Whisk together the lemon vinaigrette and set aside.
Using a sharp knife trim the stems from each artichoke and remove any small leaves towards the bottom. Cut the artichokes in half and cut out the choke and remove the purple, prickly leaves for the center.
Place the artichokes into the pot, reduce heat to a simmer, and cover. Cook for 20-40 minutes, depending on the size. (The artichoke should be tender and the leaves should easily pull off.)
Meanwhile, preheat your grill to medium-high.
Carefully remove artichokes and brush them with the lemon vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper and place artichokes on preheated grill. Grill for 10 minutes until charred, flipping halfway and adding more vinaigrette as you go.
Serve with the remaining vinaigrette and lemon wedges.
Make artichokes ahead of time to cut down cooking time!
