Step by Step Method

Step 1

Prepare a hot grill (2 to 3 seconds using the Hand Test). Clean and oil the grill grates well.

Step 2

In a large bowl, toss the green beans with the oil and salt until coated. Transfer to a grill basket (or a wire rack set on top of the grill), piling them a few beans high so the ones on top will steam as the ones below char over the fire.

Step 3

Toss the beans every couple of minutes,just until they're tender and slightly charred, about 10 minutes total.

Step 4

Return the beans to the bowl, add the Memphis-Style Seasoning and toss to coat. Serve immediately or refrigerate for later.

These green beans are terrific! Mine turned out a bit spicy because my chili powder is extra hot. We loved these alongside some country style ribs and a baked potato. A very welcome change from the usual steamed veggies! The BBQ was running low on gas, so I made these on a cast iron grill pan on the stove. Perfect! Thanks for sharing - these are a definite keeper!
