It might be hard to believe but, I actually have been cooking whenever I can. Last Friday I got home before everyone else and was determined to make something for dinner on the grill. When I looked in the fridge I saw there were cheddar brats and crescent rolls so, that's what I used.
First came the lighting of the coals!

Then there was the dumping of said coals into the OTG!

The ingredients were gathered together. Figuring that there was going to be a bit of room in my "hot Pockets" I decided to throw in some broccoli in an attempt to make it "healthy".

Next came assembly.

I ended up going through 3 tubes of cresents for a whole pack of cheddar brats.

I then set up my standard "Kettle Oven" configuration.

Then on went the pan with my "pockets".

I let them cook for about 10 minutes before checking on them.

The pan was given a rotation at this point and they were left to bake for another 3 minutes. (although 2 probably would have been fine.) They were then taken off and allowe to cool for a couple of minutes. a couple of them got a little dark on the bottom but, for the most part they were nicely golden brown.

Then came time to eat! I served them up with some BBQ Sauce for dipping. I must say that these did not suck. Next time though, I would add more of a cheese component.

Two quick notes, I did spray the top of the pockets with some pam to help brown them up and I put a light dusting of cornmeal on the pan to keep them from sticking.
Thanks for looking! :thumb:

Wow, that does indeed look amazing! A little bit of smoked cheddar lined on top of the brats would definitely makes this presentation even more amazing :-D . A few months ago, me and my brother in law made everyone breakfast on the grill and I gotta say, hickory smoked pancakes are amazing! It is really true that you can cook anything on a grill and make it taste 10x better :)

Nice job Tom...? I like the idea of making your own pockets.

Those do look great. Would you mind explaining the "how to" on the kettle oven. I can't seem to make out what you have done in that pic.

Thanks

I place my coals mainly in the center. I then place a pan to one side of the grill and put tinfoil balls on the sheet that are around an inch thick, kinda like tinfoil pucks. I then place the sheet I'm using to bake whatever I am baking on top of the foil balls. I try to keep the pan as much to the side as possible. I then place the lid so the vent is on the side closest to the side the pans are on. The video (http://bit.ly/bbvaow) I did on making pizzas might better show it. The main idea behind it is that you want the heat from the coals to radiate up from underneath and swirl around the pan as it passes out the vent. If you looked at it from the side you could almost picture it as,
./ .......vent\
/.../2nd pan/\
\.../1st pan/./
.\../ fire.. /../

Hope this helps.

Girls went with Cran, my wife went with Original, and I opted for "No Butz" just cause... :becky:

The NoButz seems appropriate for a "Hot" pocket. :thumb:


Although I hate to think what the aftermath might have been like. A combination of brats and broccoli? I'm guessing there isn't a gas shortage in WI... :heh:

Eating that stuff doesn't really effect me any more but, the other day I had goulash made with whole grain pasta for lunch and dinner, an apple, a pear, a fiber one bar (I actually eat them for the taste :shock:), and a couple of breakfast sandwiches from BK. I had so much gas it was like I was speaking my own language.

I like this idea, they look like a nice alternative to the plain old hot dog. Nice work

Very nice! Those look like a great idea and you can stuff them with whatever. I love those Johnsonville Brats. Especially the beer brats. This is on my to do list

As a somewhat interesting side note to these: I figured out that my total cost for making them was around 1.40 a piece. Last time I looked at the store, the ones you can buy there are around $3.50 for a two pack. Considering you don't even really know for sure what they put in those ones, I'm looking more and more at these becoming a regular staple around our house. Afterall, as has been said, the combinations are endless!

Nice idea Tom! I love using the crescent roll dough to make turnover like thingies.
