Wash and peel carrots. Trim carrot tops, leaving 1-inch tops. Spray a large sheet of heavy-duty foil with nonstick cooking spray. Place carrots on half the foil. Season with salt and pepper. Fold foil in half to cover carrots; make a narrow fold in edges to seal.
Grill foil packet for 30 minutes. While carrots are grilling, combine 2 tablespoons honey, lemon juice, mustard, and thyme in a small bowl; set aside.
Remove packet from grill and carefully open. Place carrots directly on grill rack. Grill for 15 to 20 minutes or until carrots are lightly charred, turning occasionally and brushing with honey-lemon mixture.
Transfer carrots to a serving platter. Drizzle with additional honey and garnish with additional thyme, if desired. Serve with lemon wedges.
