Burnt Finger BBQ's Bourbon Brie 

Makes 10 to 12 servings
Prep: 15 minutes, grill or smoke: 25 minutes

Ingredients

1 13-16 ounce Brie cheese wheel
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup bourbon
1 cup chopped walnuts
Crackers, toast, or apple slices for serving. Tip: Ask your local baker to run bagels through the bread slicer for perfect little dippers.

Instructions

  1. Prepare a medium-hot smoker or grill with coals pushed to one side. Tip: Want to add smoke flavor using your grill? Make a tinfoil pouch filled with a few small piece of smoking wood. Poke a few holes in the pouch and place pouch directly on the hot coals.
  2. Cut the white rind off the top of the Brie wheel and place it in a pie tin.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and bourbon. Pour the mixture over the Brie. Top the glazed Brie with a single layer of chopped walnuts and sprinkle a few extra nuts around the sides.
  4. Place the pie tin on the smoker or the grill over indirect heat and cook for approximately 25 minutes, or until the Brie has softened and the sauce is bubbly.
  5. Serve immediately with crackers, toast or apple slices for dipping.
