Re: Grilling potatoes

Shoot it is 2 oclock in the morning in Savannah and this potatoe thing sounds good... Yes I have heard of this.. I have cooked potatoes rubbing oil on the skin sprinkling salt rapping in foil and putting directly on the coals.. and turning a few times.. Also have cooked corn on the cob like this.. Pull back the husks clean off the silk and add butter and a little salt, pull the husks back up around the corn wrap in foil and put them on the coals and turn a few times.. take off and serve.... ...... ...

Re: Grilling potatoes

OK, I finally got around to trying this. After using a fork to poke them full of holes I sprayed my spuds with canola oil and doublewrapped in aluminum foil. Placed them directly on the coals and flipped them after about 20 minutes. All told they were on the coals about 45 minutes (didn't want to risk flipping them again after the main course went on the grill).

They were wonderful! Only one side got the slightly crunchy effect I was looking for (I assume that was the part that got more coal-time) but that was more than enough. In fact, if they had been crunchy all around it might have been too much.

However, after lifting the lid and removing the meat the increased oxygen caused one of the befoiled tubers to catch fire! No harm done, just a bit of soot on the foil. I assume it was from the meat dripping on it. And well worth the extra entertainment.

Re: Grilling potatoes

excellent, doug

when you do it just right (to me, anyways) the skins will be brittle/crunchy but the inside with still be tender/soft.

but, sounds like you got em how you like em

Re: Grilling potatoes

I usually poke them with a fork put in microwave depending on wattage mine is a 1000 watt for 7 minutes then put on the top rack of the grill with out foil about 15 minutes before i start cooking the rest of the meal... and remove when done they come out pretty good...
