Smoked Chocolate Brownies

This is another example of how versatile kamado grills are to use.

So the kids wanted some chocolate brownies and i wanted to cook something on the grill so combining the two with this quick and easy recipe kept the whole family happy!

I started out by getting all the ingredients needed together and weighing them out

The ingrediants

  • 125g butter
  • 250g 70% coco chocolate chips
  • 240g caster sugar
  • 25g plain flour
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 4 eggs

I then proceeded to light the grill, and set up for an indirect cook, then i added the chocolate chips and the butter to the pan and put it into the grill to melt while warming to around 150c (300f approx)

Once melted i mixed the two together gently and left to cool

whilst the chocolate and butter mixture was cooling i added the eggs and sugar to a large bowl and whisked them together untill it was a thick, creamy consistency

The eggs and sugar should go from this... this

Next sift the flour into a bowl and stir in the ground almonds making sure its well mixed

Next is to mix together the chocolate/butter and the eggs/sugar then fold the flour/almonds thru the combined mixture so you have something resembling the below picture

The final step before cooking is to grease a tray and pour the mixture in
I used a disposable tray approx 30 x 18cm 

Any baking tray of a suitable size is fine but i used the disposable one to make the removal of the brownies easier as i could simply cut the tray sides 

This was added to the grill and cooked at the aforementioned temp of 150c (300f) for around 30 to 40 mins

Unfortunately the weather didn't hold out and the rain came down like there was no tomorrow so i didn't manage to get any more pictures of them on the grill
But as you can see from the picture below when cooked the brownies are coming away from the edges and the top is just firm which is when they should be removed and left to cool

Once cooled the brownies should have firmed up more and be easier to cut up whilst still being nice and moist in the centre as shown below
