Meal/Course - Dessert
While you've got the smoker going, why not throw on dessert after the main course? Apples smoke in 45-90 minutes. They should be ready just about the time dinner has settled and guests are ready for the final round.
The Pink Adobe Restaurant offers up this delicious dessert.

Here is Harald Zoschke’s recipe for truffles. He notes: "If you are a chocoholic (like me), and like it spicy (like me), you’ll love these melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles. They have a pleasant zing, which you will notice shortly after you taste the nice chocolate-fruit flavor. Best of all, this is a truffle recipe that’s easy to prepare! Melting the chocolate in a bowl over hot water is necessary because it would burn easily with direct heat, rendering it useless. Also, avoid even smallest amounts of water getting in contact with your melted chocolate; it would get lumpy, and you would have to start over, melting fresh chocolate."
Serve over Southwestern Bread Pudding.
Rum is the favorite liquor of the Caribbean, where Dave and Mary Jane travel all the time. We prefer dark rum, but any variety will work in this cooler, which is enough for a party. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.
