Cookies on the Grill

What you will need

  • Baking Sheets
  • Cooling Rack
  • Water Pan (at least 6 cups of water)
  • Foil
  • Cooking Spray
  • Favorite Cookie Dough or Recipe


Preheat the grill to 325-350; leave your middle burner off.

Place the water pan in the back corner of the grill. The water pan will add moisture to the grill to give you a soft chewy cookie. Line the baking sheets with foil and apply the cooking spray. Lay the cookies on the baking sheets. Set a timer for 10 mins and place the tray over the burners that are off, INDIRECT HEAT. Keep hood closed until the 10 mins are up.


  • Sprinkle one of our rubs on top to elevate the flavor
  • Pecan by John Henry – I used John Henry’s Pecan Rub on peanut butter cookies to add a salty nutty flavor. It reminded me of sea salt and caramel.
  • Hickory by John Henry
  • Killer Bee by Kosmos Q

Also, try to smoke your cookies to add a unique flavor that is actually quite appealing. Woods to consider trying are Alder, Beech, Pecan, and Oak. Start with small batches of cookies and dial in how much smoke you like. Mesquite cookies is a great concept but over smoked, and your left with a cookie that tastes like lump charcoal.
