Corny Cornbread:
If your grill has an upper rack, it's best to cook the corn bread there. Spray PAM really well on a preheated cast iron skillet or use two 9 in cake pans stacked on top of each other (to make the pan thicker.)  1 3/4 cups cornmeal 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. baking powder 2 Tbsps. sugar (optional) Mix and then add: 2 eggs 2 cups buttermilk 1 can of whole kernel corn, drained (optional) Mix, but only until everything is combined (don't overmix).
