BBQs are a popular cooking option in Ottawa because when the summer heat sets in, many people don’t want to turn on the stove or oven inside. While grilling your dinner outside is common, baking on a grill is something many people overlook.
When baking on a grill, you shouldn’t have to make any adjustments to the recipe. Just keep in mind two important points. First, make sure to set up the grill so that you’re cooking with indirect heat. Second, keep a close eye on the temperature.
To replicate the conditions of an oven, you’ll want to make sure that your baking with indirect heat. Instead of putting your baking directly over flames, they’ll cook through convection—warm air circulating through the BBQ. Learn how to set up indirect grilling on different BBQs.
You’ll also want to ensure that you keep an eye on the temperature of the grill during baking. Make sure to preheat the grill prior to baking and placing a pizza stone or cast iron pan over the burners can help regulate the temperature and prevent over browning. Once you’ve put your treats on the grill, resist the temptation of opening the lid too often, as this lets all the warm air escape. Instead, quickly check the cook about halfway through—rotating the pan as needed.
