We make this Traeger asparagus at least once a week. It’s super fast and easy, and it makes the perfect 10-minute side for any summer meal. We coat it in parmesan cheese and the perfect mix of seasonings and then grill it to perfection.



1 pound asparagus spears

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne


  1. Preheat your Traeger or pellet grill to 400°F.
  2. Trim the woody ends off the bottom of your asparagus (the bottom inch or so). Then place it on a sheet pan or in a large mixing bowl, and add the oil, parmesan, salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and ground cayenne. Mix until the asparagus is evenly coated.
  3. Put the asparagus directly onto the grill and cook, undisturbed, for 5-7 minutes, or until tender. It should still be slightly crunchy but easy to bite into.


Don't overcook the asparagus. It really only takes about 5 minutes and it gets soggy when overcooked. 

We use fresh grated parmesan, but you can buy it pre-grated if you prefer. Just buy the good stuff in the refrigerated section, not the cylindrical shelf-stable containers—it’s so much better.
