  1. Melt and Cool the Butter: Start by melting three sticks of butter in a large bowl in the microwave. Cook on high for 1 minute, then continue in 30-second intervals until fully melted. Allow the melted butter to cool.
  2. Combine Barbecue Sauce, Sugar, and Eggs: To the cooled melted butter, add 1/2 cup of Sailor Jerry barbecue sauce, 2 cups of sugar, and the eggs. Beat this mixture well until it achieves a smooth and creamy consistency.
  3. Sift and Add Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and Basic B Pumpkin Pie Spice. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating just until the flour is fully incorporated. This combination of spices and barbecue sauce will give your cookies a unique and savory twist.
  4. Chill the Dough: Refrigerate the cookie dough for several hours until it firms up. This step ensures that the flavors meld together and the dough becomes easier to handle.
  5. Shape and Roll: Once the dough is firm, shape it into small balls and roll them in the remaining sugar. This coating adds a delightful sweetness and a festive sparkle to your cookies.
  6. Smoke at 350 Degrees: Preheat your Traeger or smoker to 350 degrees. Place the cookie balls on the grill and smoke for 8 to 10 minutes until they firm up. The infusion of smoky flavors adds an extra layer of complexity to these holiday treats.
