    Once the cabbages are nicely charred, remove them from the barbecue and set it up for indirect cooking. Turn the cabbage halves over so the cut sides are facing up. Brush plenty of miso butter over the cut sides of the cabbages, making sure the butter gets into all of the nooks and crannies. Close the lid and cook the cabbages for another 20 minutes, or until they are tender throughout. Baste regularly with the miso butter to keep them moist

    When the cabbages are tender, remove from the barbecue and slice in half lengthways. Serve with extra miso butter, the sesame dressing and top with furikake seasoning and a sprinkling of gochugaru
