I got this recipe a few years back and they are by far the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had, they are time consuming, but is'nt smoking meat? Besides you can do it while you'r smokin and have a delicious desert. I am going to throw in some pics just for the fun of it, here are the ingredients: ***Dough*** 2 packages active dry yeast 1 cup warm water (105-115 degrees F) 2/3 cup sugar, PLUS1 teaspoon sugar 1 cup warmed milk 2/3 cup butter 2 teaspoons salt 2 eggs, slightly beaten 7 cups flour, or more if needed ***Filling*** 1 cup melted butter, divided 1 3/4 cup sugar, divided 3 tablespoons cinnamon 1 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional 1 1/2 cup raisins, optional ***Creamy Glaze*** 2/3 cup melted butter 4 cups powdered sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla 6 tablespoons hot water, more as needed !!!!!!a little trick to get dough to rise good is to crank up the oven to 400 degrees for ONE minute, turn the oven off and this will make it about 80 degrees inside the oven which is supposedly the best temp to get dough to rise.!!!!! and here are the directions: In a small bowl mix together warm water, yeast and sugar and set aside. In a large bowl, mix milk, remaining 2/3 Cup sugar, melted butter, salt and eggs; stir well and add yeast mixture. Add half the flour and beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour until dough is slightly stiff (dough will be sticky). Turn out onto a well-floured board; knead 5-10 minutes. Place in well-buttered glass or plastic bowl, cover and let rise in warm place, free from drafts, until doubled in bulk, about 1-1 1/2 hours. When doubled, punch down dough and let rest 5 min. Roll out on floured surface into a 15x20" rectangle. Filling: Spread dough with 1/2 Cup melted butter. Mix together 1 1/2 Cup sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over buttered dough. Sprinkle with walnuts and raisins, if desired. Roll up jellyroll-fashion and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12-15 slices. Coat bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan and a 8 inch square pan with remaining melted butter, then sprinkle with remaining sugar. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in pans. Let rise in warm place until dough is doubled in bulk, about 45 min. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until rolls are nicely browned. Cool rolls slightly. Creamy Glaze: Meanwhile, in med. bowl, mix melted butter, powdered sugar and vanilla; add hot water 1 Tablespoon at a time until glaze reaches desired spreading consistency. Spread over slightly cooled rolls. here is the yeast sugar and warm water, it should always get foamy after a few minutes here is the yeast and sugar milk mixture combined, no flour yet: make sure you sift the flour: here is the dough in the glass bowl sprayed well so it wont stick to the sides: I'll have some more pics as the day goes, the dough is in the oven rising right now.
