Beer Bread on the Big Green Egg

So, there we were after cooking our Xmas Day sittin' turkey, with a hot Green Egg. What to do? Well, our solution was get a box of Dasani Beer Bread and a bottle of Magic Hat #9. (Ok, so we planned ahead). Anyways, open the box of mix, pour into a mixing bowl, open a beer, pout onto the mix, fold with a spatula, and pour into a Pam'd bread-loaf pan (we use glass). Couldn't be easier! Anyway, the box says cook for 55 min at 375. Since my Egg was cooling, we simply turned the plate setter legs down, put the glass bread pan on the rack, and regulated the cool-down of the Egg to keep it around 300-degrees. I kept it on for about an hour and a half, then checked with a wood skewer stick through the center to that it came out cleanly. The bread was a light golden color, and may have been brushed with butter and kept in for another 20 minutes if you prefer dark golden/brown. We took it off the Egg and allowed the bread to cool on a rack for 40 minutes. We then sliced warm and served with butter and blackberry jam. Wow. A sweet, moist, excellent bread that stands on its own. This isn't a sandwich bread, but almost a snack on its own. And and can't stress how EASY it was. You have coals cooling anyway, might as well have a tasty treat! No baking experience necessary!!
