We Grilled Baked Alaska, and So Can You

Baked Alaska is a tricky devil, but we trust our friend 0815BBQ to (pit)master making this dessert in a way you've never seen before. Whip up some homemade meringue, pile it high on top of a pastry and your favorite ice cream, and grill it up until it's toasted. Warm, grilled berries make a delicious topping for this classic treat with a smoky twist.
