INSTRUCTIONS For Grilling Watermelon:

Heat grill on high. Make sure to grease the grill grates. Place the watermelon slices on the grill towards the back, where the grill is hottest. Leave on the grill approx. 7-10 mins untouched to achieve char marks. To check for doneness, carefully lift a piece off the grill but replace it in the same spot.
