Buns on the BBQ!
Today I was in the mood for some fresh bread! So I decided to cook some bread on my Kamado Joe BBQ. You can also cook this on any BBQ. This isn't too hard to make and the end result is some yummy buns or loaf of bread! Let's get cooking!
1. Pour 1/2 cup of the water into a bowl and mix with yeast and sugar till foamy.
2. Let sit for 5 minutes until foamy.
3. Put your yeast mixture, rest of the water and 3 1/2 cups of the flour into the mixer with the dough hook (tip spray hook before use with pam).
4. Mix slowly until blended then add the rest of the flour and butter.
5. Increase speed and scrape down the sides till the dough comes together.
6. (If it comes apart add one tbsp water and if really sticky add a tbsp of flour at a time till it isn't too sticky.) Add salt and mix at medium speed for 10 minutes (or do half in mixer and half kneading) till dough is smooth and elastic.
7. Turn dough out on lightly floured surface and shape it into a ball then place in a large buttered or oiled bowl and for buns shape into small balls and place in bun pan and let it rise 20-45 minutes.
8. Mean while pre-heat your BBQ to 400 degree Fahrenheit with pizza stone.

9. Now put bun pan on pizza stone and cook for 30 minutes and rotate pan every five minutes. Bread or buns is ready when internal temp reaches 190 degree Fahrenheit.
