    BlueSmoke, I grilled some just the other night. Just sliced about 1/8-1/4 inch thick, sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled with a little rub (Gilded Splinters or EZ-Life worked just fine) and then placed on a medium grill for about 15 minutes. (7 minutes one side, flipped and left for another 7-8 minutes) turned out great. My wife thought they needed a few more grill marks but I thought they were great.

    BlueSmoke,
    Try the recipe below, it's great!
    Can't remember where I got it from.
    B D
    Grilled Eggplant Marinara
    Method: Grill/Direct
    Ingredients:
    1 1/2 pounds fresh eggplant
    2 egg whites
    2 cups Italian bread crumbs
    Olive Oil
    1 Jar Marinara Sauce
    Mozzarella Cheese (to suit taste)
    Preparation:
    1. Wash and peel the eggplant.
    2. Cut into 3/4-1 inch slices.
    3. In a frying pan, heat just enough olive oil to cover the bottom.
    4. Dip the eggplant slices in the egg whites and then in the bread crumbs.
    5. Place in the hot oil- only long enough to "seal" the egg white/breadcrumbs.
    6. Place on the grill and cook until tender.

    BlueSmoke,[p]There's a phenomenal Middle Eastern dish called "baba ganoush," which is a dip/paste thing that is great on pita bread. You char the eggplants over a hot fire for about half an hour till they are soft. Let 'em cool and scoop out the smoky flesh. Blend it with a little lemon, olive oil, garlic, onion, salt, and maybe tahini [sesame paste].[p]Addictive!
