I am not a baker, and I have never made a pie before. And I screwed this pie up, too. But I'll make it again. I found a recipe from BGE and since I was going to have the grill fired up for some chicken wings, I thought I would give this a shot for Thanksgiving practice. I found the recipe on BGE's site, and it's a few years old. The recipe is pretty simple. I'll save you a click if you don't want to download the PDF I linked to. 3 eggs, beaten. 5 table spoons of butter, melted 1 cup of dark corn syrup 1 cup of light brown sugar 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips 1 cup of chopped pecans 1 tablespoon of AP flour 1/4 cup of bourbon, plus extra for the cook (pit master's discretion) Simply combine it all and put it in a pie shell. BGE recommended 400 degrees directly on the heat deflector for 45 minutes.That was too long, and too hot in my case. I also only had on hand a graham cracker crust. I wouldn't do that again, either. The bottom got scorched, and it burned a bit (I'm sure due to all the various sugars in the pie), but the combination of pecans, chocolate and bourbon was a for sure winner! I'm going to make this again this week, but I'll do it a little lower on the temp, and for less time and I'll keep a closer eye on it. I cooked on the grill grates, above the heat deflectors. Like I said before, I have never, ever, made a pie before, but I will make this pie again and again. Once I get the recipe down, I'll share it again. I'd welcome any tips from those of you who bake on their kamados more often than I do, which is this one time. Thanks for reading!
