Cooking In Cast Iron On a Grill
There’s a reason why cast iron has been unbeatably popular for the past 2,000 years in several different parts of the world: it’s reliable, multi-purpose, and perfect for cooking delicious meals of all sorts. Cast-iron has the same kind of dedicated fan base as grills do, and if you’re the kind of person who loves their cast-iron skillet and their grill, you may have wondered about combining the two! Well, wonder no longer because this is how to use cast iron on your grill to get the best of both worlds!
What To Use
When deciding how to use cast iron on your grill, the first thing you need to do is choose the right cast-iron tool! The most common cast-iron cooking tool is the skillet, but there are an array of other options available for different kinds of meals. A cast-iron griddle is ideal if you’re grilling eggs and sausages for breakfast, and a cast-iron dutch oven can open up possibilities for pulled pork and baked beans for dinner!
Remember To Season
Just like you season your grill grates before getting started, it’s vital that you season your cast iron before cooking too! In order to give your cast iron some flavour and prevent food from sticking to it, evenly spread a high-fat oil on it like canola or coconut oil, then bake the cast iron for about an hour at 350 degrees. Let your cast iron cool, then you’re ready to use it on your grill!
Cook The Perfect Meal!
Once you’ve chosen and seasoned your cast iron, it’s time to cook! Because of its versatility, cast iron can be used to cook anything from steak, to bread, to deserts. Here are a couple of ideas about what to cook while using cast iron on your grill!
- Cast-iron skillets are a great place to cook a delicious steak, because it allows the steak to cook in its own juices, making the meat very succulent.
- Cast-iron pans are a great option for cooking hamburgers for an even cook with no fear of burned edges.
- Cast-iron Dutch ovens are a great tool to bake delicious homemade bread on the grill!
