Using Your Hot Ash Grill Rack and Pepper Rack

The 5-in-1 Grill Rack, and the 2-in-1 Pepper Rack both utilize modular, versatile designs that will open up a whole new world of cooking options for you! You can roast jalapeno poppers, cook kabobs and yakitori, infuse smokey flavor, grill some stuffed peppers, make beer can chicken, and so much more. We've put the instructions for each of these units on this page, as well as some handy tips for cooking on them! You can also download the instructions below.

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat (about 375°F).
  2. Core the peppers, and stuff them with a filling of choice.
  3. Place the peppers into the holes.
    • Tip: If any peppers are too small, place a toothpick through the sides of the pepper
      and then place it into the holes. Peppers may also shrink during cooking, so
      toothpicks are recommended for every pepper if possible.
  4. Place rack on the grill and cook peppers for 20-30 minutes. They may take more time
    depending on what kind of filling you use.
  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat (about 375°F).
  2. Rub the whole chicken down with oil, and then season with desired spice blend or rub.
  3. Empty approximately 1/4 to 1/2 of the beer can.
  4. Insert the smoker tray and place the can of choice into the center hole of the rack.
  5. Place the chicken firmly onto the can until the bottom of the chicken is resting fully on the
    rack.
  6. Place the rack on the grill and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until a thermometer reads a
    165°F internal temperature in the chicken.
  1. Preheat the grill to high heat (400°F).
  2. Place seasoned protein and vegetables of choice onto each skewer, leaving room on the
    end for rack-mounting.
    • Tip: Use roughly 1 inch cubes of meat for the most even sear.
  3. Place rack on the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until the meat is fully cooked
    throughout.
    • Chicken - (165°F)
    • Beef - (145° - 160°F | medium to well-done)
    • Pork - (145° - 160°F | medium to well-done)

  1. Place a handful of the desired wood-chips into the tray.
    Tip: Soak the wood chips for at least 30 minutes before use.
  2. Insert the tray underneath the grill rack before placing it inside the grill.
  3. Allow the tray to preheat until the wood starts to smoke, and then place your desired
    food onto the rack.
