You thought you didn’t like brussel sprouts til you roasted them on the @STOKGrills Charcoal Drum Using Their wok insert


I never thought I liked brussel sprouts but we were doing mushroom swiss burgers with sauteed onions and I was looking for a side.  At Stop and Shop in East Gloucester they had brussel sprouts on sale for $2 a bag so I figured I could do something with them on the grill.

I never thought I’d have such a passion for BBQ Charcoal grilling but this grill with all the different inserts and the cast iron grates and the ash catching system at the bottom and the figuring out how to arrange your coals, it’s just straight up addicting. The process just takes you away and while I can’t imagine why some people like to golf, I imagine it’s the same type of thing- that you immerse yourself in the process and the stresses of every day life go away because you need to be focused.   It’s been a joy and the thing that takes the STOK grill system to the next level is all the cool inserts that you can use to try different types of cooking with wood chunks, chips and/or charcoal.

Anyway, preparing and roasting the brussel sprouts couldn’t be easier. 

You wash them under cold water and dry them, cut them in half length-wise drizzle them with Atlantic Saltworks coarse salt, crushed black pepper and some garlic powder and place them cut side down on the wok insert or if you don’t have the wok insert , a good seasoned cast iron pan will do.  Get the grill up to 400 degrees and move them around a little as you cook.   About 15 minutes and they’ll bring out that sweet caramelizing  from the heat.   If you didn’t think you liked brussel sprouts, you really ought to give them a try this way.
