How to Make Your Own Rocket Grill Pouch

Updated November 21, 2016

The Sunbeam Rocket Grill features a compact, self-contained design perfect for winter grilling or for tiny apartment kitchens. This little grill resembles a miniature slow cooker, but has a vent and controls on the top. To use, all you have to do is pop the food of your choice into a parchment paper pouch and slip it into your Rocket. However, purchasing pre-made pouches can get expensive. Fortunately, you can create your own pouches at home for less.

Prepare your grilling recipe as your recipe instructs. Be creative here; you can grill anything from fruit to fish. Some possibilities include fish with asparagus, chicken breasts with peach salsa or cinnamon apples with walnuts.

Cut a rectangle of parchment paper for each serving you plan to grill. The rectangles should be about 12 inches by 15 inches, giving you plenty of room to place the food in the centre.

Stack your food in the centre of the parchment paper parallel to the narrow ends of the paper. Keeping the stack neat and tidy. None of the food should go over the edge of the paper; if this happens, your portion is too large.

Bring the short ends of the paper up and pinch them together right over the food. Fold the ends of the paper downward, still pinching them together. Fold them ¼ inch at a time until the paper is snug around your food.

Pinch the open ends of your packet closed. You can either twist them like you're closing a bread bag or fold them in toward the food ¼ inch at a time until the food is tight and snug inside the paper.
