Ingredients

  • 1 pound carrots (if thick carrots, slice down the middle lengthwise)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

For the Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • teaspoon salt (just a pinch)
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat grill for direct/indirect cooking.
  • Toss carrots in olive oil, then place directly on the grill. Rotate every few minutes to get a slight char on each side. If they begin to burn move them to indirect heat (about 12-15 minutes total cooking time). 
  • Just before pulling the carrots off the grill glaze them once. Let them cook one more minute on the grill, then remove from grill and glaze one more time. Serve immediately. 

For the Honey Glaze

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat add butter, brown sugar, honey, and salt and mix together. For additional flavor add cinnamon and orange juice. Whisk frequently until the brown sugar dissolves. Glaze the carrots immediately with the hot glaze.

Notes

When grilling the carrots, it's likely some spots on your grill are hotter. Move them around to get even grill marks. If some carrots are done early, move them to indirect heat before glazing until they are all done.
