Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

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.
