  • Z Grills Pellet Smoker
  • Z Grills Cherry Wood Pellets


  • 4 large, ripe bananas
  • 1 cup vanilla wafers (about 1 1/2 oz.)
  • 3 cups banana pudding-flavored ice cream
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons bottled caramel sauce
  • 3 tablespoons bottled chocolate sauce
  • 4 maraschino cherries


  • Preheat your Z Grills pellet grill to 400 to 450 °F.
  • Make a long cut through the skin on the concave side of each banana, and pull the peel apart slightly.
  • Place the bananas in a grill basket, cut-side up. Grill, uncovered, until banana is warmed through and the peel is mostly black, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove bananas from the basket and set them aside. Add vanilla wafers to the basket, and grill until cookies get slightly charred, about 1 minute.
  • Divide ice cream evenly among 4 bowls. Peel bananas, and cut each diagonally into 5 pieces. Top the ice cream with bananas, whipped topping, caramel sauce, and chocolate sauce. Coarsely break up vanilla wafers, and sprinkle over bowls. Top with cherries.

    I love the recipes that are shown here. But can I suggest something? Under the Equipment tab add stuff like grill baskets. You could get added sales to your site but also help out people that are new to smoking.
