Cooking Instructions

You’ll never eat plain old pancakes again after trying this easy and luscious Pancake Casserole. Made entirely on the Pit Boss Platinum Series KC Combo, this sweet breakfast casserole features layers of thick, fluffy pancakes which are soaked in a sweet custard then baked on the grill and drizzled with chocolate chips, maple syrup, and powdered sugar. 

How to Make Homemade Pancakes 

It’s a good idea to make the pancakes and set up the casserole the night before as the casserole needs to sit for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator before being cooked on the grill. If you let it sit overnight, all you have to do is throw it on the grill shortly after waking up and it will be ready in time for breakfast. 


  • 1 ½ cup Flour 
  • 1 T baking powder 
  • 1 T sugar 
  • ½ tsp salt 
  • ½ tsp baking soda 
  • 1 ¼ cup milk 
  • 1 egg 
  • 3 T butter, melted 
  • 1 T vegetable oil 
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.  Then pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth. 
  2. Fire up your Pit Boss Platinum Series KC Combo and preheat the griddle to medium-low flame. If using a gas or charcoal grill, preheat a large cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. 
  3. Lightly oil the griddle, then scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake.  Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown.  Set aside to cool for 15 minutes, then assemble the casserole. 

How to Assemble the Casserole 

  1. Lightly butter a 9” round, metal baking pan. Layer the pancakes evenly in the baking pan. 
  2. In a large measuring cup or bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Pour over pancakes. Cover with plastic wrap, and gently press down with your hand to ensure pancakes are submerged in liquid. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight.  

Wood Pellet Recommendation 

For this savory and sweet breakfast, it’s hard to go wrong with the combined wood flavors of Hickory, Maple, and Apple that make up our Competition Blend Hardwood Pellets. 

  1. Remove plastic wrap from pan, then cover with foil, and bake on the top shelf of the grill for 40 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking an additional 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from grill, slice and, dust with powdered sugar, sprinkle with chocolate chips, and serve with maple syrup, if desired.
