Grilled French Onion, How To?

I saw a post about a week ago for grilling red onion in foil with a beef bullion cube inside.
It said to cook at 350* for 1-2 hours.
Does anyone know if it's direct or indirect and exactly how long to cook?


  • Big Daddy,
    personally, I like to use bullion granules rather than cubes. Just scoop out enough of the onion core to add about a Tbs. of butter and about the same amount of the granules, wrap in foil and grill upright, and indirect for an hour or so. I don't think an exact time matters.

    Big Daddy,
    that was posted 9-17 by West Coast Smokey if you want to just flip back. The thread was named Grilled "French" Onion
    and it had several respondents including yourself!

    L, M, S, &  Mini
    And oh yes...also a 17" BlackStone gas fired griddle!

  • Big Daddy, [p]I've done these 4 or 5 times since the original post using different kinds of onions and diferent cooking methods. It really makes little difference how you do them. I've done them direct on a raised grill, direct on the primary grill, and indirect on a raised grill. I go about 1 hour at 450.
    1 did one batch for 1.5 hours at 450 and they were starting to get too mushy for my tastes. These have been great every time, even the mushy ones! One of the great things about the Egg is that there are many ways to achieve the same end result. Experimentin' on the egg is almost as much fun as eating the final products.[p]Hope this helps, and happy egging,
