Banana Bread


Recommended Posts

My wife has this banana bread recipe that she got from a friend years ago.  She's tweaked it a little each time she's made it until we felt like it was perfect.  And then we cooked it on the Akorn over hardwood lump and a couple of chunks of pecan wood.  Now it's perfect!

Here it is...


1 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/2 cup of softened butter

2 eggs

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups of all purpose flour

3 bananas, over ripened

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon of salt

couple of handfuls of chopped pecans


I put it into a loaf pan that's been greased with butter and then lightly dusted with flour.  Cook at 350 until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.  About an hour.  Recipe will make two loaves.

Do you have permission to share the recipe?  The bread looks like it should be on the cover of a food magazine.  Really nice, and really nice photo.


The recipe came from a good friend of ours and my wife has changed it up enough that it is totally ours.  Please feel free to enjoy!!!  It's good done in the oven but it's incredible done on the grill.

I showed the photo to my wife; she INSISTS that I make it this weekend.  Thank you for sharing.


Let me know how it turns out!  Don't forget the bananas have to be over ripened.  When it's done, let it cool for 15 minutes then turn the loaf pan upside down over a plate and let the bread fall out on its own.  It may take a couple of minutes, just be patient!

Recipe saved, thank you.


The pecan sod chunks didn't add too much smoke flavor?  I suppose the fact it's in a baking pan could protect it.  Have you thought about smoking the pecans separately before incorporating them into the mix?  


I was thinking the same thing.  I think this bread is sweet enought that it might not over smoke like a regular loaf of bread would.

      Hi Kamado Peeps,
      Been awhile since my last post.
      I got a great book on breads; I have always been keen on making my own loafs and pizza with success but never really nailed the authentic artisan type dough. So for father’s day I got a book and I have been having a go with great results. Oh, yeh there is an art to making good breads. I recommend this book for any enthusiasts. Flour Water Yeast Salt.
      All baked on my GAS webber.   As I get better I will challenge myself on the Kamado with some natural woods I can’t wait (wood fired home baked bread)  Also had to included the lemon meringue and poppy seed lemon cake baked on the webber 
      Keep smoking

      First cook on Joetissorie on the Akorn, and yes it fits perfect! I used a combination rub of KC's and Dinasour BBQ Cajun Foreplay. (Dinasour BBQ is the BEST BBQ restaurant in NY State) I also made a paste with same ingredients and rubbed under breast skin and inside cavity. Akorn running at 400-425 deg. Amazing flavor!

      Hi all,
      Just got an Akorn 16820 and mother nature decided to go all cool and wet on me. Looking forward to trying this thing out.

      So I have myself an Akorn for about 4 years. Through a couple moves while building a new house, it was pretty neglected... sat outside, uncovered through winter, rain, etc. Needless to say due to the metal build, it rusted something bad. I ended up getting rid of it and decided I'd see what the Weber Kettle hype was all about. I picked myself up Kettle Master Touch.......... wow...
      I freaking hated it. Was horrible to keep temps. Took forever to get up to temp. Was terrible to use with lump (as it fell through the grates)... just a bad overall experience. Cooked on it about 4 times then sold it. Now... I live in a VERY windy area. Like 10-15 mph winds almost constantly.... so I'm sure that played a part... but it was no enjoyable.
      I decided to pick myself up a new Kamado Joe Classic from Lowes for $650..... I'm in love.

      Waiting, waiting, waiting for the Kamado Big Joe to arrive. Nothing.
      Welp, expecting friends from out of town this weekend and can wait no longer. So, I picked up a Weber Summit Charcoal grill (kamado style) along with a Pit Viper fan. Once the Big Joe arrives I'll have two Kamados!
      Anyhow, I tried the new Fireboard 2 Drive on this grill along with a Pit Viper fan for a hot smoked pork belly session.

      I was in a bit of a rush to get things going so I used the fan to stoke the coals up to temperature with a target of 225F. With the Weber bottom vent fully closed and the top vent 1/4 open, the temperature initially overshot about 15 degrees. I brought the temperature down by opening the lid briefly when adding the belly and to make other adjustments (the dips in the graph).
      Once things were settled in, though, the temperature was regulated on the order of tenths of a degree around the 225F target . That's pretty awesome.
      Sitting at the computer typing emails and monitoring the temperatures on a browser. With the Fireboard 2 Drive and the kamado, this set-up has better performance and regulation than our kitchen oven.
