In a small bowl assemble the filling. Mix together the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon then toss the apples in this mixture. Pile the filling into the center of the puff pastry leaving 10 cm around the edges. Place the tablespoons of butter on the top of the apples. Fold the sides of the puff pastry up and around the apple filling. Mix together the egg and water and brush the puff pastry with the egg wash. Sprinkle the demerara sugar on the puff pastry.
Prepare the grill for indirect cooking. Preheat grill to medium temperature approx 350 F (176 C).
Place the galette on the parchment paper on the grill. Close the lid. Bake for approx 15-20 minutes until the pastry is golden. Remove from grill and set aside to cool.
