My first cook on the new Grill Dome. I decided to make a recipe I saw on Triple D from a place called Elks Public House in Spokane Washington. The Grill Dome performed flawless, holding temps and allowing to cook on one batch of charcoal all day.


For the smoked onion dip
Onion 5 Medium , cut into half
Mayonnaise 4 Cup (64 tbs)
Sour cream 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Worcestershire sauce 3 Tablespoon
Black pepper 2 Tablespoon
Sugar 1 Tablespoon
Salt 1 Tablespoon
Liquid smoke flavoring 1 Teaspoon
For the smoked chicken
Whole chicken 2 Medium
Salt and pepper To Taste
For the quesadilla
Tortilla 2 Large
Barbecue sauce 2 Tablespoon
Mozarella cheese 2 Tablespoon , shredded
Red onion 2 Tablespoon , thinly sliced
Cilantro 2 Tablespoon , chopped finely



1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place it on the prepared grill along with the onions.

2. After 1 hour remove the onions from the grill and let it cool. Continue to cook the chicken for another 1 ½ hours or till it reaches an internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

3. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it cool. Pull out the meat and shred it and set aside.


For The Smoked Onion Dip

4. In a food processor, throw in the cooled onions and blend till smooth. Transfer into a bowl.

5. Add the remaining ingredients for the dip and mix well till combined. Chill in the refrigerator till ready to serve.

For The Quesadilla

6. On a tortilla spread the barbeque sauce. On one side spread the shredded smoked chicken, mozzarella cheese, red onions and cilantro one after the other. Fold the tortilla into half. Repeat this with the other tortilla as well.

7. Place them on the grill and cook for around 3 minutes or till crisp, while flipping once. Remove from the grill and cut into wedges.


8. Serve the quesadilla hot with the smoked onion dip.
