Asparagus with Prosciutto

Asparagus with Prosciutto!  Yes, I know it is just a side and no, I know it is not an original combination, but man was it good. We love asparagus and I have been grilling it for years.  It is a finicky grilled food because it has to be done just right or you are left with a less than desirable outcome.  With that in mind, I can safely say this was the best. 

The saltiness of the meat eliminated the need to add anything else to the asparagus.  All I did was take the prosciutto and wrap it around two spears.  I placed the spears over medium direct heat and grilled each side for approximately 2 minutes.  Because the prosciutto will burn, I moved the spears to indirect for another 8-10 minutes to finish the cook.  I cannot wait to have this again.

It worked really well with a good week of grilling that included a rotisserie chicken with Italian herbs, kabobs, turkey/pork chili, and pulled pork.
