1. Set up your grill for indirect heat (hot coals on one side of the grill and no coals on the other side of the grill) – You’re looking for a grill temperature of 425 degrees Fahrenheit.


1. Place your iron pot over the coals for direct grilling 2. Cut up 2 slices of bacon and put into the pan – You are looking for the bacon fat to start as the base of your gravy 3. Add 2 Tbs of chopped onion into the pan to sauté in the bacon fat 4. Add 2 Tbs of sweet butter – you are starting to make a Rue for the gravy, a rue helps thicken up the gravy 5. Dust 3 Tbs of flour into the pan stirring constantly while you do it. 6. Make sure the flour is cooked through 7. Add ¼ cup of wine or beer to the pot – this adds richness to the gravy 8. Add roast drippings to the pot – if available 9. Add 1 ½ cups of beef broth to the pan – if roast drippings are not available add extra beef broth 10. Add 1 or 2 tsp of SPG to the pan 11. Move the pan to the indirect heat side of the grill (side with no coals) 12. Stir the gravy to mix and let simmer to thicken.- it will take a few minutes 13.
