Dough is quite versatile and you can cook it in different ways. Dough can be cooked in different ways, including on a grill. During camping, you can’t bring an oven, but a typical grill should be easy to carry. This will allow you to fully enjoy wonderful freshly baked bread during your camping excursions. It should be a wonderful experience to be able to bake in the outdoor environment with the whole family and friend. In fact, you should be able to make this a neighbourhood activity, especially after neighbours are asking what’s the smell that has been wafting over the fence. During the emergency situation, you should also be able to bake bread more easily, because you don’t need to rely on electricity.
When grilling your dough, you can use wood or charcoal as the heat source. However, if you don’t have experience with handling wood or charcoal; gas should be a good enough solution. This is also a good thing if you don’t like your bread to taste somewhat smoky. But, using gas can be difficult, during camping and other outdoor situations. Regardless of the heat source, you should know about the distribution of heat on the grill. The baking process using the grill should be easier to do if the dough has risen properly. You need to experiment with a few pieces of dough first and avoid putting them directly above the heat source. If not, it is possible to cause the underside of the dough charred, but the upper side still gooey.
It will take a lot of effort for you to control the temperature and time. Some grills are equipped with build in thermometer, so you are able to determine the basic temperature. However, you should know that there could be significant variation of temperature across the grill, due to the position of heat source and wind. These factors could impact the baking progress of your dough. Even if the grill seems to have a perfect baking temperature, you should know that consistent result can’t always be achieved. Even if the first batch seems to be perfect, you may fail with the second batch due to changing factors; such as strong winds that appear suddenly or the reduction in heat source.
It is possible to make your own bun, so you can eat it with your burger patty. The taste should be quite acceptable, especially if the dough has risen properly enough. In general, you should bake your bread before grilling any meat, such as burger and hot dog. If you grill the meat first, the grease deposits on the grill could make the baking process more difficult to control. Also, the charred bits of meat on the grill will ruin your dough. You should also know that grill doesn’t properly circulate the hot air, so you need to check the bottom of the dough more often.
