Looking for a good holiday snack, we decided to rotisserie fire roast chestnuts using the Spitmate over a combination of charcoal and wood.  The biggest source of controversy was trying to decide whether or not to carve X's in them to allow humidity to escape.  One alternative school of thought is that you should leave them unscathed and that you know when they are done when some of them explode.   We ended up marking X's on most of them while leaving a few intact.  The first intact ones exploded within about 20 minutes; however, we found that most of them could stand to take on a bit more heat before being done.

While I can't say that we have an authoritative answer as to whether chestnuts should be X-ed  or not, I can say with confidence that they made a nice treat to snack on!
