Grilled Carrots are an easy summer side! They grill up in under 20 minutes, are perfectly tender, and get slightly caramelized. They're great just with simple oil, salt, and pepper but you can also add other seasonings.


  • 2 lbs whole carrots
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Prep - Get the grill preheating to Medium heat (about 400-450 degrees F. and for zone cooking (ie a direct heat and indirect heat section). Prep the carrots by peeling them and cutting off the leafy stem.
  2. Season Carrots - Toss the carrots with the oil and salt and pepper.
  3. Grill - Place the carrots over the direct heat, close the lid, and grill for about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally for even grill marks. Once the carrots have grill marks to your preference, move the carrots to the indirect heat zone, close the lid, and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes until fork tender.
  4. Serve - Serve immediately and enjoy!


Use Direct and Indirect Grilling - Direct Heat grilling (placing the food over the flame) is great to give the carrots grill marks and char, while Indirect Heat grilling (placing the food on the grill that isn't over the flame) lets the carrots finish cooking without getting too charred on the outside.
