Have you tried using a grill basket for asparagus? I have a great new flat basket from Pampered Chef that works great. They don't fall through the grill slats and are less likely to burn.

I bought a bunch of asparagus at the Haymarket Farmer's Market on Saturday with this recipe in mind. It was delicious! Had it with grilled burgers made with local, organic beef (also from the market) served on locally-made whole wheat sourdough bread and organic spinach salad with homemade vinigrette. Yum yum yum!

Try peeling the asparagus first - it makes a huge difference!! And a splash of lemon or lime juice is amazing also!
