Yes. Yes. Yes.

It's almost like baking in the house. I used a bread pan, but, I lined it with a sheet of aluminum foil.

The bread is now baking in the grill. The electric Char-Broil grill is set at 3. I'm hoping the temperature stays at 350ish.

It's tempting to open and look, but, that will affect my temperature. I'll wait until the first hour is over. It's mostly for the eggs, I guess.

I put one banana in it and three stalks of thin sliced rhubarb.

It's hot outside. We have been running the air conditioner to reduce both the heat and humidity in the house.

So. Baking bread in the house seems a little daunting, considering all of that, so, here I sit in the garage. The grill is holding a nice 350 degree temperature.

The bread is putting out some nice smell.

It's been 50 minutes. Is that a burning smell? I have to open it.

It's a grill, Char. It's supposed to smell like smoke.

Smoked Bread

Smoked bread. Isn't that an interesting concept?

It's Starting to Rise in the Center

When I first checked it, the streusel topping was melting together. The sides were boiling and bubbling.

It's best to leave it in the heat until the streusel topping has dried and has become slightly crisp to the top.

Then, carefully, take it off the heat. Peel the foil away from the bread.

Streusel is Dry - It is Done
