Ref; Cranberry ABTs

    So when I was up in MI talking to Joken <Walt> we started discussing how alot of things are hard to do a new twist on, every thing has been done. So we turned to Cranberries some how, and then it was 'What if we put Cranberries in ABTs?' which is exactly what I did today. I added some roughly diced dried reduced sugar cranberries into the mix, which was one block of regular cream cheese and a healthy dashing of garlic powder.

    Now I got them on the smoker, just using the MES' chip tray, one chip load of applewood for smoke. I'll tell you how they are in about 3 hours. I'm doing them at 250f.

    Thanks. Sadly the reduced sugar ones? Still not super tart! But I've honestly never seen completely unsweetened ones either.

    Well, fruit is already sugar by nature, but cranberry being generally tart, that should work well. Could have gone all natural!

    I plan to if this remotely works out, but I'll need to hit up a specialty store for the all natural kind/order online.

    Well they got done sooner then I expected, granted nothing else was in the smoker! These are pretty darn good! You get the sweet tang of the Cranberry...definitely will be making these my standard ABTs.

    That's a weber grill tray I've had for..I forgot how long. It has slits in the material so smoke and heat gets through better. Makes things easy to take on and off.

    I'll likely doctor this up in the future, I just wanted to taste it as the most basic form.
