    Had to try making a pie with home made dough,I always used the store bought one. Kevin was kind enough to share some of his many skills,and posted the recipe and how to do.

    No pics of the kitchen mess LOL

    But here they are I made 2 


    Use 9 Honey crisp that had a lot of spots so they are not full



    Thanks for looking,I have to take another pic of the cut pie

    Pies look awesome! I usually am smoking a pie once a week, but use Pillsbury pie crusts.

    Hey they look pretty but are they good?   LOL

    I think I should get a slice .... you got any ice cream?

    I see the whole in the middle, did you mother use a pie "Black bird"? Those pie vents are pretty cool and highly collectible.

    I don't know I mentioned this, I cheat........ you can stick a fork tine or a toothpick thru a vent slit and check the apple slices for firmness, but I bet you knew that.

    Looks delicious, and the sauce.... it literally only takes minutes.

    If you use a dryer apple than a honey crisp you'll not see so much juice. I know folks who mix the types of apples for different  apple taste and textures. Me, I currently like those honey crisp.

    And you were worried.... now you can make meat pies, and  other fruits. it also makes good fried pies to take fishing .....

    Pies look great but did you actually cook them in the smoker with wood smoke if so what kind of wood did you use?

    Hey Dave,

    That is some interesting looking stuff.  I could have used it last weekend for a Cherry cobbler I made from cherries I had frozen this past spring.

    First experience freezing cherries.  Won't try again as it seems to break them down and they turn to liquid.  (Not entirely of coarse, but made the cobbler too wet).
