“I needed a special recipe for a competition among grill companies in 2006, so I came up with these. I cooked them on the Big Green Egg and won the contest that day. I think those judges are still talking about them.” –Ray Lampe, Dr. BBQ
Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 350°F/177°C.
With the large end of a melon baller, remove the stem and core of the apples, leaving the bottoms intact. Hollow the apples out so a Snickers bar and a marshmallow will fit inside each one.
With a razor knife, score the skin of the apple from top to bottom ever ½ inch. Then score a ring around the bottom of the apple to connect all of the top-to-bottom cuts. Rub the outsides of the apples with the butter and sprinkle with the brown sugar.
Place the apples in a greased pan. Place a Snickers bar in the cavity of each apple and bake for 25 minutes. Add a marshmallow to the cavity of each apple and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
Remove from the EGG and top each apple with a pecan half and a little of the lemon zest.
