My First Baking Session on the Green Mountain Grill

I did my first baking session on my newest cooker today and it came out quite well. I decided to do a couple of small boules of no knead bread, a loaf focaccia flat bread, and a 12” pizza. This should be a good test for the pellet grill.

I made the no knead bread dough up yesterday and then let it sit on the countertop for about 24 hours to let it work and sour up some.

I then made up both the focaccia and the pizza dough with the same recipe using the following herbs in the dough--- oregano, thyme, and marjoram. This dough went into the fridge overnight.

This morning, I formed the boules of the no knead bread and placed them on a dish towel for the last proof which will probably take a couple of hours.



I filled the grill up with hickory pellets and fired it off and brought it up to 500 degrees and placed my Dutch oven and my ceramic baking container in it to preheat them for the bread.



Loaded the bread into the containers and placed the lids on my containers for the first part of the bake.

After about 30 minutes, I took the lids off of the baking containers to finish browning the bread.



Got the focaccia and pizza dough out of the fridge and made up my loaf of focaccia on my peel and then I sprinkled on some dried chives and rosemary on top.





Ready for the cooker.

When my no knead bread was done and off the cooker, I set the cooker up with a raised hearth and stone for the balance of the bake and dropped the temp to about 400 degrees.



The focaccia baked about 18 minutes and I pulled it off the grill.

While the focaccia was finishing up, I made up the pizza on the peel.



Looked pretty good.



Loaded the pizza into the cooker.



It was done in about 15 minutes.

The results of this first bake.



Man, did this smell good!





My friends, this is some great bread.





Sure can’t find much fault in this great little cooker as it does everything I ask of it and does it well.
