Brussels Sprouts on the Grill!

I do like Brussels sprouts, but let's face it - they stink.  The only way I'm allowed to bring them home is if they're prepared outside.  Now that we have a grill, I brought home a bag of them from this past Farmers Market.

For my first attempt at grilling them, I cleaned/trimmed the sprouts, tossed them with lemon juice and stored them overnight in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge (hoping that would prevent them from stinking up the fridge). The next night I drizzled them in olive oil and gave them a generous sprinkle of sweet onion flavored cane sugar, plus sea salt and pepper.  The sugar was probably a mistake, and I should have been more attentive to the time, as they got a little more charred than planned. While not exactly pretty, they tasted fine. But, it was a good start to the experimentation process, and with some minor adjustments I think they might become a regular in the grilled vegetable line up.
