Wash clean and dry asparagus. Cut each piece of asparagus into 3 even (or close to even) pieces.
Wrap each bundle (of 3 pieces) of asparagus with a slice of bacon.
For the grill
For a gas grill, heat grill to 350. For charcoal heat to medium high, making sure the flame doesn't get too high to burn the asparagus.
Place bacon wrapped asparagus into center of grill for 2 minutes, continuously turning.
Remove bacon wrapped asparagus to the outer edges of the grill and continue to cook for 18 minutes with lid closed, for a total cook time of 20 minutes. During that time, turn and flip the asparagus every few minutes to keep the bacon from burning on any sides.
Remove from grill and serve immediately.
For the oven
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Place bacon wrapped asparagus on a cookie sheet and roast for 10-12 minutes or until bacon is slightly crispy.
To speed the cooking process up, you can partially cook the asparagus in boiling water. Then cool them down in ice water before wrapping them in bacon.
To give the asparagus a bit more flavour, try rubbing them in olive oil and sprinkle some black pepper and garlic salt over them.
If the packaged bacon is a bit on the thick side, you can cut the bacon slices lengthwise to make them narrow and then wrap them around the asparagus.
Prosciutto instead of bacon that tastes fenomenal too.
