Equipment

  • Grill
  • Smoker, optional

Ingredients

  • 1 Bunch Asparagus
  • 1 lb Bacon Whole30 Compliant
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ tsp Pepper

Instructions

  • Clean the asparagus and trim 1-2 inches from the bottom removing the woody ends.
  • Place asparagus in a shallow dish and drizzle with oil, apple cider vinegar, and sprinkle with seasonings.
  • Use your hands to coat asparagus evenly.
  • Take 3-4 spears of asparagus and wrap with one piece of raw bacon creating a bundle.
  • Preheat the smoker for 5-10 minutes and then place asparagus bundles straight onto the grill and smoke for 10-15 minutes. See Notes
  • Turn heat up to medium and grill for approximately 10 minuter per side or until bacon is crisp and cooked thoroughly.
  • Remove from grill and enjoy!

Notes

  • To make this recipe without a smoker simply preheat your grill and grill on medium heat for 10 minutes on each side or until the bacon is crispy.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  • I have found that the best way to reheat this recipe is on a skillet just until warmed or in the air fryer on a medium-low heat just until warmed.
