BBQ Butternut Squash recipe in foil
This butternut squash recipe is one of two on our website, the other one teaches you how to cook butternut squash on the grill in one piece and produces completely different results than this recipe.
This particular recipe produces softer, sweeter results similar to the picture below.
Using these particular 5 ingredients though, is what makes it taste incredible.
Sometimes simple is better.
Serves: 2 - 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Indirect Heat: 400F
Peel and remove the seeds from the squash.
Cut the squash into slices the shape of french fries.
Tip: Some grocery stores are now selling pre-sliced and pre-peeled squash if you'd prefer to save some time.
Sprinkle the brown sugar over the squash.
Place the cubes of butter evenly over the surface of the squash.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper over everything.
This is probably the most important part of cooking butternut squash in foil on the barbecue.
Setup the grill for indirect grilling and heat to 400F.
When the barbecue reaches this temperature place the foil package on the grates (not over direct heat) and close the lid.
You're cooking this butternut recipe for 45 - 50 minutes however after 25 minutes flip the foil package over and close the lid.
Tip: If you have a small warming rack above the main grates that's a perfect spot to put this package of squash like the picture. I'm not using the rear infrared burner though.
Carefully cut open the foil pack and spoon the cooked squash onto a serving plate and serve immediately.
