How to Bake Bread on the Grill

May 6, 2011

by Camille Storch

Camille Storch is an off-the-grid mom of two living in rural Oregon. She is owner and designer of the Etsy shop Red Onion Woodworks, which sells natural-edge cutting boards and serving trays. She also writes about ecology, agriculture, and the reality of her modest but joyful lifestyle on her blog, Wayward Spark.

There’s nothing more enjoyable or satisfying than kneading bread dough. It’s the kind of manual therapy that gives me the chance to let go of the day’s frustrations and meditate on upcoming opportunities. During the summer months, however, the thought of turning on the oven in an already steamy kitchen used to put an end to all of my bread-making aspirations. Then I got the harebrained idea to bake my artisan loaves in our propane barbecue, keeping all of the extra heat outdoors. That first batch came out deliciously browned with a crispy crust, and I never went back to baking bread in a standard oven again.

The key to a good bread crust is a rush of steam when the loaves are first placed in the hot “oven.” I use a cast iron pan with 12 star-shaped reservoirs as my steam-making implement, but you could use any cast iron muffin/cornbread pan. An extra cast iron skillet would probably do the trick in a pinch, but something with more surface area will be able to produce more steam.

The following recipe, adapted from The Il Fornaio Baking Book, includes a healthy dose of whole wheat flour and rolled oats, along with enough white flour to give it good rising power. The rolled oat coating on the outside is mostly decorative, but it adds a rustic touch.

Ingredients
Makes two large loaves

1 cup rolled oats
2 cups cool water
1 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 cups unbleached bread flour
5 cups whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey

Additional bread flour for the work surface
Additional olive oil for the bowl
About 3/4 cup rolled oats for the outside coating
Medium-grind cornmeal for the cast iron pans

You will also need two cast iron skillets in which to bake your loaves, a cast iron steam implement, and two fire bricks or other barriers to keep the bottom of your skillets insulated from the direct heat of the grill.

In a small bowl, soak the rolled oats in 1 cup of cool water for 30 minutes. In a separate bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and allow to dissolve (for about 15 minutes).

In a large bowl, mix the salt and flours. Add the soaked oats, yeast mixture, extra cool water, olive oil, and honey. Stir with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined. Turn out the dough on a floured work surface. Knead, adding flour as necessary to avoid stickiness. After about 15 minutes, it should start to look and feel uniformly smooth and springy.

Place the dough in a large, oiled bowl and turn it a couple times to coat the entire surface. Cover with a towel and set the bowl in a warm place to rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch the air out of the dough, return it to the bowl, and recover. Allow to rise until doubled again, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Turn the dough out on a work surface. Divide the dough in two equal portions. Punch the air out of each section and work the dough into a ball, stretching the skin from top to bottom. Brush the top and sides of each ball with water. Spread a thin layer of rolled oats on your work surface, and gently roll each moistened dough ball in the oats until the loaf is covered (except the bottom) with oats.

Dust cast iron skillets with a layer of cornmeal (to prevent sticking), and gently place a loaf in each skillet. Cover with a towel and allow to rise until doubled again, about 50 minutes.

Now is the time to prepare and preheat the barbecue. In the center of the grill, place your steam-producing implement. On the sides of your steaming implement, place two fire bricks or other barriers that will prevent your bread from burning on the bottom. Preheat everything on high for about a half hour.

When the dough has finished its final rise, open the barbecue and arrange the skillets so that they are mostly over the bricks and the steam-producing implement is mostly exposed. Make sure the lid can close all the way. Pour water on the steam implement as quickly as possible without dousing the dough itself, then close the lid. Take the necessary precautions to avoid getting burned by the steam.

Turn down the heat to medium or medium-low (when in doubt, turn it down). Approximately 40-45 minutes later, it should be golden brown with a crusty exterior and a soft crumb on the inside.

