    I've made these before but wanted to try the bread on the drum instead of my horizontal.

    I made a loaf of bread in a 12" skillet, brushed the top with bacon drippings and sprinkled with minced onion....
    Smoked in the drum for about an hour....

    I rap the top of the loaf, if it sounds hollow, it's ready.

    Smoked a chuck on the horizontal with hickory....

    Spit the loaf of bread and started building....

    Added onions browned in bacon drippings...

    Provolone and american cheese... (cause I like them. :))

    Not sure how I missed the bacon shot.... I think my mind was on the plate of bacon and not my camera...

    Slathered the lid with a horseradish sauce and it was ready to eat....

    It was tasty. I like the drum bread.

    Thanks for checking out my sandwich!

    Terry, Thank you!

    Here is the bread recipe if anyone is interested.

    I disolve
    1 pkg of yeast in
    1 1/4 cups of warm water
    2 tsp sugar
    1 tsp salt
    2 TBs of oil

    Mix in 3 1/2 to 3 3/4 cups of flour

    Knead for 5 minutes, cover and let it rise for one hour.

    Then I put it in my skillet or pan.

    I flatten it out a bit and brush the top with bacon drippings and add minced onion...

    Cover and let it rise another hour...

    I heated the drum to about 315. It cooks hotter in the center so I thought the CI skillet might be thick enough to keep the bottom of the bread from getting too crispy while the rest was baking.
    I kept a close eye on it and it took about an hour.

    When I bake this in the oven, it bakes at 375 for 25 to 30 minutes.

    You can add onion and garlic to the dough... it's easy to spice the bread up a bit.

    It was tempting to just eat it hot off the smoker with butter, but I saved it for my sandwich.
