  • Author: Miss AK

A classic cornbread recipe you can make right on your wood pellet grill. Your favorite flavors with a kiss of smoke.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 and 1/4 cup milk (I use whole milk)
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 cup whole milk Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp. – 1/4 cup honey – depending on how sweet you want it – I do 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 cup melted butter, cooled slightly 
  • 9 or 10-inch cast-iron skillet (you can probably use an 8, you may just need to cook longer)


  1. Preheat the grill to 350F. 
  2. Once the grill has preheated, place the cast-iron skillet directly on the grates and let it get hot for about 10 minutes while you mix the batter.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 
  4. Then add the milk, eggs, yogurt/sour cream, honey, and melted butter. Mix everything together well until it’s mostly smooth, but don’t overmix. 
  5. Bring the bowl down to the grill and pour the batter directly into the hot cast-iron pan. 
  6. Close the grill and let it cook for 28-30 min, or until it’s totally set and golden brown on top.
  7. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
