  • Heat a gas grill on low heat for at least 10 minutes.
  • Lightly rub the sides and bottom of a 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven with canola oil and set aside.
  • Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk together the honey, oil, eggs, and milk in a small mixing bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
