It is no secret that we love eating delicious food cooked on Traeger grills at our house. Ever since we got our first Traeger wood pellet grill a couple of years ago, we have enjoyed making everything from brisket, to nachos, pulled pork, to a whole turkey and more. One thing that we haven’t tried as often, however, is making dessert or other baked goods on the Traeger.
I had heard that it can be done, but we were so focused on the meat that we never really gave it a try. That changed last week when we decided to try out our brand new Traeger Timberline 1300 from Home Depot. We started out the night by making ribs, which you can find out how to make here.
After the ribs were done, we decided to try our hand at making a delicious cherry cobbler and it was a hit!
About that Traeger Timberline 1300
Before I get to the recipe, I want to mention how amazing the Traeger Timberline 1300 is. This grill is the third that we have from Traeger and we are not at all disappointed. Previously, we used a Texas Elite 34 and also a Pro 575. We still have both and they are good grills as well, but the Timberline 1300 has the perfect combination of size and sophistication that we were looking for.
We got this from The Home Depot, which is always our go-to store for grills and more. It is a perfect time to buy a Traeger grill online since right now the Home Depot offers free delivery on all grills purchased online and free delivery and assembly of any grills purchased in-store over $399.
About the grill itself, it is just loaded with features! It is equipped with Traeger’s WiFIRE Technology and the all new D2 Drivetrain. We absolutely love the WiFIRE technology and the app is awesome as well. With this technology you can check on the temperature of the grill and change it, as well as check the temperature via the probe from your smartphone even if you are miles away.
The app also lets you find recipes and set the grill exactly where you need it to make the recipe!
If you are not familiar with a wood pellet grill, the basic concept is that you add real hardwood pellets into the grill’s hopper, which then heats the grill and creates an amazing smoky flavor. You can cook low and slow or high and hot depending on what you are making.
We always love to cook great food on our Traeger grills when we are making food for a large or small gathering. Pick one up at Home Depot today or buy online.
How do you make Cherry Cobbler on a Wood Pellet Grill?
I was a little bit intimidated about baking on the grill for the first time, since I am not always the best baker inside. However, this turned out great and it was so easy to do!
I recommend you start by preheating your Traeger to 350 degrees fahrenheit while you prepare the cobbler. After it is started, gather the following ingredients:
- Baking Powder
- Unsalted Butter
- Sour Cream
- Can of Cherry Pie Filling
- Lemon Juice
- Lemon Zest
- Orange Zest
- Vanilla Extract
- Coarse Sugar
You will make the topping by combining the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a bowl and then cutting the cold butter into it until it has a sandy texture.
Next, you add in the sour cream and mix, being careful not to overmix.
For the filling, I bought a can of cherry pie filling from the store and then added lime juice, lime zest, orange zest, and vanilla extract + a tablespoon of sugar for good measure.
Finally, add the filling to the bottom of an ovensafe dish and top with the topping (finishing it off with coarse sugar on top).
At this point, you will just put it on the grill and let it cook for 30-45 minutes, or until the topping is brown and the filling starts to bubble to the surface.
Watch some of the process here below!This goes perfectly with vanilla ice cream or just with whipped cream. You won’t get an overwhelming smoky flavor, which in my opinion is good for a dessert like this. That said, it definitely has an un-mistakeable flavor of being cooked on a wood pellet grill and everyone will love it!
