Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Grilled asparagus wrapped in bacon is hands down one of my favorite sides to make! When buying the ingredients, make sure to purchase enough bacon slices to account for 1 slice of bacon for every 3 asparagus spears. Serve this grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus as a side or eat it by itself for an amazing snack! Trust me, this will be your go to way of making asparagus from now on!



  • 24 fresh asparagus stalks, ends trimmed
  • 8 slices of bacon, regular cut
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


1.    Preheat the grill

Preheat the grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.    Prep the asparagus for grilling

Remove the tough, bottom ends of the asparagus by either snapping them off or cutting them with a knife. Toss the asparagus in olive oil and then season with salt & pepper. Grab 3 asparagus stalks and hold them together evenly. Starting right under the tips of the stalks, wrap tightly with a piece of bacon down to the bottom - overlap if needed. Continue with the remaining asparagus bunches.

3.    Grill the bacon wrapped asparagus

Place the bacon wrapped asparagus bunches directly on the grill grate and grill for 25-30 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the asparagus is tender.

4.    Serve the grilled bacon wrapped asparagus

Remove the bacon wrapped asparagus from the grill, let cool for a few minutes, and enjoy them as a side or by themselves for an amazing snack!



Grilled Lobster Tails With Lemon Garlic Butter

These grilled lobster tails are quick, easy, and ridiculously delicious! Serve them alongside a beautifully crusted steak and you’ll have a meal that rivals a high-end restaurant. Make these Grilled Lobster Tails at your next BBQ and wow everyone!



  • 2 Lobster tails, 8-10 ounces each
  • 2 Lemons, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Flat-leaf parsley, for garnish

Lemon Garlic Butter

  • 8 tablespoons Unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons Flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Shallot, minced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper

Helpful Tools

  • 1 ThermoPro Instant Read Thermometer, optional


1.    Split the lobster tails in half

Using a sharp knife, split the lobster tails into 2 halves lengthwise. I recommend this method as it will allow the butter to sit in the shell instead of dripping off - trust me on this one!

2.    Make the lemon garlic butter mixture

In a bowl, mix the softened butter with the parsley, shallot, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix together until smooth.

3.    Preheat the grill

Preheat the grill to to 425°F.

4.    Grill the lobster tails

When the grill reaches 425°F, place the lobster tails on the grill flesh side down, and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip them over and spoon about 1/4 of the butter onto each lobster tail half. As the butter begins to melt, baste with a brush to coat the entire tail. Cook for approximately 4-5 more minutes until cooked through. I usually aim for an internal temperature of 135-140°F using a thermometer (some people like it cooked less).

5.    Serve the grilled lobster tails

Sprinkle the grilled lobster tails with parsley (optional) and serve with lemon slices. Enjoy!


Can I use whole lobsters instead of just the tails?

Absolutely! I recommend splitting them the same way - right down the middle lengthwise. Just make sure to clean out the tomalley from the body before grilling! You can also use the end of the knife right by the handle to crack open the claws. If using wood or charcoal to grill it will add some flavor to the claw meat.

Do I have to split the lobster tails in half?

There are many methods on how to open lobster tails for grilling. I love the way recommended in the recipe as it builds a boat for the butter to sit in. You can also use a pair of shears to cut down the top of the shell and pull the meat out to rest on top (see my post here). This way definitely looks better from a presentation standpoint, but all the butter will run off as it grills.
