The egg is one mean, chili/pepper roasting machine!

I hope this is the right forum.  I'm a new egg owner, so I'm spending most of my time learning what all this amazing piece of cookery can do.  Last night, I decided to grill some veggies on high heat.  I'd put on the corn first, pretty much cook it, then add some early season, halved zucchini.  We had five poblanos that needed cooking, so I threw them in the mix.  It hadn't occurred to me to use the egg to roast chilis for removing the skin, but it is amazing!  I got the egg to 500 with a low grate, and put the pablanos over direct flame.  Blackening on all sides only took a few minutes, and they were perfect.  The skin fell right off.

  • Wanna see pics.  Sounds awesome!
    When you get to a fork in the road, pick it up, spear something with it and throw it on the grill!!!
  • Thank you for the advice.  Next time I will post pics!
