Asparagus Bombs
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 lg. bunches fresh Asparagus
  • 1 lg. red onion , sliced
  • 2 whole lemons, sliced
  • 2 whole limes, sliced
  • 6 sliced fresh garlic cloves
  • 1 small bag (3/4) cup of cajun spice powder (used 8 tsp.)

  • 1 generous sprinkling of garlic salt
  • 1/2 stick butter - cut into fourths (used 2 Tbsp.)

DIRECTIONS
  1. First, spread out a large sheet of aluminum foil approx. 24 x 16 on your working area. Place all the cleaned and stemmed asparagus on the foil and add all ingredients evenly to asparagus until well covered.
  2. Now, splash some red wine (Cabernet) on the top of your bomb and wish it well.
  3. Take both sides of your foil and bring them together above the asparagus and fold over until you reach the top layer of your asparagus.
  4. Fold over the ends of the bomb so as to create a well-sealed bomb.
  5. Cooking Directions:Place your bomb on a smoker grill at 300 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes.
  6. Allow your bomb to steam; away from any open flames.
  7. Asparagus should be firm and crunchy to ensure proper presentation.
  8. If you make this in the oven I would suggest baking the whole thing at 400ºF. for 15 min. and then checking it for doneness
