This is a appetizer my husband made for all of us at the lake. I gave it my extra special touch though :) We used foil over top of the grill and placed the stuffed mushrooms on top of a aluminum baking pan and grilled at a low temperature for about a hour. It may vary on other grills. Friends have already requested these for our annual Christmas party.
