Wow, I didn’t know you could bake bread on a BBQ. You can do it in a brick oven typed arrangement.  It would be very interesting to eat some BBQ bread.

I’ve never done bread in the bbq, no.  It sure sounds like it would be interesting to try, though…
I’ll let you know if I come across a recipe for it because I’ll be searching for new recipes to
try within the next few days.

I’m sure that you could bake some version of bread on a BBQ. I think the most important thing would be to make sure the dough didn’t get through the grill.

That would be so appetizing to have fresh baked bread off the grill with the other barbecued food.

I bet you could cook a loaf of bread using a coffee can on the grill.

One recipe we use is the Crescent Rolls on a Stick:

1 pack of Crescent rolls

Butter/jelly

1” diameter green hardwood stick

Wrap the dough in a spiral fashion around the stick. Leave space between the spirals for the heat to reach all the dough. To secure the dough, press the ends of the dough to the stick. Hold over hot coals about 15-20 minutes. Turn often. When golden brown, slip the roll off the stick. Top with butter and jelly

or

Fried Cornbread:

1 cup corn meal

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Add boiling water to make mush. Fry as “cakes” in skillet.

Sage, I had a copy of a Betty Crocker cookbook for kids when I was young, and it had a crescent rolls on a stick idea in it. It always looked so appetising, but I’ve never tried it! the cornbread idea could turn out to be very savoury and delicious!

I’m wondering, if anyone has some of that terracotta bakeware, could that work as a mini-oven to bake bread? Perhaps the terracotta couldn’t stand up to BBQ heat…?,

I haven’t seen any recipes calling for terra cotta bakeware, but I’d be worried that it might crack if it was put on top of the flame.

It might work really well buried in the coals, though.

Can you use one of those big old cast iron pots?  They seem to disperse the heat around the food more evenly.

Isn’t this why they are called “Dutch Ovens”?

LOL

I had completely forgotten about Dutch Ovens! I used to watch the cooking show where the guy made just about anything with his dutch oven! I don’t have one, though. Does anyone know about these?

I have heard of coffee can bread (and cake) so I think you’re right about that.
Thank you for these recipes. The Crescent Rolls on a Stick sound like they’d be
fun to make… I’m thinking campfire breakfast.  grin
