    Went to a restaurant in Pismo Beach, CA during our annual vintage Mustang cruise along the Calif coast where they served a bbq'd artichoke for an appetizer. Felt I could duplicate it if not better it.

    Cooked 4 Arties as normal in hot water, etc. Gutted out the center fibers.

    Liberally applied a marinade of Olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt, pepper, on both outside and inside.
    Refridge the chokes for 3-4 hours.

    Grilled, turning over frequently for 8-10 minutes. Basting a couple more times.

    For dipping sauces, I had smoked butter, the leftover marinade mixed with mayonnaise, the leftover marinade mix by itself, etc.

    Belch!

    Great looking Artichokes! Would go good sitting next to a fillet of grilled salmon.

    Case,

    Funny thing, my wife also mentioned that a few days ago when I did the chokes.  Maybe this coming weekend.

    How about this for a twist. Take some of the smoked salmon, mix up with some cheeses, dill, capers, squeeze of lemon and stuff the artichoke halves... [​IMG]
