1 cedar plank 1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed 2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Prepare a grill. Soak the cedar plank in water for 30 minutes.
Place the asparagus in a bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Remove the plank from the water and pat dry. Using a brush, brush 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil on the top side of the plank.
Lay the asparagus on the plank in a single layer.
Arrange the plank on the grill - off heat. (If using a charcoal grill push the coals to one side. If using a gas grill, turn one side off and put the plank on the "off-side".) Cover the grill and cook for about 8-10 minutes or until the asparagus are just cooked tender. Remove the asparagus from the plank and serve immediately.
