TIPS

This was baked on a FireCraft Pellet-Q450™ Pellet Grill. All you have to do is set the grill to 325 degrees, close the lid and wait for the pecan pellets to infuse a sweet, subtle smokiness into the bread.

If you don’t have a pellet grill, you can bake this on a gas or charcoal grill over indirect heat with wood chips, but you'll need to monitor the temp to keep it at 325. You can also bake it in the oven, but you won’t have the added touch of pecan smoke.
