Cookies on the grill? Yes, you read that correctly. This Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from Char-Griller Ambassador James Llorens of Certified Creole BBQ has a smokey twist that makes them addictive.

From James: "I've been making these cookies since I was in my early 20’s, single with no kids and living in Chicago Downtown area. I love cookies and just wanted to make my own. Cookies are one of my favorite go to sweets. Making cookies with my family has turned into family tradition. We make these often throughout the year but always make them a bit more around the Holidays. This time around I took them out to the smoker and glad I did, though they might be to smokey but they were awesome and not smokey at all. They were actually spot on."
