Here’s the third wonton appetizer for cooking on the smoker. Cooking these on the smoker add such a nice twist to the flavor. As mentioned in the first of these appetizers, “Smoked Wonton Ranch Chicken Appetizer“, we typically cooked these for family get-togethers in the oven. So far, this is the last one we’ll be doing, but then, you never know for sure. Our second one was the “Smoked Wonton Taco Appetizer“.
On this one, the pineapple gave it a nice little tang! After all, ham and pineapple go together like America and apple pie!
The results? The filling cooks just fine, and that was my main concern. If you like a thicker wonton, I’m including our homemade wonton recipe, but the ingredients call for the store bought wrappers that are already very thin.
So give it a try. The filling is delicious!

For reference, here is our recipe for making your own wontons. Which is what we do. (Recipe was taken off the internet, but not sure of the link)
¾ teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 to ½ cup water
1) Lightly beat the egg with the salt. Add ¼ cup water.
2) Sift the flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the egg and water mixture. Mix in with the flour. Add as much of the remaining water as necessary to form a dough. (Add more water than the recipe calls for if the dough is too dry).
3) Form the dough into a ball and knead for about 5 minutes, or until it forms a smooth, workable dough. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out until very thin, and cut into 3 ½ -inch squares.
