Ingredients:  
8 slices of Italian bread (preferably unsalted Tuscan bread), cut Ĺ inch thick
1 to 2 cloves garlic, cut in half
2 to 3 tablespoons of the best cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil you can find, preferably Tuscan
Coarse sea salt
Freshly coarse ground black pepper

Directions:
Directions:
1 Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to medium-high.
2. When ready to cook, throw a cupful of unsoaked wood chips on the coals (if using). Arrange the bread slices on the hot grate and grill until nicely browned on both sides, 2 to 4 minutes per side, rotating the slices 60 degrees after 30 seconds or so to create an attractive crosshatch of grill marks. Donít take your eyes off the grill for a second; grilled bread burns very easily.
3. Transfer the bread slices to the cool edge of the grill or to a platter. Rub the top of each bread slice generously with cut garlic. Drizzle olive oil over the bread and generously sprinkle salt and pepper on top. Serve at once.

There are fancier versions of Bruschetta, but none can rival the elemental
flavor of this one.
