  1. Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat. In a small bowl, combine the smoked sugar and cinnamon. Cut the bananas in half, lengthwise, with the peel on. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on the cut sides of the bananas and drizzle the sorghum over the top. Leave for 5 minutes.
  2. Place bananas, cut side down, onto the hot grill. Grill for 2 minutes or just until grill marks appear. Using a pair of tongs, turn and grill for 2 minutes more. Remove bananas from grill, peel and place into a bowl. Top with scoops of ice cream, sauce and your favorite toppings, along with a bourbon cherry. For the adults, drizzle with a little Kentucky Bourbon as well. Serve immediately.
