until the crust is golden brown and the fruit mixture is bubbling.
Let it rest and chill for at least a couple hours before slicing. Enjoy!
