Step 1

Preheat your pellet grill to 180ºF.

Add 1 cup water to 1 cup sugar. Give it a quick stir to begin the dissolving process. Pour into your skillet.

Step 3

With heat guard gloves or oven mitts, remove from the pellet grill and cool completely. Bottle in an airtight container such as a mason jar and store in the refrigerator for up to a month.


Step 1

Place your cherries on a small baking sheet on the top shelf of the grill. You can place the cut oranges direct on the bottom grate.

Step 2

Smoke oranges, and cherries for 10-30 minutes, according to smoke preferences. (10 minutes being for a little smoke and 30 minutes for a lot of smoke.)

Step 3

Pour simple syrup mix to cover the bottom of your CamelBak Rock Glass.

Step 4

Add your alcohol of choice. Stir (quickly) to combine syrup and alcohol. Add ice. Stir (quickly) again. Add your favorite lemon lime soda mixer. Stir (quickly) until foamed. Garnish with smoked orange and/or cherry.


For a mocktail use barley tea (steeped for 10+ minutes) instead of the whiskey. Bitters typically have a very minute amount of alcohol in comparison to the actual drink. Keep it as is or purchase non-alcoholic bitters like Dram.
