Preheat the SIZZLE ZONE side burner on your Napoleon Grills Prestige P500 RSIB, set to medium high heat. Sprinkle the cut sides of the lemons with a little sugar. Place them cut side down directly on the side burner. Grill the halved and sliced lemons until slightly charred. Juice the halved lemons (save the slices for garnish), you’ll need 1 cup of juice, total, then chill the juice.
