Asparagus Bombs

edited 7:05PM in Vegetables
• 2 lg. bunches fresh Asparagus• 3 healthy dose fresh cracked pepper
• 1 lg. red onion , sliced• 1 generous sprinkling of garlic salt
• 2 whole lemons, sliced• &#189 stick butter - cut into fourths
• 2 whole limes, sliced• 1 red sweet pepper - sliced into long strips
• 6 sliced fresh garlic cloves
• 1 small bag (¾) cup of cajun spice powder

InstructionsFirst, spread out a large sheet of aluminum foil aprox. 24 x 16 on your working area. Place all the cleaned and stemmed asparagus on the foil and add all ingredients evenly to asparagus until well covered. Now, splash some red wine (cabernet) on the top of your bomb and wish it well. Take both sides of your foil and bring them together above the asparagus and fold over until you reach the top layer of your asparagus. Fold over the ends of the bomb so as to create a well-sealed bomb.Place your bomb on a smoker grill at 300 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes. Allow your bomb to steam; away from any open flames. Asparagus should be firm and crunchy to ensure proper presentation. NotesTry to avoid soft, mushy asparagus or your bomb will not explode.Number of Servings: Time to Prepare:

    I tried grilling asparagas directly on egg in a grilling pan. They were gross. Tasted like poison. I had smoker chips in the egg.  Had to throw them out.  I'll use foil next time!
