Grilled Brussels Sprouts

Grilled Brussels Sprouts
So, you don't like Brussels sprouts? I know of several people who never liked them either until they tried cooking them on the grill. Besides being tasty, Brussels sprouts are nutritious too. They are a good source of vitamins K and C and are also a good source of dietary fiber, folate, vitamin A, manganese, potassium and vitamin B6, tryptophan (an essential amino acid), thiamin, iron, phosphorus, protein, magnesium, riboflavin, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, copper and calcium. They are like the multivitamen of the vegetable world. So, get cooking!

You will need:

A pound to a pound and a half of Fresh Brussels Sprouts
3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
3/4 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
Juice of half a lemon
Grill/smoker setup for 325F using indirect heat

1.) Wash the Brussels sprouts. Trim off any of the outer leaves and brown stems that you don't like too.
2.) Toss the Brussels Sprouts in the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
3.) Put them in the grill and close the lid.
4.) Let them cook for 35 to 45 minutes until they are tender on the inside.
