Chestnuts used to be one of the most popular holiday treats, but recently few people seem to know how to prepare. What you need is a high, intense heat to cook the chestnuts to make them sweet and wonderful. Chances are you have the perfect piece of cooking equipment sitting on your patio. Your grill, whether gas or charcoal will give you the kind of heat you need to cook chestnuts perfectly.
