Let's get grilling

1 Slice the tips off the zucchini and then slice lengthwise. Remove the inner part of the zucchini with a spoon or melon baller so there is a place to add the stuffing.
2 Load Kingsford® Charcoal with Hickory into your Masterbuilt Gravity Series 800 Griddle, set temperature to 425°F.
3 Add zucchini boats to warming rack.
4 Add Italian sausage, garlic, and tomatoes to griddle. Stir to combine. Cook through.
5 Scoop sausage mixture into zucchini boats on warming rack. Top with mozzarella cheese.
6 Cook for an additional 10–15 minutes or until the cheese has melted, the zucchini is fork tender, and Italian sausage reaches an internal temperature of 160°F.
7 Garnish with fresh basil, serve immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste and Super EASY! Made this on my pellet grill by following the same instructions below. Very Flavorful and easy dinner! Used homegrown zucchini and tomatoes (added Italian Herbs to tomatoes while draining). I did recalculate the recipe for 2 people: one big zucchini, about 6 average sized tomatoes, 1/4 lb. sausage, 1 garlic clove and about 1/4 cup mozzarella.
