There’s more than one way to enjoy Thanksgiving grilling. Free up oven space by moving your side dish preparation to your wood pellet grill. Outdoor cooking makes for great flavors in sides as well as the main dish.

The man behind the BBQ Bible, grilling expert Steven Raichlen, says it best:

“Supporting players make your bird look even better.”

This seasonally correct Cranberry-Walnut Planked Brie is an easy, delicious way Steve suggests you start the festivities and help move some of the crowd out of the kitchen and into the cool autumn air.

“A round of creamy French brie is topped with cranberry jelly or even prepared cranberry sauce, then studded with walnut halves. It combines two distinctly American live fire cooking techniques—planking and smoking. Serve with, what else, grilled bread.”

Visit Steven’s complete Thanksgiving sides article here and drool over grilled corn pudding, bacon-bourbon apple crisp, and more.

Sure, you can grill your turkey, too. If you’d rather cook your holiday bird outside this year, read more about our take on turkey grilling for Thanksgiving.
