Cowgirl mentions this a time or two on her blog here (http://cowgirlscountry.blogspot.com/2009/11/beer-bread-on-drum.html), so I decided to give it a try today. Usually the first time I make a recipe, I stick to it so I know what it's "supposed: to end up like. I didn't do it here, just cubed up some cheese and threwh it in while I was doing it.

:woohoo:Turned out great:cheer:! Stuck to the bottom of the skillet a bit, but that may have been 'cause I was running the drum a bit hotter than she suggested, or maybe due to the cheese. Skillet was lightly greased with bacon drippings before the dough was added. Maybe should've greased more heavily? Jump in here anytime, Jeanie and throw your :twocents: in...

In the process:

mixed and bottom layer in the skillet. Then I added the cubed cheese, and put the rest of the dough on top of it:

Egg wash & shredded cheese applied on top and ready to go:

Sliced and 1/2 gone. Momma and the kid loved it. The kid said it was too smoky, but griped if she didn't get anothe piece every time Momma or I cut a chunk off:eating:...

I used Ozark Oak lump and a chunk of hickory. I'll probably make the next batch w/out the hickory, as the smoke flavor was a bit strong. That could also be due to not letting UDS settle down a bit more before I put the bread in it. I was concerned that the egg wash would seal the top and not allow much smoke get to the bread. It took on the smoke flavor just fine. Jeanie says to bake around 300. UDS wanted to run 325-340 instead of 300, so I just let it. Bread had a bit too much bottom crust for me, but that may have been due to the temps.

Will definitely make this again. And again. Thanks, Cowgirl:sign0092:!

Edit: Just realized this in "recipes" instead of "what's cookin'". Maybe one of our hardworking Mods will move it, please?
Thanks.

Great looking bread. I have done biscuits on my grill and find that any type of wood used for smoking is a little too overwhelming. Just the charcoal alone gives it a lot of smoke flavor for my taste.
