• 500ml Self-raising flour
  • 250ml Beer
  • 250ml Grated cheddar
  • 150g Bacon bits
  • 150g Onion chopped
  • 5ml Garlic
  • Salt and pepper


  • Prepare an indirect fire with 25 briquettes on each side and let it burn for 35min.
  • In this time sauté the onion and bacon in a pan till soft and starting to get some colour. Leave to one side to cool slightly.
  • Mix the flour and cheddar and then add the beer. Mix until a dough is formed.
  • Press the dough flat onto a floured surface. Spread the bacon and onion evenly onto the dough and roll up from the one side into the shape of a log.
  • Fold in the ends underneath and place the bread onto a buttered drip tray or even in a loaf tin.
  • Place the drip tray on the grid and close the lid. Bake for about 20-30min depending on the thickness of the loaf. The loaf will sound hollow when you tap it once cooked.
  • Serve with butter and ‘braaivleis’
