My husband loves to grill and use his smoker. I've been trying to think of unique recipes to use the smoker and thought of this one! It's our favorite pie—with all the same great flavors but just a hint of smoke! We all loved it, especially my husband. Pecans are a tasty substitution. —Courtney Stultz, Weir, Kansas
