The cat's meow ? I saw this awsome ceramic grill at Lowe's today. Talk about being able to bake with steam outdoors ! The inside was unglazed clay and offers many ways of cooking, steaming, baking, grilling, roasting and all with charcoal. The link here shows it from another vendor:
Last night I was browsing through a few methods for bread on the grill, which I would love to attempt- we cook most of our meals (except for bread) on the grill. I was struck by an "awesome" idea while reading forum posts. What about a pie on the grill, cake? Does anybody have any ideas or suggestions? If I put a large dutch oven on the grill would it mimic the effect of being in a regular oven? Also what about baking in a loaf pan on the grill? Suggestions?? I'd really like to try this.
What do you all think about this "Cast Iron Grill Humidifier"?
The description seems to say that it is just two cast iron boxes with holey lids. So is it anything? or not anything?
Sometimes in warmer months I will try to bake out on the grill. It is sometimes quite successful, and sometimes not so much. Does anyone believe this might help in baking bread?
Hi. I'm writing this from my rental 5th wheel. Our house burned about 1 week ago and we were forced to rent an RV while they rebuild the house due to smoke damage. Anyway, one of the silly things I was so disappointed about losing is my fairly new sourdough starter that I made all by myself. I just started baking bread (other than a few minor efforts in the distant past and bread machine bread which I don't count) and I made my sourdough starter about 2 months ago. Had to toss it due to smoke damage.
I have tried and tried and tried again to bake on my gas grill and
all I get is a charred piece of nothing. I only have two burners set
as low as they will go. I have tried with and without my baking stone
with same results. I'm even using a cast iron Dutch oven set on top
my stone. Guess the real question might be what the temperature
inside should be, any one know? Seems like the big difference between
an oven and a grill is the oven has a thermostat and turns off whereas
I tried to grill a pizza...twice. I had read on the Internet...my stone broke both times. The second was advertised as a BBQ pizza stone. Anyone try this before? With success? The instructions I read didn't say use indirect heat, so I didn't. I also read that you could do it without the stone, cooking both sides of the dough first. I'm sure I'd end up with dough falling through the grates.
I must say that grilled pizza tasted good!
Are there any types of bread you can cook directly on a grill/bbq without using the BBQ as an oven. I figure there must be types of bread in some cultures that have some nomadic roots that do this as who is going to lug about an oven.
I don't care about authenticity more that it's always good to have freshly cooked bread with a BBQ and cooking it on the same grill would be handy.
I imagine that you need to use a flat bread so it cooks fast so something along the lines of pita breads might be an option.
