Grilling potatoes

Does anyone have a tried and true technique for cooking whole potatoes on the grill where they get that great crunchy skin? I've read conflicting versions of how to get it.

Re: What's cooking tonight?

I have not tried and trued it... but I did Google it!

The Grilling Encyclopedia: An A-to-Z Compendium of How to Grill
(main and side bar for how to)

My thought (not tried) For the big baking spuds... if cooked on coals in foil till mostly done then unwrapped and browned/crisped on all sides using tongs to keep turning either on or very near the coals till brown and crispy....
just a thought

Re: What's cooking tonight?

See what I mean? One post, 3 different methods

I'm leaning towards the foil version, but even then I've read conflicting reports on coating with oil, shortening, lard, nothing-at-all, etc. Does the foil or oil prevent crunchyness?

Re: Grilling potatoes

I believe oil prevents crunchiness, and softens skin... the foil helps prevent it from getting charred and also softens the skin because it keeps the steam in...

I don't think you can mess up a potato toooo bad!!

Just have enough taters N try each method plus your own inclinations and let us know what works!! 'Cause I really have NO clue!!

Re: Grilling potatoes

If you want really tasty potato skin, rub it with a little bacon grease and season with salt, pepper, and whatever else you like. Didn't say heart-healthy, just tasty! When I fry bacon, I keep a little in a jar in the fridge for just this purpose.

Re: Grilling potatoes

if i remember correctly, my dad/mom used to grill taters in foil. you rub the skin with lard and close the foil around them and put on the grill. about half way done, you open the top of the foil and cook the rest of the way. but, that's a very old, worn memory, so, good luck

Re: Grilling potatoes

Put the taters on the charcoal or fire place and keep turning them till they are done; they will get black and crunchy.
They are called Mickeys.

Coat the potatoes with butter and sprinkle with coarse salt. Wrap well in foil and then cook in the coals.

Re: Grilling potatoes

If you put a foil-wrapped potato directly onto the coals, would you turn it, and how long would you leave it on?
