Golden and delicious homemade cornbread made on a Memphis Grill


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (or bacon fat)
  • ¼ C butter, melted butter
  • ¼ C oil
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 C buttermilk
  • 1 C cornmeal
  • 1 C unbleached white flour
  • ½ C white sugar
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  1. Preheat the Memphis Pellet Grill to 375 F*
  2. Grease an 8” cast iron frying pan with the bacon fat and set inside the Memphis while it pre-heats.
  3. Mix together the melted butter, oil, eggs and buttermilk.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together the cornmeal, white flour, salt and baking soda.
  5. With a few swift strokes combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. The batter will be a bit lumpy.
  6. Pour batter into the hot cast iron pan and place on the lower rack of the pre-heated Memphis. Close the lid and bake for 35 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the cornbread should come out clean when the bread is done.
