  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ¾ cups all purpose flour can increase to 3 cups if dough is too sticky and wet
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups whole pecans cold smoked for added smoky flavor
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips cold smoked for added smoky flavor


  • Preheat your pellet smoker (or oven) to 325 degrees F. I recommend using a mild wood like pecan or maple. These cookies can also be baked in the oven at the same temperature.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, molasses and white and brown sugars with an electric mixer.
  • While the mixer is running on low speed, add in the eggs one at a time until incorporated and then mix in the vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the batter 1 cup at a time, mixing until fully incorporated before adding more.
  • Turn off the mixer and use a rubber spatula to stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.
  • Form the dough into 2 oz balls and place on a baking sheet pan lined with parchment paper (about 12 cookies per sheet pan).
  • Place the baking sheet on your pellet grill grates, close the lid, and bake for 12-13 minutes.



Baking at 325 on a smoker will not give you a lot of smoke flavor. If you want to try more smokiness in your cookies, you can cold smoke the chocolate chips (using a smoke tube) for 30-60 minutes.
