Ingredients

Haggis

roasting pan with rack

2 cups 

water

Directions
  1. Preheat your grill to between 350°F and 400°F prepare for using the indirect cooking method.
  2. Place your thawed Haggis on a rack, fill the roasting pan with water, then place the Haggis and rack in the pan, making sure that the Haggis isn’t touching the water.
  3. Place everything onto the grill and cook using indirect heat for 1 hour per pound of Haggis. You are aiming for a dark and crispy skin. The oatmeal will expand as it warms and absorbs the juices. Haggis grows as you cook it, as opposed to most meats, that will shrink as they’re cooked.
  4. Serve the Haggis hot, with a delicious beef dinner. Use a serrated blade to slice the Haggis down the center of the casing, and serve with a spoon.

Cooking a Haggis on the grill was surprisingly easy. No poaching, wrapping, or fiddling about. Like good stuffing, there were some crispy bits, and the inside was moist and succulent. Now that you know How to Cook a Haggis on the Grill, will you make one for the next Robert Burns Dinner?
