How to cook artichokes on the BBQ or grill:
1-2 Tbsp butter
1-2 Tbsp water
lemon juice (optional)
Cut the artichokes in half, then scoop out the pale choke in the center. Oil and salt both sides. Put a few chunks of butter in the center of the artichokes where they are hollowed out. In the center and around the leaves, add a bit of water until the artichoke seems like it won't hold much more. Add a little lemon juice if desired. Wrap the artichokes in two layers of tin foil and place on the grill or directly in the campfire, flat side up. Flip the artichokes a few times while they are cooking to grill them evenly. Cooking time will vary depending on the heat of the BBQ or fire and the size of the artichoke, but typically takes 20-40 minutes. No need for dipping sauces - the flavor is cooked right in!
