I know that this must have been shared before, but I was wondering... How do you like to do asparagus and other veggies too? I am on a low carb diet (KETO) so my new Bull is going to be very useful for my meat and veggies diet. (Down about 25 with 25 more to go.) Thanks everyone.

I love grilling vegetables and do so all the time on my gas grill. Looking forward to trying it on the Bull as it will impart that wood fired flavor too.

I usually grill asparagus, zucchini, squash, radicchio, portabella mushrooms, and cauliflower. For everything except the cauliflower, I put them on the grill directly. For the cauliflower, I use grill mats.

For zucchini, squash, asparagus, radicchio and mushrooms, I marinate in olive oil, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and a bit of lemon juice. I cut zuch and squash into quarter spears and just grill directly until done. Sometimes I add a bit of soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce.

For cauliflower, I cut into small flowerets and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper, then grill on grill mats until browned and tender. Best cauliflower I've ever tasted.

I think these will all be even better on the Rec Tec Bull and with the grill grates, I think I won't need the grill mats any longer as I can turn them over to the flat side and grill the cauliflower that way.

Wow, thanks for sharing! I have the grill grates. I am going to experimenting with these ideas. I really appreciate your feedback.

Cool - I think the key to asparagus is to try and get thin ones and if the bottom end is woody and tough, use a potato peeler to shave off any tough outer skin.

I have never thought of shaving them. Just cut it off. Of course my two Shelties love raw asparagus ends! They think it is meat!

Pre-heat cast iron skillet. Drizzle a little olive oil, salt and pepper over the asparagus on a sheet pan and transfer them to the cast iron in the smoker. I usually go pretty hot here 400 degrees or more. Cast iron has its own benefits in terms of flavor and char, but the added smoke is really nice. Good luck with the extra 25. I have a Covid 15 that I need to knock out myself.
