Cape Cook 3 – Grilled Cheese.

Recommended Posts

Ok, so my daughter challenged me to a kamado grilled cheese cook for lunch which I accepted the night before, I think…( Note to self, be careful on vacation and some drinking, when you accept a challenge that you may or may not remember) … I was on the hook to create grilled cheese lunches for 4 of the 5 of us.  


This was the first time I’ve done grilled cheeses on the kamado. I used the cheeses on hand (havarti, gouda, swiss, colby)  and created various grilled cheeses.  The first two I tried to get some nice grill marks and ended up burning some of the toast, the 2nd batch a played it safer, and arrived at a nice grilled sandwich.


Since it was a daughter’s grilled cheese that I burned, I still owe her a nice grilled cheese.    I see another lunch time cook in the near future..


In hindsight,  I think I should have used the pizza stone covered in foil to cook the grilled cheeses.  I’m thinking it would have provided a more uniform temp for the cooking surface.  I wasn’t thinking when I started the grill on this cook.

I'd say that turned out pretty dang good.


I've never done grilled cheese per se, but have done some ham & cheese sandwiches in a cast iron on the grill...and on my soapstone pizza stone.

"on hand" is definitely relative, being on vacation one tends to buy items not normally found at home.:)

In2Fish I'd have no problem eating that grilled cheese if your daughter doesn't want it. Looks good.


Sorry @TKOBBQ she ate it anyway. :-)    It allows me to practice on the Akorn more.

Redemption..  I pulled off a nice grilled cheese the 2nd time for my daughter, she was much happier this time.



That one looks picture perfect.

We do toasted cheese a lot on our classic.  I've had really good success putting the grates on high position, and doing the sandwiches direct at about 300 - 350.  We do use my wifes homemade bread, so it may be a little more forgiving.  We just cooked at a very small Eggfest the other weekend, and grilled cheese was on of our items.
