It’s grilling season (yes, I know it’s March. Crazy, right?), and you have just grilled a ton of tasty animals on your charcoal grill. The coals are still plenty hot, and it seems like a huge waste to just let those coals burn out,
but you’re out of meat, and frankly, you’ve just eaten enough cow today to consider the species endangered.
What do you do with a grill full of hot coals after you’re done grilling?
It’s just cooler to call them BBQ Brownies,
because when you say it, people reply “huh?”.
MAKING BBQ BROWNIES:
This one isn’t rocket science, but you do need to pay close attention to your baking.
TURN YOUR GRILL INTO AN OVEN:
The baking sheets provide a little bit of protection from burning.
Remove your grilling rack and move your hot coals to one side of your grill.
Replace the grilling rack and place the baking sheet/sheets on top of the rack over the non-coal side of the grill.
As many barbecue grills are different, you may want to do your own tinkering to get the best setup.
Your goal is to get even, indirect heat for most of your baking time, so however you achieve that is up to you.
If your grill is hotter than that, you’ll need to keep a closer eye on your brownies.
Grab your favorite box of brownie mix
(or make your own brownie mix),
chocolate chips, marshmallows, nuts, bacon, caramels, pretzels,
potato chips, foie gras, lobster macaroni, kobe beef,
(you should know which ingredients I’m kidding about by now)
or whatever else you like to put in your brownies.
but you can use whatever pan you like.
BAKE THEM BROWNIES!:
Most likely, your brownies will be ready in about 20-25 minutes, but you should
check on your brownies every 5 minutes after the first 10 until they are baked to your likeness.
BBQ Brownies take a bit of practice, but they are totally worth the effort once you figure out the best way to make them on your grill.
