Will it BBQ? Donuts!
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Donuts and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!
Pinch(es) of Hickory Smoke Powder
Cinnamon Toast Shake
We BBQ'd two different ways. With the donuts that had a glaze on them we put those in a pan and put them in the smoker over low heat for an hour. We also used cake donuts and we made our own glaze with hickory smoked powder to drizzle over them. To make the glaze take a few ounces of water, some powdered sugar and a pinch of hickory smoke powder at a time until you achieve the smoke level you want The drizzle version we did not put on the BBQ. Before you eat these add some [Cinnamon Toast Shake](https://www.waltonsinc.com/cinnamon-toast) to make them even better!
So, Will it BBQ?
For the two donuts we actually put in the smoker the one with bacon on it was far better because the bacon was able to pick up more smoke flavor, that was a definitely yes it will BBQ. The one without bacon did not have any smoke flavor to it. We think this is because the glaze melted all off of the donut and that is what picked up the smoke flavor.
For the cake donuts, they were just incredible, such an interesting mix of the sweetness from the sugar, the smoke from the hickory smoke powder and just a great donut flavor! This will BBQ for sure and will be done again…and again and again!
So if you are thinking of trying a smoked donut I would recommend buying plain cake flavored donuts and making a smoky drizzle using water, powdered sugar, hickory smoke powder and then topping it off with some Cinnamon Toast Shake.
