This cousin of the popover and Yorkshire pudding puffs dramatically on a hot grill.
Step 1: Set up your grill for direct grilling and preheat to high (450 degrees).
Step 2: Meanwhile, place the eggs in a mixing bowl and whisk to mix. Whisk in the milk, followed by the flour, sugar, and salt.
Step 3: Place the butter in a 10-inch cast iron frying pan on the grill away from the fire. When the butter is melted and sizzling (3 to 5 minutes), swirl the pan to coat the bottom and sides (use well-insulated grill gloves). Add the pancake batter and return the skillet to the grill. Toss the wood chips on the coals or place in your grill’s smoker box.
Step 4: Indirect grill the pancake until it’s dramatically puffed and golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Don’t lift the grill lid the first 15 minutes.
Step 5: Serve the pancake at once sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar.
