Our first attempt to use charcoal resulted in evenly roasted chiles with a light smoky flavor. We’ve used the chiles in a tomatillo salsa made with fresh tomatillos, onions and tomatos from a local farm, in pork verde, and on chicken sandwiches. They’re so TASTY, and are more flavorful than those grilled over gas.
Since our chile roast, we’ve used the Kingsford charcoal grill with their new, optimized charcoal. I must admit that I’m a newly converted fan of grilling over charcoal. I’m anxious to try the Kingsford mesquite charcoal and their competition coals as well! Look out, all you Big Acres Gourmet Foods customers, I’ll be offering tips for grilling over charcoal in future recipes!