  • ZipTieART

    ZipTieART said 6 years ago

    This sounds great. I have been baking bread on my grill in the summer time but have a different method. I don't have any fire brick so this was a method that worked for me. I use the no-knead bread recipe ( do an internet search). I preheat a heavy covered dutch oven in the grill on high 'til it's smoking hot. Take off the lid, sprinkle with cornmeal, slide in the sloppy dough, put the lid back on, close the lid, turn down the heat and bake about 40 minutes. I get that thick crusty artisan crust and moist crumb.

  • vintagemaison

    vintagemaison said 6 years ago

    My OH makes all our bread - and very good bread it is too. This is such a great idea as he does all the BBQ stuff as well! Also, in the summer, our wood burning stove isn't used as it's too hot, so we use the electric oven which is a bit extravagant for baking just bread so the BBQ would be good.

  • RedOnionWoodworks

    RedOnionWoodworks said 6 years ago

    Thanks, everyone! I want to make clear that my method is surely not the only method for baking in a barbecue. Circumstances will depend on what equipment you have on hand and what kind of grill you use. Bread is surprisingly forgiving, though, so don't be afraid to go ahead and try it. I recently spaced out and left my loaves baking for an extra 30 minutes, and though it was really burned, we cut off the blackened crust, and the middle was still quite delicious. Good luck!

  • AuggieTheDoggy

    AuggieTheDoggy said 6 years ago

    We once found ourselves without an oven or a grill. We did, however, have a stovetop and a wok. We prepared the dough and let it complete the final rise in a heat-safe glass bowl. We heated water in a (stainless steel) wok, placed the bowl in the wok and set the lid. We kept the gas flame at low to keep the water simmering and the bread "baked" in about 30 minutes. Worked out great. The bread was delicious! Not crispy-crusted, but baked, light and lovely. Enjoy!

  • RedOnionWoodworks

    RedOnionWoodworks said 6 years ago

    @lynellen I don't know the exact calculation, but I definitely use less than 1/4 tank per baking. Maybe 1/10? @AuggieTheDoggie Sounds interesting! I'm not sure I'm motivated enough to tr it, but it sounds like it would work in a pinch. @MorganAlaine Cast iron skillets are heavier, so they absorb a lot of heat but do it slowly. I don't know if a "regular" (aluminium?) skillet would provide enough insulation from the direct flame of the grill. I've haven't tried it, but a pizza stone would have basically the same effect as cast iron.

  • RedOnionWoodworks

    RedOnionWoodworks said 6 years ago

    @trulyenchanted I think a dutch oven in place of a skillet would be A-okay. I recommend that you just go ahead an try it to see what works best in your own situation. Have fun with it!

    I use a sun oven in the summer time for the same reason. Too hot to cook or bake inside. However last summer was a bust and we got very few hot sunny days. Something I no like about Portland. I wonder if the Sun oven could bake bread? I will have to try it. I want to try your way as well. Thanks for the info.

    Our grill took a tumble off the patio during a particularly strong storm, but after we buy a new one, I'm thinking the first thing I'll make is some bread. Great idea! WIll go great with grilled vegetables and a roquette salad with fig vinaigrette. -drool.-

    This looks like an amazing technique AND a delicious bread! I don't use barbeques, but this could get me to try instead of building an outdoor wood-fired oven!

    Thanks for this great article on cooking outside! Recently I cooked an entire meal on my outdoor park style grill. This was done out of need after the tornadoes ripped thru my home state of Alabama and we had no power for a few days. My main cooking pans are cast iron and RevereWare anyway, so out I went with my cast iron! It turned out wonderful and now I know I can do more thanks to your article!

    cool idea in the grill-you can do the same thing in the oven with a pan then adding boiling water and closing the door. once you start making your own bread you won't go back!

    Here in Madrid most of the bread we eat it's just made to fill our tummies... it's kinda strange to find a nice store devoted to MAKE good fresh bread (at good prices, obvious) :(

    Beautfiul bread! I make all of my own - but in my oven. During the summers all of my cooking is done off the grid on a combination of propane coleman stoves, firepit grills and dutch ovens. I'm going to try making bread in the dutch oven this summer!
