Smoked/Grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

There are vegetables and there are vegetables smoked or grilled with bacon. Lightly oiled spears of asparagus kissed by smoke and heat are fabulous, I prefer them with a little something extra. Enter: Parmesan cheese


  • Prereheat Smoker or grill with Lump Charcoal to 250 degrees F
  • Clean asparagus in cold water
  • Remove woody ends, grab stalk of asparagus at either end and bend until it snaps. It will naturally snap where it starts to get tough.
  • Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears, then sprinkle with Three Little Pig’s All Purpose Rub and Parmesan cheese
  • Take a hand full and wrap with thin cut bacon into bundles.
  • Lightly apply more Three Little Pig’s All Purpose Rub and Parmesan cheese on the bundles
  • Smoke in Smoker until the bacon crisps up, usually 35-45 minutes.
