Preparing fondue on the grill will take this classic dish to a whole new level of culinary bliss. The fire from the barbeque adds an element of smoky undertones that compliment the rich depth of cheese-based fondues and the ease of cooking meat in oil based fondues without the mess. Creating fondue dishes go beyond just cheese. There are sweet versions made with dark chocolate, and savory ones that either use high quality oil or rich broths to braise meats and vegetables.
Preparing all of these types of fondue is quite simple to execute outside on the grill whether it is with a charcoal or gas grill. Cheese and chocolate-based fondues require more attention than oil or broth-based fondues. When using a gas grill, set the temperature dial to low but always keep an eye on the fondue. For a charcoal grill, an indirect grilling technique will be needed, which basically is placing the heat source on one side of the grill and the fondue on the colder side. If your charcoal grill has a large cooling rack above, then setting the embers directly under them is also doable.
