Grilled Bell Peppers

Grilled Bell Peppers

Grilled bell peppers are relatively basic but transform into something impressive with a delicious balsamic marinade. Rather than marinating before grilling, this recipe turns the process on its head with a reverse marinade. First, the peppers are lightly brushed with oil and seasoned. Next, they head to the pellet grill before spending some time in the marinade.
