Ready to double your oven space? It takes just a few simple tricks to turn your grill into an oven.
Start with a metal roasting pan that will fit on the grill grates upside down. Heads up: If you put a casserole directly on the grates, the bottom would scorch before the top was done cooking. But using the roasting pan as insulation, you’ll get even cooking throughout the grill.
Next, grab an inexpensive oven thermometer to hang on the upper grate shelf. We’re talking $5 to $10 at your local housewares store.
Once you start the grill, set it at medium and close the lid. Wait for 10-15 minutes and open it to check the temperature. You want the temperature inside the grill to be 350F degrees, the temperature at which most casseroles are baked in a regular oven.
That’s it—you’re ready to go! If you’re using a Char-Broil Commercial Series™ 4 Burner Gas Grill turn the outside two burners on medium and leave the two middle burners off. Remember to keep the grill lid down to retain the heat inside. And remember when it gets crowded in the kitchen—a second oven is right outside your back door.
