  • Step 1

    In a small bowl, add the butter, garlic, and parsley and mix until evenly combined. Using a serrated bread knife, slice down into the loaf at 2-3cm intervals, cutting almost all the way through, leaving about 2-3cm at the base. Repeat this process cutting perpendicular to the scores so you are left with a crisscross pattern.  

  • Step 2

    To install the grill plate, position it flat on top of the heating element and gently press down until it sits into place, then close the lid.  

  • Step 3

    While holding the smoke box lid open, use the pellet scoop to pour pellets into the smoke box until filled to the top. Then close the smoke box lid. 

  • Step 4

    Turn dial to BAKE. Press WOODFIRE FLAVOUR. Set the temperature to 180°C and set time to 10 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating (preheating will take approx. 8–10 minutes). 

  • Step 5

    While the unit is preheating, prepare the bread. Place the bread on a sheet of aluminum foil and pull apart the cuts in the bread, carefully to not rip them apart. Then fill all the cuts with about two-thirds of the garlic butter and mixed cheese. Spread the remaining butter and cheese on top of the loaf 

  • Step 6

    When unit beeps to signify it has preheated and ADD FOOD is displayed, open lid and place the prepared bread and the sheet of foil, onto the grill plate. Close lid to begin cooking. 

  • Step 7

    When cooking is complete, open the lid, and carefully transfer the bread to a cutting board. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
