How do I prepare Camembert on the BBQ?

First, remove the plastic wrapping from the Camembert and place the cheese back in the wooden box. Make a few incisions in the top of the cheese and add some toppings, if desired. Optional – wrap the box in aluminum foil – and place on the BBQ for about 10-15 minutes on indirect heat.

Which BBQ technique is best for Camembert?

With what dishes can I serve Camembert from the BBQ?

Camembert from BBQ goes well with French bread, crackers, or as a dip with vegetable sticks. You can also use it in a salad or as a topping on a burger.

How do I know when the Camembert is good?

Camembert is ready when the inside is soft and runny. You can test this by gently pressing into the top of the cheese; if it feels soft, it is melted and ready to serve.

Can I use other cheeses on the BBQ?

Yes, other cheeses such as Brie or even softer cheddar can also be prepared on the BBQ, but keep in mind different melting times and textures.
