BBQ Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus Bundles

Low heat on a charcoal fire is perfect for grilling these bundles. Over low heat, fat renders out of the prosciutto, causing it to shrink and tightly grip the asparagus bundles. I often lay 1/2 of the charcoal on one side of the grill for a hot fire and the other 1/2 for a low fire, for cooking vegetables like these.This recipe is one I found in "Cuisine at Home" magazine. It is a wonderful side dish to "dress up" your outdoor grilled dinner menu.
