Bourbon Barrel Smoked Asparagus!

I didn’t even eat asparagus until the last 10 years or so.  I wouldn’t even try it.  But we just had the best asparagus I have ever had.  I would eat this stuff every day if I could!  I want to plant asparagus in the garden even though it will take 3 years for me to get a crop.  It would be worth the wait!  

I had about 1 1/2 pounds of asparagus (feeding a pretty big crowd) washed them directly in the gallon ziploc bag, drained the water, poured a little olive oil in the bag, coating the asparagus. Grind sea salt, pepper and garlic (all freshly ground) right into the bag. Make sure all the asparagus is coated.  We made little aluminum foil ‘boats’ for the asparagus, put a little aluminum foil package of smoker chips (quickly soaked in water) with a few holes poked in so the smoke can come out on the grill next to the asparagus boats.  Close the lid and let the smoke do magic.  Cook time was about 10 minutes.  I can’t even begin to tell you how good this was!  Gotta try it!!
