    I have been grilling veggies for years, it was a great way to get my grandchildren interested in vegetables. Their favorite after all these years is zucchini, on the grill topped off with a little parmesan cheese.

    Undoubtedly better on a hardwood coal bbq than on a gas grill but not bad. 3-4 minutes per side is utopia however, unless you like your squash "rare" and crunchy... I ended up finishing mine on the high grill, away from the burners. BTW, well cooked, the butternut skin becomes perfectly edible. Saves a lot of cumbersome peeling time and it's probably healthier too.

    Disturbing. Looks like a sliced, grilled phallus. But very tasty.

    This recipe was super easy to make (except cutting up the squash). I had a very small squash and should have cut the garlic down. Other than that, great idea! It was nice and sweet as well. Thanks!

    This was so easy. Great for late summer. I would add more garlic next time.

    Very simple to make and delicious! Love the way the savoriness of the garlic plays off the sweetness of the butternut squash.
