I was inspired to create this recipe by the grilled artichokes at our favorite restaurant. My husband thinks mine are better. Top with mayonnaise instead of butter if you prefer.

Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a stockpot to half full with water. Stir Italian seasoning, basil, thyme, liquid smoke, olive oil, salt, and white wine into water. Squeeze the lemon wedges over the mixture and drop the wedge into the pot. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat; add the artichoke halves and continue to boil until tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove artichokes from water and drain upside down on paper towel; allow to cool to the touch. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.

  • Lightly coat the cooled artichoke halves with cooking spray. Cook artichoke halves on grill until edges are slightly charred. Drizzle with melted butter to serve.

I boiled the artichokes whole, then cut them in half and removed the choke (I think it's easier that way). Also, we just dip the leaves in butter or mayonnaise when we eat them. Any way you do it, these are the best artichokes you will ever taste! Read More

made this last night and it was excellent! Cut the chokes in half after the fridge, and choked them, then grilled. Served with a garlic mayonaise instead of butter and they were the best artichokes I've ever had. Read More

Delicious. I loved them!!!! I followed it pretty closely but I didn't use the liquid smoke and instead of using a grill I broiled them and turned them every few minutes. I also put butter on top while I was broiling them. Oh and I didn't remove the chokes because that was the best part. Read More
