One of Steven Raichlen’s Signature Recipes for the Big Green Egg. Use Big Green Egg Grill Rings to perfectly situate the apples on your EGG.
Set the EGG for indirect cooking with a convEGGtor at 300°F/177°C.
Core the apples using an apple corer or melon baller, but don’t cut all the way through the bottom. The idea is to create a cavity for stuffing.
Cream the butter and brown sugar in a medium bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the currants, cookie crumbs, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Spoon the mixture into the apples, dividing it evenly among them. Stick a cinnamon stick upright in the filling of each apple and slide a marshmallow half (if using) to the top of the apple, cut sides down.
Arrange the apples on Big Green Egg Grilling Rings, or make some of your own with crumpled aluminum foil. Smoke the apples until the sides are soft, but not collapsing, 1 to 1½ hours. If the marshmallows start to brown too much, tent the apples with foil. Serve the apples hot, with ice cream on the side if desired. Serves 6.
