No need to wait for the state fair—this is a sweet and smoky treat that you can make at home!


  • 1/3 cup Whiskey Barrel Smoked Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten


Place smoked sugar in a small zip top bag and use a rolling pin to crush sugar to a fine consistency—this will help it adhere to the cooked churros. Combine crushed smoked sugar and granulated sugar in a wide bowl and set aside. In a large pot, heat about two inches of oil to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and prepare a pastry bag or zip top bag with a large star tip. In a medium-size saucepan over medium heat, combine water, butter, and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature to low and gradually stir in the flour until mixture comes together. Remove saucepan from heat and add beaten eggs. Stir vigorously until mixture is smooth. Transfer dough into the prepared bag. Squeeze about 5 inches of dough into the hot oil and cut with a paring knife. You can cook several churros at the same time but avoid overcrowding. Cook about 2 min. before turning over. Remove from oil and drain on the prepared baking sheet. While still warm, roll churros in sugar mixture and serve.
