Grill Roasted Asparagus


  • 1 pound asparagus, tough stalks trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  1. Set the grill up for indirect medium heat (350°F): Preheat the grill, and set it up for indirect medium heat (350°F). On my Weber Summit, I preheat the grill with all burners set to high for 15 minutes, brush the grill grate clean, then I turn all the burners off except for the two outer burners (burners #1 and #6), which I turn to medium. This gives me a two zone fire – direct medium heat over burners 1 and 6, and indirect medium heat over burners 2–4. (The Elevations bracket goes in the middle of the grill, in the indirect heat section of the grill.)
  2. Season the asparagus: Put the asparagus in the vegetable basket, sprinkle with the salt and pepper, drizzle with the vegetable oil, then toss to coat.
  3. Grill the asparagus: Put the basket with the asparagus directly over the fire and cook the asparagus, turning and tossing it in the pan every couple of minutes, until the asparagus is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Move the grill pan to the indirect heat part of the grill (I use the Elevations system for this), and cook the asparagus with the lid closed until they turn olive green and are cooked all the way through, about 15 more minutes. (I test by biting into one of the thickest spears - if it’s tender, the asparagus is done.)


  • No Elevations system? No worries. Use any grill basket. I like the Elevations system because it gives me more indirect heating space on the grill by adding extra levels I can use. I was cooking chicken wings as our main course, so the extra space was a lot of help.
