Wade Smith, a newsletter subscriber, sent me his dump cake recipe and I (of course)cooked it in the pellet smoker. It could easily be cooked in the oven as well but I figure this is a great thing to do in the pellet smoker and keep the heat out of the kitchen.
Because it's cooked at a higher heat, there is no smoke to speak of and you don't end up getting smoke flavor in the cake.. this may disappoint some and make others happy. Regardless, it's one of the easiest desserts I've ever made and everyone who tried it, admitted it was pretty darn good!
Some of you may be wondering why it's called “dump cake” and I'll tell you what I told my 5 year old grandson.. “because you dump everything in the bowl and cook it just like that without any fuss”.
This one is peach but it's just as easy to make it apple, cherry, blueberry, etc. by simply using a different pie filling!
Smoke, Wood, Fire: The Advanced Guide to Smoking Meat – Unlike the first book, this book does not focus on recipes but rather uses every square inch of every page teaching you how to smoke meat. What my first book touched on, this second book takes it into much greater detail with lots of pictures.
It also includes a complete, step-by-step tutorial for making your own smoked “streaky” bacon using a 100 year old brine recipe.
