Let's get grilling

Apple Spice Cupcakes

1 Pre-heat recteq grill or wood pellet grill to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with liners and set aside.
2 In a medium size mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, Ray’s Warm Apple Pie Rub, and allspice. Mix to combine and set aside.
3 In a large mixing bowl, combine the room temperature butter and brown sugar, beating using an electric mixer until combined and creamy (about 30 to 60 seconds).
4 Add in eggs and beat again.
5 Add applesauce and lightly beat.
6 Gradually add in flour mixture, mixing by hand with a spatula until it’s just incorporated in. The batter will be thick.
7 Fill each muffin tin ¾ full with batter. Bake for 19–21 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
8 Allow cupcakes to cool in a pan for 10 minutes, then move them onto a cooling rack to cool.

Pumpkin Buttercream

1 Place room temperature butter in mixing bowl. Beat using an electric mixer until smooth (1 minute).
2 Add in the pumpkin puree and the pumpkin pie spice to the mixing bowl. Mix using a spatula.
3 Add in the powdered sugar, one cup at a time. Mix with a spatula at first so the powdered sugar does not go everywhere. Once all the powdered sugar is incorporated, beat the buttercream using an electric mixer. Beat for 1–2 minutes or until smooth.
