Need a great appetizer that really shows off those fall flavors? Fire up your smoker or pellet grill and make this simple Traeger Apple Crisp Smoked Brie!
Smoked Brie with Apple Crisp Topping
This simple smoked brie is like baked brie but cooked outside in your
outdoor oven pellet grill. When you run the pellet grill at higher temperatures, not much actual smoke gets through to the food. In this case, we only want a touch of smoke, so we’re putting this in a 325° pellet grill. If you want to put some more smoke on it, toss it on the grill a little early, while it is preheating, once the grill reaches about 180°.
We precook the apple topping a bit on the stovetop to speed the process along. That way you don’t have to worry about overcooking the cheese while you wait for the apples to get tender.
Unlike most of our recipe, this one contains nuts. If you don’t like nuts or have anyone with nut allergies in your life that might want to eat this, feel free to omit them. We often do.
With this crisp, the butter matters. Use the best butter you can get. I spring for the fancy Irish butter
