Best veggies for grilling?

I keep reading about the yummy vegis that you guys keep grilling. I have never grilled vegis. I would like to give it a try this summer. What are your favourite vegis to grill?

Zucchini, protobello mushrooms, peppers, sweet onions, asparagus. These you can grill whole on the grate. You can also use a grill basket to grill a combination of cut up veggies.

Either way, toss with oil and season as you like then grill.

What Andy said. Potatoes are nice too. And while not a veggie, I just LOVE grilled pineapple. Corn on the cob too.

Yep, I'm doing another basket tonight with all the mentioned veggies cut up, except potatoes. I'll try them next time.

I like to use both olive oil and vinegar with spices for the marinade, but actually Wishbone Italian salad dressing right out of the bottle is good too.

My grill basket is one of the best things I own. Here's dinner tonight with marinated veggies and Lil Smokies. Spanish rice on the side.

Balsamic & rosemary marinated Cippolini onions, Asparagus with a little lemon and sea salt, sweet potato finished with a little sugar, cardamom and nutmeg, green tomatoes with vinegar and queso fresco, almost any mushroom (sans enoki, unless you have a grill basket), brussel sprouts with balsamic and bacon, zucchini/squash with olive oil and fresh herbs, my favorite is crazy corn: Grilled corn on the cob, smeared with a little mayo then rolled in queso fresco or even parm, grilled a little more and hit it with some hot sauce.

While I grill a lot of veggies, I find the best ones for grilling, where grilling enhances them, are the ones that caramelize. Things like bell peppers, onions (sliced and laid flat), corn if you can reach that point where some of the kernels are just starting to turn brown/black, definitely zucchini, which needs all the help/flavor it can get, lol... moist veggies that pick up grill marks I think are best. Other veggies like potatoes and portobellos come out just as well in the oven if I let them get dark enough. I grill them just because the grill is going.
I think the combination of a black grill mark and a moist veggie is bliss.

Thank you for all the suggestions.

What about sliced carrots? Celery? Root vegis?

Carrots are nice, but you need a glaze (IMO) and they take a while, even sliced.
