The Charcoal Companion non-stick pepper rack is an easy and convenient way to make jalapeño poppers on the grill. The rack will hold 18 peppers upright so the stuffing won’t come out while you’re cooking. The non-stick finish makes cleanup a snap and the folding legs makes storage as easy as can be. Another interesting and great tool for making jalapeño poppers on the grill is the Charcoal Companion pepper corer. It’s easy to use; the serrated edge right here is used for the top to cut the top off, and the barrel goes inside the pepper. With a twist of the wrist, you pull out the pulp and the seeds. Let me show you how it works.

First, I’m going to cut the top off… Then put the corer inside… Carefully take out my pulp and seeds. Gonna leave a few in there just because I like my peppers a little spicy. And then they’re ready for stuffing!

I’m filling these jalapeño peppers with a mixture of cream cheese, cheddar cheese, red bell pepper, grilled corn, and shallots, and a little cilantro. You’re gonna want to fill these up all the way to the top. Set it in your rack, and they’re ready to go onto the grill. You’re gonna do these over indirect heat for about thirty minutes. These have been cooking for about thirty minutes, I’m going to go ahead and take them off the grill. I know that they’re done because the peppers have started to lose some of their green color, and the cheese is brown and bubbly. They look delicious.

So there you have it: jalapeño poppers on the grill. For more information and recipe ideas, visit us on Facebook.
