Once you get your charcoal ignited you can get back to preparing your bacon wrapped asparagus bundles while the grill itself heats up. If you are using a gas grill you can set the temp to medium heat.
Preparing Bacon Wrapped Asparagus for the Grill
Trim the ends of your asparagus spears. Trim approximately 1 – 1.5 inches from the thick white-ish end.
To make your bacon wrapped asparagus bundles wrap 3 stalks of asparagus with one slice of bacon. Only wrap 3/4 of the way up the spears leaving the ends unwrapped. Secure each bundle of wrapped asparagus with a toothpick.
Do this for all of your bacon and asparagus until you run out of one or the other (or both). Next, season to taste with salt and pepper.
Grilling Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
