Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh whole carrots carrot tops removed
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoons fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic glaze

Instructions

  • Scrub or peel carrots until they are clean and free of dirt. Lay the carrots out on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper then sprinkle with brown sugar. Toss the carrots a few times to ensure they are evenly coated.
  • Preheat your grill to 450 degrees F for two-zone cooking (one zone includes direct heat and a second zone is cool where there isn't any direct heat).
  • Place the seasoned carrots directly on the grill grates on the indirect side of the grill, close the lid, and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Move the carrots over to the direct heat side of the grill and cook for 3-5 minutes per side, rotating them 3-4 times until they are fully cooked. Use a meat thermometer to gauge the carrots doneness, and cook your carrots until they reach either 195 degrees F for tender-crisp carrots or up to 200 degrees F for softer carrots.
  • Remove the carrots from the grill and drizzle with the balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.
