As I remember, for the first 20 yrs of my life, asparagus was boiled till limp and salted to taste good. OK, it’s not the best but I did like it! The next evolution for me was steamed asparagus, that was a big improvement. Steaming kept the asparagus’s unique taste, some crunch and it actually retains it’s original shape. I would even eat it just like that.

Around the 21st year of my exalted life I bought my first barbecue. It was a Weber 21 1/2″ kettle complete with a hardbound Weber cook book that I still have. Weber introduced me to barbecued vegetables and deserts. My neighbors and I used to have these mini barbecue one up manships every weekend. Basically, we would cook our best dish and then walk around to everyone barbecue and compare. Very serious stuff!

I have tried many different recipes for asparagus but I seem to always go back to cooking it in foil on the barbecue. Maybe old habits die hard but I really like the potency of the flavors seal in that pouch, I could make a meal of just asparagus and be quite happy. Here is an asparagus dish I cooked last night. Give it a try!

  1. Mmmmm …. I love asparagus but have never cooked it this way before -I’ll have to try it !

  2. Ok now that looks good, I have cooked it on my gas BBQ before but just on the grate with a little salt, I will most definitely, be giving your method a shot.

  3. cooking recipes copy cat, that’s me. I’m loving your recipes.

  4. Yum, I’m trying that tonight. Try this sometime, lemon juice, parmesan and cracked (barely-the coarser, the better!) black pepper, open grilled or sealed up like this recipe. Fantastic!
