  • ½ cup cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 ¼ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted


  • Heat grill or Big Green Egg to 450°F. In the Egg, put the convEGGtor (legs pointing up) under the grill grate.
  • Add the cold butter, flour, baking powder, salt, and thyme to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the butter is broken down into pea-sized bits in the flour.
  • Pour the butter-flour mixture into a mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk and honey, and use a fork to stir until just incorporated.
  • Pour the biscuit dough onto a floured surface and sprinkle flour over top. Quickly form into a ~1 to 1-½-inch thick disk. Use a 2-1/2 inch biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits by pushing - not twisting - the biscuit cutter down straight into the dough. Put the biscuits in a cast iron pan.
  • Bake in the grill or BGE at 450°F for 12-15 minutes over indirect heat (i.e. over the convEGGtor in a BGE or over burners that are off in a grill) or until biscuits are cooked through and golden on top.
  • Brush melted butter over the tops of the biscuits and serve.


In a gas grill: by cooking over indirect heat, we are turning off 2 burners on one side and cooking over them. If the remaining burners cannot sustain 450°F and you end up baking at a lower temperature, no worries - just cook a little longer.
