With the holidays coming up has anyone roasted chestnuts on the BGE? Is so how did you do it? On an open fire?[p]Thanks, I know it's a weird question.[p]Kyle
this question is kool and i look foreward to the answers... i'm doing pork ribs tonight for the first time...
Kyle:[p]Weird? NOT! My neighbor used to grill hickory nuts on an old clay cooker - they were good! Do your chestnuts at about 300º/325º till to your liking. Place them around the perimeter of the grill, not in the center over the hot spot. I wipe the grill down well after it has been heated to remove any grease instead of using foil.
Good question, but I don't know
However, I have smoked spiced up almonds indirect at around 250 for about 30 minutes, turning once halfway, and they come out really good. I have used hickory and pecan for smoke. Both were good to me, but I never do it same way twice
Aren't chestnuts lots bigger in diameter? If so probably takes longer, the key i found is DO NOT burn them, better to be slight undercooked than burnt on the outside. IMO
Let us know how it works out for you,
Here is how I did this last year. I used a foil pan with hole poked in it to roast the chestnuts in. Roast them at 450 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes. To stop them from exploding cut a small X into the flat side. This worked very well, however most of my the chestnuts were spoiled.
