Fresh asparagus is delicious when it’s grilled. It’s even better when you wrap each of the spears with a slice of bacon! Instead of using the same type of bacon you always do, look for some of the more “exotic” flavors like Bourbon Smoked, Brown Sugar, Maple Smoked or other artisanal flavored bacon to create a different flavor profile.
There is no set standard as to how many spears of Asparagus are in a bunch. One pound of asparagus yields approximately 30-40 spears for small stalks, 20-30 for standard and 12-18 for large stalks.
1 lb. fresh asparagus
1 package of thick sliced bacon (depending on how long the stalks are, you might want to cut the bacon slices in half)
3 tablespoons of barbecue rub (and/or salt and pepper to taste)
