Primal Grill is filmed at Esplendor Resort in Rio Rico.
Episode: 208 :: IN THE FIRE
Source: How to Grill by Steven Raichlen (Workman Publishing, NY, 2001)
Method: Direct Grilling
Category: Desserts
12 shortbread cookies
6 squares (each 2 inches) superior dark chocolate
6 large marshmallows

Other Items Needed:
6 long metal or bamboo skewers or sticks, bamboo skewers soaked for 1 hour in cold water to cover, then drained

1. Arrange the cookies on a platter, topping half with squares of chocolate. Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to high.

2. When ready to cook, if using a charcoal grill, rake the lit coals into a mound (dont place the top grate on the grill). Skewer the marshmallows on skewers or sticks and hold them over the fire. Roast until browned, or even black, rotating the marshmallows to ensure even cooking. This will take 3 to 5 minutes. You can even set the marshmallows on fire (again, rotate the skewers to ensure even burning). If youve lit your marshmallow, blow out the fire.

3. Immediately position each marshmallow on top of a piece of chocolate. Place another cookie on top and press down to squish the marshmallow into the chocolate. Pull out the skewer. Wait for a few seconds for the hot marshmallow to melt the chocolate, then eat the smore like a sandwich.

Note: Never succumb to the temptation to eat a hot marshmallow directly off a metal skewer: Youll burn your lips.
