    I love grilling asaparagus. Throw it right over the some hot coals and char it up. I've tested a few different seasoning combos, but this is by far my favorite.

    Drizzle EVOO
    Sprinkle with S & P
    Dust them with Williams Rib Tickler Rub
    Throw them on the grill and char them up a bit
    Move to the side and cover woth lid for 5-10 minutes

    We usually just do EVOO and Kosher salt.

    I like your idea better.

    Grilled is the only way we eat asparagus. Simple and easy, brushed with olive oil and dusted with Tony's. Yum!

    Love grilled asparagus. Like other fellows ...olive oil salt and pepper...most of the time. To make it a bit exotic sometimes I sprinkle them with sesame seeds. They go along.

    For a nice presentation you can use 2-3 skewers to build a nice asparagus raft.

    It's one of the most versatile veggies out there. I got my 11 year old son (who hates anything green) to eat it just by saying it will make his pee stink.. It worked.

    Grilled, roasted, steamed, wrapped in bacon, breaded.. the list goes on and on..

    That looks darn tasty! I've never grilled asparagus.

    Points for a new idea.

    This is one of our household faves! But I just do a marinade in EVOO and Balsamic Vinegar, Salt and Pepper. That balsamic char is amazing! Its sweet, not vinegary! For a finishing touch, drizzle with a balsamic reduction. You can easily make your own reduction of some cheap store bought balsamic vinegar.... oh! Heaven!
