This past father’s day we got Kyle a charcoal grill. We had a propane grill and honestly, we never used it. It was one of the first things we bought when we moved to our house almost 8 years ago and it was just a waste of money. We didn’t like how it cooked, how it tasted, and just never ended up using it. But recently we had been talking about grilling and how much we love charcoal grills – that Lennox and I thought it was a great Father’s Day gift. And you know what? It was! Ever since we got it, Kyle has been grilling dinner almost every night. It’s so nice to get the mess and heat out of the kitchen and get the food cooked outside. Now that we are new charcoal grill owners, we are trying different types of charcoal and new recipes everyday.
After having some issues with another type of charcoal, we decided to go back to the basics of grilling and pick up some Kingsford Charcoal and Kingsford odorless lighter fluid. You really can’t go wrong when you buy Kingsford AND while at The Home Depot to pick it all up – they had the Kingsford Original Twinpacks on display, two 18lb bags at half the normal price – $9.88!
As I said earlier, we are trying new recipes almost everyday and earlier this week I tried making dessert on the grill – a berry pie – that turned into a berry cobbler. This recipe is really easy and I really had no idea that you could bake something like this right on the grill.
Fire Grilled Berry Cobbler
- Pie crust dough
- 2 tinfoil pie pans
- Cup up into small pieces, about a cup of each type of berry you are going to include. I used Strawberries, Blueberries and Raspberries.
- Combine all the berries together in a large bowl.
- Add 1 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon water to bowl of berries and mix.
- Take your pre-made pie crust and lay it over a tinfoil pie pan. Carefully press down a little bit to make it dip into the pan. This will not take up the whole pie pan so there is no need to push it all the way to the edges.
- Pour the berry mixture onto the pie crust.
- Fold the pie crust over the berries carefully, pinching the corners. I added a pie crust star on top as well for 4th of July!
- Now it’s time to cook this berry cobbler pie on the grill! We started up our grill using Kingsford Original charcoal and let the flames die down. Once the grill was warm, we placed the empty tin foil pie pan upside down on the grill. Place the other pie pan that the berries are in on top of this pie pan. Note: Make sure that you don’t cook this with any other foods and that the grates are pretty clean. If you get too much smoke going in the grill, it will give your cobbler a smoked taste.
- Let your pie bake on the grill for 20-30 minutes, or until the pie crust is golden brown and the berries are bubbling.
- Remove from heat, let cool for 20-30 minutes (berries and juice will thicken as it cools) and serve!
There are so many things you can use your grill for – it’s not just for hot dogs, hamburgers and steak, although all those things are delicious – try experimenting with some new recipes like we are! Whatever you decide on grilling this 4th of July and summer – I would recommend going back to the basics of grilling and pick up a Kingsford Original Twinpack at The Home Depot.
