Grilled Apple Crisp Recipe

Doctor’s orders: eating one of these soft and smoky apples every day is no issue. In fact, you might just find that it becomes a favorite treat among everyone in your family. Try a grilled apple crisp for your next picnic or cookout, surprising your guests and earning you griller-of-the-year street cred.


  • 3 Whole Apples
  • Lemon Juice
  • ½ C Granola Cereal
  • 1 Tb Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 Tb. Maple Syrup
  • 1 ½ Tb heaping Brown Sugar
  • ½ Stick Butter
  • 2 Tb Pecan Chips
  • Handful of Craisins


Preheat your Grilla or Silverbac to 400 degrees. After washing apples, cut in half and trim a little off of the backside so they sit flat. Core the middle of each half and set aside on a tray.

In a large bowl, combine the apple filling: granola, spice, syrup, and brown sugar. Add butter, pecans, and Craisins. Fill each apple with the mixture, piling on high. Put into the Grilla for 30 minutes until the apples are soft. Serve alone or paired with a scoop of ice cream.

Best Opportunities for Smoked Apple Crisp

Not sure when to serve grilled apples for dessert? This grilled apple recipe is ideal for a cool fall day, but it’s delicious all year round. Serve some grilled apple crisp at a tailgate or to cap off your teen’s homecoming dance after-party. You may even want to turn to this smoked apple recipes as a different dessert option for your holiday dinners such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.

What Pairs With Smoked Apple Crisp?

A grilled apple dessert can be a treat in and of itself, for sure. However, you may want to give friends and family other sweets and nibbles alongside the smoked apples. Consider pairing your smoked apple crisp with:

  • Generous scoops of homemade or store-bought authentic vanilla ice cream. Remember to look for vanilla ice cream with real vanilla, not artificial flavors, for best results.
  • A cheese plate brimming with various soft and hard cheese options. Be sure to include something like a smoky Gouda to pick up the grilled tastes coming from the smoked apples.
  • Pound cake or angel food cake. Both cake types make nice presentations next to smoked apple crisp. Plus, they can all be topped with freshly whipped cream for a decadent finish.

Of course, you may also wonder what main entrees to make with your grilled apple recipe. Honestly, just about any foods make a terrific first course if you plan for your smoked apple recipe to be the stunning finale.

Smoke Brings out Apples’ Flavors

There’s something about a smoked apple crisp that takes this classic recipe to new heights. And we know that it is the cooking in a Grilla Grill that does it. When you smoke an apple, you infuse it with the flavors of the smoke and wood pellets. Try applewood pellets to see if you can elicit a stronger apple flavor from the dessert. Or, bring out new aspects with pecan wood pellets.

Have fun exploring this grilled apple crisp recipe and getting all those high-fives!
