Smoked Brie with an Apricot preserve topping

This is an easy cook - but always impresses.  Its ideal to share as nibbles while you are waiting for your main cook to rest.



  • A round Brie Cheese

  • 1/2 cup Apricot Preserves

  • 1 Tbsp Herbs de Provence, dry

  • Baguette

Cook Time:

18-25 Mins (As always cook times may vary a little)


  1. Light your Pit Barrel as normal
  2. Unwrap your Brie (Its best that you do this directly from the fridge and not room temp).  Using a sharp knife remove the rind on the top.
  3. Place the brie on some foil.  Roll up the sides so you have a ridge around the cheese so its contained once it gets soft.
  4. Spread the apricot preserve all over the top of the cheese.
  5. Add a sprinkle of Herbs de Provence over the apricot preserve.
  6. Set your Pit Barrel up with the grill grate and place in the french baguette along with the brie.
  7. Remove the baguette when its toasted.  We prefer it warmer and softer for this dish - so try not to over toast.
  8. The brie is done when it starts to bubble and the sides start to brown - normally between 18 and 25 minutes.
  9. Dig in and enjoy !
