  • 2/3 cups (158 ml) sugar 
  •  Crisco 
  • 1/4 teaspoons (1.3 ml) baking powder 
  • eggs 
  • 1/2 cups (120 ml) flour 
  • 6 strips of bacon 
  • 1 stick of butter 
  • 1 cup (240 ml) Milk Chocolate Chips 
  • 1/3 cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 cups (120 ml) of your favorite dark beer 


Step 1

Fry the bacon over Medium/Low heat. Once cooked to the desired doneness, remove the bacon strips from the pan and onto a paper towel to drain. Chop into pieces once cooled.

Step 2

Set up your EGG for indirect cooking (with the convEGGtor) for 375°F/190°C.

Step 3

Using a whisk, beat the eggs. Once beaten, mix in the sugar and beer. Set aside.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder and combine.

Step 5

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chocolate chips. Continue stirring until smooth. Continually stirring will keep the chocolate from burning.

Step 6

Combine the bacon and dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and mix together. It is important not to over mix. Over mixing will make the brownie more cake like.

Step 7

Coat the cast iron skillet with Crisco. Pour the brownie batter into the skillet. Using the handle, shake the skillet gently to even out the batter.

Step 8

Add the skillet to the grill once the EGG has reached the target temperature. Cook time will range depending on skillet size, but the goal is approx. 20-25 minutes. Rotate the skillet halfway through the bake to ensure it is cooking evenly.

Step 9

Just like any other baking, use toothpicks to determine doneness.

Step 10

Once baked, allow the brownie to cool for approx 10-15 minutes before serving.
