This was a great way to eat asparagus, they cooked in about 7 minutes for me. Great recipe!

This was very simple and delicious. I used coarse sea salt, freshly cracked pepper (lots) and was a bit worried about the grilling because my asparagus was kind of thin. Well...I discovered a new taste treat! The heads of the thinner stalks drooped into the grill grates and got crispy from the fire. I'm now addicted to grilled asparagus with crispy tips. I ate almost the whole batch as if they were candy. Unbelievably delicious...crispy with smoky flavor and the lemon juice was just perfect before serving. Thanks Ellie!
