Our Chamber of Commerce asked if our store would be interested in setting up a "promotion" this holiday seasoning by "roasting chestnuts" on some of our grills...[p]First- does anyone have a good (i.e.- fairly simple)recipe for "roasting chestnuts"[p]Second- has anyone ever used an Egg to roast those units?[p]Thanks

    My guess is that you would do them indirect at about 375º - 400º all we've ever done in the oven is toss them on a cookie sheet and wait. They're dang good and a lot of fun.
    Let us know how they turn out. I've never thought of doing them on MR. Egg!

    I did it last year. The temp was around 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Be sure to prick or make a small cut into the chestnut before roasting. I used a small foil pan with holes punched in it for a roasting pan.[p]Most of the chestnuts I had were bad. I got very few that were good to eat out of a pound. Good luck.
