Grilled Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are one of those vegetables that I've always felt like I should like but never actually liked that much.  They are packed with nutrients and fiber and very filling.  As a child I always had them boiled with a little butter and they were just never very appealing.  It turns out that I love Brussels sprouts when they are cooked the right way.  Between the garlic and the wonderful grill marks this recipe packs a bunch of flavor.  It's a great side dish for whatever meat you want to cook on the grill.

1 bag of Brussels sprouts, or if you are able to find them loose 20-25
wooden skewers
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp cracked black pepper

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 10 minutes.  
  2. Thread 5 Brussels sprouts onto each wooden skewer.  
  3. In a small bowl, mix olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.  
  4. Use a basting brush to paint olive oil mixture onto Brussels sprouts.  Make sure to coat all sides.  
  5. Place Brussels sprouts directly onto grill over medium heat.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes.  
  6. After 5 minutes, rotate skewers, cover, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.  
  7. Remove from grill and serve either on or off skewers.  

I threw a few wood chips in the bottom of my smoker grill so I got a
great woody flavor in addition to the garlic and spices.  

Goes great with a stuffed pork chop!
