After enjoying the amazing Scones from COBS Bread I sort-of became obsessed. When the call went out at the office that we were having a potluck breakfast, I KNEW what I had to do! Scones! Scones with fresh, homemade Jam! Now the weather outside, when I needed to bake these fresh scones was a whopping 46°F (around 115°F) so there was no way I was going to bake indoors, our poor air conditioner was working hard enough. So I decided on baking these Scones on the BBQ.

Baking Scones on the BBQ

Serves: 12       Total Time: 25 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 5 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/3  to ½ cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want them)
  • 1 cup of cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 11/3 cup of milk

Directions

Step 1
Preheat the grill to 425°F, preparing to use the indirect grilling method. Remember to place a Napoleon Cast Iron Griddle or a Napoleon Baking Stone onto the grill to preheat as well.
Step 2
In a large bowl, sift together all of the dry ingredients. Use a pastry knife to cut in the cold butter chunks until the flour resembles sand with a few chunks in it. Stir in the milk with a wooden spoon, until a shaggy dough ball comes together (mostly). Kneed the dough a little in the bowl, then remove 1/3 of the dough and kneed it a little more on a floured surface – only 3 or 4 turns are needed. **At this point chocolate chips, sliced apples, raisins, craisins, or any other tasty morsel can be “accidentally dropped” into the dough and mixed in. I won’t tell anyone.
Step 3
Using your hands or a rolling pin, shape the dough into a flat square-ish shape and cut into quarters. Then cut those quarters diagonally to make that scone-like shape. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
Step 4
Place the cut dough onto a lined cookie sheet, or if using the Napoleon Baking Stone, place a sheet of parchment or a baking mat directly onto the baking stone.
Step 5
Bake the scones for 10 to 15 minutes, or until they are just starting to become golden.
Step 6
Remove from the grill and allow the scones to cool before serving with tea, clotted cream and homemade jam.
