Throw another loaf on the barbie
I'm still not ready to make the leap to a brick oven, but I decided to toy with baking on the barbeque today.
I made up a cinnamon raisin cardamom bread to try out there.
I used one of the 99 cent quarry tiles I picked up at Home Depot a while back.
I should admit that I preheated the tile in the oven in the house. I want to bake one loaf in the normal oven as the control, so I went ahead and got the tile hot in there.
I baked it with the lid on the BBQ, obviously.
The lighter of the two is actually the BBQed one. I think I had my oven a bit too hot.
It was fun to try this and certainly good to keep in mind that I could bake even while camping, but I wasn't overwhelmed with the results. I certainly wouldn't say it came out significantly better enough to justify the additional work.
Anyone else tried something like this? Your impressions?
