I’m always on the lookout for a simple, quick and easy grilled side dish. It doesn’t have to be fru-fru, but it does have to be tasty, like these planked lemon pepper Brussels Sprouts. I recently purchased a big lot of Kosmo’s Q wing seasonings. The lemon pepper seasoning is off-the-charts yummy on wings, and it got me thinking… how great would it be on grilled Brussels sprouts? Well the answer, of course, is fantastic! Nothing goes together better than lemon, pepper and sprouts!
You could roast these planked lemon pepper Brussels sprouts in the oven, or grill them directly on your grill or in a vegetable basket. But I love cooking on cedar planks. They add just a hint of cedar, something different, something good.
Don’t be shy with the Kosmo’s Q lemon pepper seasoning. It’s quite lemony, it’s quite peppery, and more is better.
If you decide to use a grill basket instead of a cedar plank, an investment in a good, quality basket is well worth it. I use mine a lot. It makes dishes like this easier to make. And it’s super easy to clean up. I have a large one and a small one.

Planked Lemon Pepper Brussels Sprouts
- 2 pounds Brussel sprouts
- 1 tablespoon Kosmos Q Lemon Pepper Wing Dust or more, to taste
- olive oil
- Place a cedar plank in water while preparing the sprouts.
- Bring a medium pot of water to a slow boil.
- Trim the ends off the sprouts and remove any loose leaves. Cut each sprout in half lengthwise.
- Add the sprouts to the water. Let simmer for 10 or so minutes, until the largest ones can be poked with a toothpick with just a little resistance.
- Remove the sprouts from the water and rinse with cold water. Drain very well.
- Fire up your grill for direct cooking, around 400 F.
- Gently toss the sprouts with the oil. Just use enough to lightly coat them.
- Sprinkle with the Kosmos Q Lemmon Pepper wing dust. How much you add is up to you, but my opinion is more is better.
- Transfer the sprouts to the plank. If you place them cut-side down you won't have to worry as much about them rolling off as you move the plank.
- Transfer to the grill and grill for 20-25 minutes or until the plank is charred and the Brussels sprout leaves have a little char on them too.
